In the land of Jesus. To love him more and follow him more closely

Ongoing formation regards the whole person in a unitive way. A first aspect regards the spiritual conversion by a constant return to the sources of Christian life and to the original spirit of the Order, realized in forms adapted to times and cultures. (Const 41,3)

Whom this course is for

The course is conceived for friars who, after about twenty years on the Franciscan path, have a sense of having reached midlife. The Holy Land becomes a place of meeting Jesus and, by means of him, ourselves. For a month and with eyes turned to Jesus, we invite you to make contact with your interiority, to continue to walk towards what is essential with the desire for an even deeper understanding of your own existence. The course is also open to all the friars responsible for formation.  


  • To make a personal rereading of one’s own story beginning from the pages of the Scriptures. To take another look at the common and personal images of our religious world.
