The Most Reverend Philip Freier tssf, Archbishop of Melbourne,Â was recently interviewed by the ABC Radio National’s Religion Report. In the interview he was asked about his active interaction with the public by being ‘out and about’ on theÂ streets of Melbourne. The interviewer then asked him if this newÂ approach had anything to do with him being a member of the Third Order Society of St Francis. + Freier was very open in his response about how St Francis had been an infuence in his lifeÂ and what it meant to be a tertiary. Â
Story Teller Dr Bob Wilhelm was the keynote speaker at the Third Order Society of St Francis Conference held in Perth WA. Bob delivered a fascinating series of talks on storytelling; using familiar Franciscan stories. Conference attendees marvelled as Bob used these familiar stories to not only bring them alive for us, but to show us how story telling can be a means of helping others to explore Franciscan Spirituality in a real and meaningful way.
