Everyone knows that the Franciscan habit is a powerful symbol. While everyone may not know exactly what it is, it universally speaks to religion, peace, and approachability. That’s not a bad thing to be recognized as when meeting people on the street, especially when someone is looking for prayer or guidance.
What everyone does not necessarily know is that wearing a habit can be a rather difficult task. With long sleeves, loose fabric, and hanging rope, there are innumerable ways to embarrass oneself, break things, and even end up tripping on the floor.
By no means an exhaustive list, my newest video hopes to capture a taste of the things that we face every day in our habits, and the many mistakes that I have made in such a short time. Hope you enjoy!
