[Francis] suddenly rose up to give praise, as if his only glory was this:  hearing good things about the brothers.  He burst out from the depths of his heart:  "I give you thanks Lord, Sanctifier and Guide of the poor, you who have gladdened me with this report about the brothers!  Bless those brothers, I beg you, with a most generous blessing, and sanctify with a special gift all those who make their profession fragrant through good example!"

The Remembrance of the Desire of a Soul, Thomas of Celano


June 23, 2018 marked the 90th Birthday of our Brother Robert Hugh.  A celebration was held in conjunction with the weekly Open House at San Damiano Friary, complete with cake, gifts, and a display of photos from various times in Robert's life with us.

This was Robert's third major milestone in recent years, as he has also recently marked 50 years in vows as a Brother of SSF, and 60 years as a priest!

Felicitations Robert, and Deo Gratias!
