When I was first inspired to found the Order of Franciscan Hermits, I was told to "Gather the Brothers so we may be One." One of the dimensions of this request by the Lord was to "Promote Franciscans and the work they are doing throughout the world."
While we all have Google and YouTube, it is difficult finding "One" place where we can find the latest News, Videos, Podcasts and other articles from Franciscan Communities throughout the world. In an effort to "Promote" the various Communities and Franciscan Ministries on the internet, I created the "Franciscan Digest - World Outreach" website found at https://FranciscanDigest.com.
The website assembles various "RSS feeds" that different Franciscan Communities publish and aggregates them into one place with the newest posts showing at the top of the website. Each RSS feed is checked once per hour by the server, so check back often for new Franciscan posts. It would be impossible for me to review every post since we have feeds from hundreds of websites, so you will sometimes see missing videos or "broken" links... those are issues on the external websites, not on our Franciscan Digest website.
If your Franciscan Community or Ministry would like to be included on this website, please send your RSS Feed, YouTube or Podcast URL to BrPaul@FranciscanHermits.org for possible inclusion on our website. Because of the intensive computer resources these feeds require, we are not able to include all requests.
The website is free to use, but we would appreciate your Support to help maintain this important service. Thank You!
Br, Paul, OFH
Founder and Guardian of the Order of Franciscan Hermits
