Also, be sure to take the opportunity to congratulate Fr. Dan on his long-awaited debut as a published author! Franciscan Lectio: Reading the World Through the Living Word is the title of Fr. Dan’s reflective book and if you own a copy, he would be happy to sign it after Mass at the reception! Copies are getting scarce, but the publisher has already gone into a second printing!
Please let us know that you are coming to join us by signing up on the SBU Alumni page HERE.
Franciscan Lectio is for all those who are on a spiritual journey who long to see the world more beautifully and deeply and become more attentive and present. In Franciscan Lectio, Fr. Dan comes alongside us in our own encounters with lectio and inspires our spiritual imagination through story, art, poetry, nature, Franciscan mysticism and Scripture — helping us to see that all of life is unitive and sacred.
Fr. Dan takes us on a journey with him as he became a friar and ministered at St. Bonaventure University for many years, while also founding Mt. Irenaeus. Sharing his own experiences and the Franciscan heritage, he opens for us a journey influenced by, among others, Thomas Merton, St. Francis of Assisi and St. Clare of Assisi who offer us a practice of “gazing, considering, contemplating and acting” – living the Good News today filled with a sense of beauty and hope.
If you’re spending time with us and wish to share some of your pictures, please use the hashtag #mtirenaeus or email them to [email protected] so we may use them on the website, social media and in printed publications. Thanks!
