New York Times Article on the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

Fr. Luke Mary Fletcher, CFR, vocations director for the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, sent out an email with a link to a surprisingly positive article in the New York Times about the Friars. Perhaps most surprising was the neutral/positive coverage of the Friars pro-life work. Overall the article reads as though it were written for a Catholic publication, not the New York Times, and does a really good job of writing about the Friars prayer life and spirituality.

Take the time and read the article here.

There is also a slideshow with some great photos.

Man, great article! Are we sure that was the New York Times? I guess that no one can help but be moved by the example of the friars. I was really happy that they got such a favorable review regarding their Pro Life activity. The planned parenthood creeps came out looking resentful and unapproachable, which is a huge stigma as far as the media goes. The New York Times just did vocations recruiting for the CFRs!
