Special Respect For All Priests

St. Francis admonished the brothers faithfully to observe the holy Gospel and the rule to which they had bound themselves; to bear themselves reverently and devoutly towards the services of the Church and all ecclesiastical observances; to hear Mass and adore the Body of the Lord with devotion and worship. He also taught the brothers to honor with special respect all priests who were ministers of the sacraments; and wherever they might happen to meet a priest they should bow before him and kiss his hands.

Saint Francis of Assisi (the Play)

Fra Chris Dickson, FLA

Barefoot and clad in a ragged tunic, Fra Chris Dickson brings to Catholic Schools (K-12) the life of Saint Francis of Assisi, “the little poor man of Assisi,” whose holiness and faith, after 800 years, still continues to draw young men and women into a more perfect imitation of Christ.

As a Third Order Franciscan, Fra Chris has spent over thirty years studying the life of this beloved saint, drawing his inspiration from real life with the poor. “The unique thing about this one man play,” Fra Chris explains, “is that the actor is called not only to believe the words he speaks, as he might be in any dramatic portrayal, but he is called to live them as well. The audience is also called to examine their lives on a very profound level. No one leaves the experience unmoved.”

"God gave them his Spirit and the manner of speech necessary to satisfy the needs of the time so that their words penetrated into many hearts; especially into those of the young rather than of the old." ~ Saint Francis of Assisi (Legend of the Three Companions)
