LITTLE PORTION gets its name from Porziuncola (“little portion of land”) that was the most sacred place for the early Franciscans. It was here that the young Francis understood his vocation and embarked on his own lifelong formation and that of forming the three orders that continue to exist today. This new TSSF publication offers a ‘little portion’ of wisdom from local groups, areas and the provincial networks as a means of nurturing our members in their own personal growth as well as nourishing them in their engagement with building community both within and beyond TSSF.Little Portion, Issue 1, June 2012
With the theme for this first issue of Prophetic Voices in our Time, I think it's good, general reading, whether you're of a Franciscan persuasion or none.
(And no, I'm not on commission to the editorial team, in case you wondered!)
