  1. May I PLEASE have a copy of the Format Transitus of St. Francis ASAP. I am organizing it for we inactive elderly Secular Franciscans for the first time in years. We are inviting younger Catholics also so they can be encouraged to follow the Franciscan way. I need to make several copies . It would be an added bonus to have the song OH Francis by Father Joseph . I have donated to EWTN since the beginning.

    Please answer soon.
