The Right Reverend Clifton Daniel (Bishop Dan) of the Diocese of PA speaks with Third Order Franciscans about being tertiaries and the Third Order.
LOVE YOUR ENEMIES
FROM THE "PRINCIPLES" OF THE THIRD ORDER:"Tertiaries endeavor to serve others in active work. We try to find expression for each of the three aims of the Order in our lives, and whenever possible actively help others who are engaged in similar work. The chief form of service which we have to offer is to reflect the love of Christ, who, in his beauty and power, is the inspiration and joy of our lives."
