Franciscan Friars: Simple Walk from Roanoke to D.C. Has Quietly Profound Effects

One morning on the Metro, I happened on a story in The Washington Post about some Franciscan friars who embarked on a walk from Roanoke, Virginia to Washington, D.C.

Unlike many stories that I pass through quickly, this story held my interest until my stop at Foggy Bottom.

One of the things that struck me was the many people who turned to them for advice.  It is rather unusual to hear of this type of activity that the friars did. I am glad that they were able to reach so many hearts and minds on their journey.

It was a benefit to come across this article, and I wish the Friars well in their vocation.
