ST-1 Sunday Talk Series
Between 1978 and 1989 in Still River and Bolton, Massachusetts, Brother Francis gave some of his most inspiring lectures to a large audience every Sunday after Mass. Usually the talks were a commentary on the scriptural readings for that Sunday’s Mass, but sometimes he would delve into other aspects about the liturgical year, Church history, or current events in the Church. At other times he would spontaneously go off on a fascinating tangent in response to an important question that had been raised. For many, who had been long accustomed to a paltry diet of milquetoast Catholicism, these robust and erudite presentations were like an adrenaline shot. They were apologetically Catholic, genuine, relaxed, and unforgettable. What is offered here is a cornucopia of Catholic wisdom that will remain with you for life.
