A few days ago, we received a suggestion from Sherrill Guimond to check out the 12 weeks of Franciscan Peace created by Carolyn D. Townes, OFS, National JPIC Animator, St. Katharine Drexel Region. So, we did and we have included it and other links to inspiring JPIC animation from Carolyn in our Formation section.
What really struck us was the definition of JPIC Animator on Carolyn's Animate Peace Blog. When we consider that an animator in the Franciscan sense gives life to the charism of Saint Francis who lived and breathed the Gospel, in the footsteps of Jesus, inciting Gospel-inspired action by his example, there is no doubt that we, as Franciscans are called to give life to the issues of JPIC and by God's grace, encourage right action. For Carolyn, that means starting by cultivating peace within. And for you?
When you use Carolyn's 12 weeks of Franciscan Peace individually or in fraternity, please let us know how you get on by using the Contact page or via email. We will include feedback on Spotlight and let Carolyn know too.
Animate for Peace, for JPIC...

Our fraternity, John XXIII, has decided to use this document for the monthly JPIC portion of our fraternity meetings. We'll keep it to about 10 min. each month.
