“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD

“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

Welcome to Franciscus Meus.

I did not really have any big plans for traveling this year. But I believe God has opened a door that I cannot ignore. A couple of weeks ago an incredible opportunity presented itself. I met David Rapp of Water’s Edge Community Church and Discovery Venture Tours. He has arranged a debut Spirit Venture or ‘pilgrimage tour’ to Italy “CHASING FRANCIS: Assisi, Rome, and more.”

David has been taking groups of youngsters and adults all over the world for many years. He designed this tour after the current popular novel, “Chasing Francis” by Ian Morgan Cron.

The package consists of 7 nights in Assisi and 3 in Rome and will include tours, excursions, historic pilgrimage sites, prayer, Eucharist celebrations, engaging discussions over great Italian food and wine, and as you can well imagine there will be nonstop great photo opportunities.

This is an invitation for you to join us and hop on this Spirit Venture to Italy from April 11th through the 21st. We need more pilgrims. There are still a few openings. Unfortunately this is very short notice. You only have 9 days to sign up. David is hoping for a group of no more than 20. Go to and get all the information and the itinerary.

My blog on Chasing Francis is entitled Franciscus Meus, “My Francis,” and will include thoughts on Ian Cron’s book and interesting facts about Francis and eventually photos from the tour. Come ‘pilgrim’ with me. Click here to read all my Franciscus Meus posts.
