A Dominican went to a Mass, celebrated by Father Benedict, who is a Franciscan. Sounds like a joke. A Dominican, a Benedictine and a Franciscan walk into a bar...
Tonight I met a Franciscan of the Primitive Order. He celebrated Mass for the Bethany Community. Father Benedict is missioned to Lawrence, MA.
They are truly mendicants. They don't work; they beg. They beg for food and rides and whatever else they need. Father Benedict was a good preacher, too. His voice was melodious. I liked listening to his talk on Mary.
The Order is just starting out and doesn't have many vocations. Right now, they're in two Massachusetts' cities: Roxbury and Lawrence. Their Lawrence home is Holy Trinity Church.
May God use them well.
