Who are these "Franciscan"-type folks?

Thanks to my Franciscan sister Cyndie for posting this:

Franciscans... Wordless witnesses of life...

These are faithful who, in the midst of their own community, demonstrate their capacity for understanding and acceptance, sharing of life and destiny, solidarity for what is noble and good. They radiate their faith in values and their hope in something that is not seen.

We stir questions in the hearts of those who see how we live:
Why are they like this?
Why do they live this way?
What or who is it that inspires them?

We are who God calls us to be: witnesses to the Gospel by action. Servants of the unworthy servants of God

I'm grateful this morning! We were given the date for our permanent profession to the Order! October 22, 2011! Whoa...this is HAPPENING! Gonna be a long summer this year!
