    This is beautiful. I am wondering if these are actual cards; if so are the cards going to be available for purchase, or are they an online image only?

      Hi Jan, the cards are not available as actual cards but, as per CIOFS, we all are welcome to download them and print them ourselves.

    Love the idea of keeping the RULE so conscious to us in this Anniversary year. Great idea, I have printed out enough for my fraternity. Thank you! Peace and All Good! Marguerite

    I am currently in formation at the Scrutiny level and approximately two to three years from being able to be professed, so my questions will seem to lack knowledge on the Rule.
    1. Do the reference to an “article” number on each card refer to the same Rule number? If not, what do the numbers refer to?
    2. Why do the cards for articles 4 and 5 have multiple cards for each number?
    3. When do you expect additional new cards to be provided or are the current 9 cards all that are planned to be provided?

    I am printing theses cards for our St. Anthony Fraternity, Albuquerque, NM and need to answer potential questions regarding article numbering.

    Thanks for the spiritually beautiful color graphics on all the cards. I plan to use the cards not only for celebrating the 40th Year Celebrating of the New Rule but in support of the ongoing discernment of my Secular Franciscan vocation.
