The Franciscan Vision encompasses a realm beyond the material. It is in the "inner level of being" where true life if found.
Thus the Villa seeks to provide the time and the place for each to visit this "inner level of being".
As Francis of Assisi struggled to become what God called him to be; we too, seek and struggle to respond to God's call in our lives.
The Franciscan seeks to bring the Gospel of Jesus' love to all humankind by embracing all; seeking to help those who cannot help themselves; offering hope to the downtrodden in life; witnessing Gospel without preaching it; being themselves humble enough to accept the many "good gifts" along with life's difficulties; to reach beyond all to be more loving, forgiving, and self-sacrificing.
