Thoughts From Abba's Place

Looking over some old photos of being a Franciscan friar, pastor, nomadic roaming Catholic heretic.. I realized that I have been greatly blessed! Having lost my

beautiful wife at the start of finding myself again, within the Franciscan family.....its been a good journey even with the pain and many tears! I am finding peace at last and though I do not see myself as a particularly good example of a holy friar...I am raw and real and am living loved! My sincere thanks to all who have journeyed with me and continue to do so!

Pax et Bonum!
