The words of Our Lord Jesus Christ to Saint Margaret of Cortona, the Franciscan Magdalene:"Know that just as people criticized My miracles and My teaching, so they will dare to criticize the Friars Minor, your Fathers. But just as, despite the accusations of My critics, I did not give up My good works, so let the Friars in turn not cease performing the good works that they do in me, on account of those who slander them.""My enemies have increased in number in order to tempt My people. The Friars Minor, to whom I have given the nets of My preaching, are the shields of souls."Source: The Revelations of Margaret of Cortona the Franciscan Magdaleneby: Most Rev.

We are denounced from pulpits; we are called Lutherans by a certain Diocese, and we are avoided like the Plague. May the Most Holy Trinity be blessed and honored in all of this, and may we all be given a true spirit of penitence through the intercession of this glorious Saint to whom Our Lord said: "Those who come to you in my name will receive a special grace."
