Feast of Our Lady of Angels

Portiuncula

Yesterday, August 2, was the feast of Our Lady of Angels of Portiuncula. What is that? How do you even say Portiuncula? Read more on this important day for Franciscans and listen to Fr. Suresh's reflection. 

Portiuncula means "little portion" and refers to the small chapel which served as St. Francis's home base for his ministry. The chapel is preserved in the Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels in Assisi.
