The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls invite you to join them for a retreat entitled, Becoming Saints, Becoming Free, to be held Monday-Friday, January 15-19, 2018, at St. Francis Convent, Little Falls. Father Pat McCloskey, OFM, presenter, explains that saints are people moving toward the freedom that God intended. Thomas of Celano said that St. Francis of Assisi seemed to be “a man from another world.” His inner freedom explains that perception and encourages us to grow in that same freedom. Sin always presents itself as a shortcut to greater freedom but yields only a dead-end result. Father McCloskey has been a priest for 36 years and is the Franciscan editor of the St. Anthony Messenger magazine as well as other publications. He is an author of numerous books, including his most recent, Ask a Franciscan: Answers to Catholic Questions.
