After a task force in 2001, the planning phase in 2002 & 2003, a pilot project in 2004, editing from 2005 to 2009, it was completed and published in 2013.

Regular use of Franciscan Morning & Evening Praise will offer the brothers and sisters of St. Francis a wide selection of readings from foundational Franciscan writings as well as Clarian and Bonaventurian sources. Sources include:

Nourishes my prayer

I was introduced to this prayer book the first time I stayed at the hermitages of the Franciscan sisters of Philadelphia. It is very well compiled and steeped deeply in the Franciscan tradition. I specially like how the Psalter reflects the themes of conversion of heart, poverty, contemplation, and the minority. While I'm not a fan of the "Psalms Anew" translation it does shift my brain into a different place to indeed hear the songs anew! :-) Just this week I brought a fellow priest to the hermitages and he too was touched by this prayer book. I'm sure that the future additions will have a stronger copy editing team that will find in correct some of the typos. :-)
