'Francis effect' evident at international meeting of Marianist Lay Communities

 | 

I recently observed the global "Francis effect" at the 6th International Meeting of Marianist Lay Communities in Lima, Peru. The theme of our meeting, "Faith of the Heart in the Heart of the World," was chosen before Pope Benedict XVI called for a Year of Faith and before the election of our new pope. We had no idea that our theme would be so timely.
