Minister's Letter: Sister Helen Julian, Minister Provincial of the First Order Sisters, European Province.

Global SSF

An extravagant claim -especially when it is realised that this issue is concerned only with the First Order Brothers and makes only passing mention of First Order Sisters and none of the Clares or of the numerically much larger Third Order. But the ease of communication brought about by e-mail, and the fact that many Brothers have experience across the provinces, have made possible this snapshot of the Brothers' world - an expression of Francis' global ambition, and an echo of Christ's words, 'Go into all the world.....'
