We want to present our life as a viable option for them. Personal invitation is always best; however, we became convinced that real conversations can begin by using the language of images and music.

The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity celebrate Peace by featuring Beth Nielsen Chapman’s “Dona Nobis Pacem” as October’s “Song of the Month” at their ‘Franciscanized World’ page: http://www.fscc-calledtobe.org
Chapman developed her love of great song-writing through Gershwin and Cole Porter, Joni Mitchell, the Beatles, Motown, Ella, and many more, releasing seven albums of her own. She’s authored and co-authored hits for artists such as Faith Hill (“This Kiss”).
In the fall of 2004, Chapman astonished fans with "Hymns", a collection of centuries-old Latin liturgical pieces, one her most popular releases to date. According to Chapman, “I was raised in a Catholic family and the beautiful melodies on CD Hymns, sung mostly in Latin, were the “hit parade” for all of us born before Vatican II. When I searched for a collection of my favorite Latin hymns I couldn't find one anywhere. That's when I decided it might be a good idea to go deep into the roots of my own spiritual beginnings…”
“Franciscanized World” invites visitors see the world as Saints Francis and Clare did - realistically, compassionately, finding good and holy possibility in the substance and culture of everyday life.
Each month, specially selected songs and images are chosen for spiritual reflection from particular young women discerning their call in life.
