Walters exhibit showcases medieval missal used by St. Francis of Assisi at Archdiocese of Baltimore.
Not all the great Franciscan relics are in Assisi. This one is in our own backyard (for those of us on the East Coast). Well worth promoting throughout the Order in case people have a chance to get to Baltimore between now and May. (Sent to us by Justin Carisio)
