  1. Rachael: H., UK

    Fall Survey: October 2016

    A very inspiring listen. St Francis and St Clare are such wonderful saints and have much to illuminate our lives today. It’s not always easy but very rewarding if we follow the teachings and practices that they themselves followed.

    Winter Survey: January 2017

    I listened to it in the car and found myself listening three times because there was so much to reflect on. Also as a Franciscan, there was much resonation in me.
