Creating a Legacy for the Future

Along the road of life, we make decisions that change the lives of people now or in the future. One significant opportunity we have is to designate what is to be done with the earthly goods that God has entrusted to us.

The wise words of Saint Francis of Assisi remind us that when we leave this earth, we take with us nothing that we have received, only what we have given during our lives. St. Francis tells us that a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice, and courage endures for eternity.

We invite you to consider extending the friendship you have shared with Franciscan missionaries as you plan for your own future . . . and beyond. It would make such a difference!

“Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received, only what you have given: a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice, and courage.”
