Fr. Paul Schloemer, OFM Conv., is the Formation Director in San Antonio, Texas. In our latest episode of Franciscan Voice, Fr. Paul talks about vocation, formation, vows, and how the Conventual Franciscan Order is a global brotherhood. No matter where a Friar is from “a Friar is a Friar.” A Conventual Franciscan Friar is grounded in the first line of the Rule of St. Francis. The rule and life of these brothers is this: to live in obedience, in chastity, and without anything of their own, and to follow the teaching and the footprints of Our Lord Jesus Christ…The heart of the Rule is the Gospel.
