BrotherPaul Ofh We pray for WORLD PEACE and that the Church be restored and United into One Body in Christ. For all of our World Leaders that they may be guided by the Lord and make ethical decisions to bring about World Peace and end hunger, all violence and terrorism, poverty and loss of innocent lives. For our Order of Franciscan Hermits Associates and Members, and for ALL Franciscans everywhere. In Love and Compassion for One Another, We pray that we can focus on what UNITES us as Franciscans and as Christians, rather than on what Divides us. We pray for those who are sick, homeless, imprisoned, have addictions, for victims of abuse and crimes, for martyrs of the faith, for all church leaders and for those who have no one to pray for them. Thank You Lord for All you have given us, Help us to share the Abundance You have given us with all of our Brothers and Sisters in need.

John Allen Green Sunday 31st December, 2017
Dearest family, friends, brothers and sisters, prayer partners and associates,
Wishing you all the peace and goodness of the light that has come into the world during this Christmas and every blessing for peace in the New Year.
My dear sister Alta sold the premises in Ferndale and I will sadly be leaving my little hermitage in this coming week. A new Hermitage is being provided by my brother Kenneth and his wife Susan in Mayersdal, Alberton, with occupation from 1st February 2018. In the interim I will be staying with family and friends in Glenvista, Johannesburg which is in close proximity to the more Mulbarton hospital.
Thanks to the intercession of our Lady of Guadalupe I have been free from pain since her feast day and have been given the strength and mobility needed to undertake this move. In all things we thank and praise you O Lord!
The congenital heart failure and COPD are quite stable with the use of alternative natural medicines in the form of Cannabis Sativa THC/CBD Extract. Conventional medication and treatments had horrific side effects that were almost as bad as the chronic illnesses themselves. My blood pressure can drop quite drastically leading to confusion which aggravates what the doctors refer to as “foggy brain”. The osteoarthritis is of course always in the background as a reminder of younger days when I thought myself invincible.
The operations to remove the cataracts in the eyes with new lenses was an amazing success and I continue to wonder at the beautiful colours that has returned with my new vision.
Thanks to the support of the Knights of da Gama, the web page for spirituality, gospel reflections and Sunday homilies over the last five years has been supplemented by pod casts through Spreaker and You-tube over this last year. A big thank you also to those who have sent me comments or critique on my work; this is always greatly appreciated. As a hermit I continue with the daily Gregorian masses said for the South African OFM province and for the intentions of family, friends, benefactors and my associates, the Order of Franciscan Hermits.
Thank you to my Franciscan brothers in Boksburg and around the country, friends from St Pius X in Pretoria, Regina Pacis in Ladysmith and the Knights of da Gama who continue to support my work, correspond and visit; you are always in my prayers with gratitude.
My two little companions, Lily and Mojo will continue to travel with me through these moves and are both well although they are now missing the pack of five dogs that I cared for and who would accompany me on my daily walks along with the gardeners’ baby son Jason.
With all my love and blessings,
your little brother John Allen ofm
