FOUNDER

custodia_nero_2

The Franciscan friars of the Custody of the Holy Land are a religious brotherhood who have been called by God from every corner of the world for a special mission: to watch over the places of the Redemption. They belong to a religious order of the Catholic Church, the Order of Friars Minor, known as the Franciscans. Their founder, St. Francis of Assisi, went to the Middle East at the beginning of the 13th century to “touch” the places which, still today, offer an irreplaceable testimony to God’s revelation and his love for mankind.
