Yeah… I don’t think I’ve been to Mass at St. Francis. My experience going to Mass in the area has been St. Theresa’s, and I think Our Lady of the Snows… or Our Lady of Tahoe… or Our Lady of the Lake. lol… I don’t remember exactly… it’s been a couple of years. I’d like to hear what your experience was at St. Francis though if you think about it!
We have done the Mt. Tallac hike… we might do it again. My family goes every year but this will be my first time there in about 4 years, so I’m looking forward to it.
As it is, I usually drive an hour to get to my parish in Sacramento, so one more hour wouldn’t be too bad, but my family would probably be more comfortable if I went somewhere closer, since I’m not familiar with the area. I’m not too worried about it though.
Our Franciscans also are great homilists. They even talk about mortal sins, which is a bit rare :eek: in my limited experience. Why, I even heard one proclaim the Catholic Church as the “one true church,” and explain why Islam is a false religion. Amazing, huh?
That is pretty awesome! Solid Franciscans are really wonderful, especially because all too often Franciscans get such a reputation for being the eco-theology types… (sadly not undeservedly much of the time)… but St. Francis was so dedicated to the Church, which such a deep love of the Eucharist and Our Lady, etc.
Anyway, thank you again.
