FATHER FRANCIS MAPLEI have known Father Francis Maple for a number of years. He is a Capuchin Franciscan monk who joined the priesthood more than 50 years ago.
Father Francis has sung in public over the years (and still does) in malls, shopping centres and at his own concerts and has raised over £1m for charity. He has also written several books (sermons, cooking recipes, jokes), and has contributed (and still does) to many newspaper columns and Catholic newspapers and magazines. He spends a lot of time travelling throughout the UK leading Missions in various Catholic churches. Father Francis contributes articles and sermons from time to time to my Blog here as well as to the Community of Catholic Bloggers website.
He also publishes a Daily Homily HERE.
I have chosen today a song by Father Francis which reminds us all of our vocation to spread God's Word to everyone.
