Franciscan Delight

To be Franciscan is such a delight.
This life’s charism fills one with light.
Peace foreshadows a healthy interior life.
Following God’s Love through struggle and strife.

To be Franciscan is such a delight.
This life’s charism leads one to insight.
Poverty of Spirit helps one to be humble.
Humble of heart helps one when you stumble.

To be Franciscan is such a delight
As you call on Christ to keep you from fright.
Surrendering in prayer your heart’s desire
To the Source of life who can inspire.

To be Franciscan is such a delight
Spirit-filled Christ-life enables one to stay in
His light.
Reaching out to the needy lets His Light shine
Causing joy and love to intertwine.

To be Franciscan is such a delight.
Living the Franciscan Way keeps my heart abreast
To a Christ-center with eyes on the “Guest”
Who freely gives me new life and light.

All praise and Thanksgiving to my God and my all.

Sr. La Donna M. Pinkelman, OSF
