Blessed Luchesio Modestini ofs

... I am carrying my Lord Jesus Christ ...

When we are searching for the very first member of the Secular Franciscan Order it is difficult to choose between Lady Jacoba dei Settesoli from Rome and Blessed Luchesio Modestini. He was the first Secular Franciscan to be beatified and as such his story is put before us by the Church to inspire us to desire a deeper personal intergration and integrity of life that leads us to the perfection of charity – holiness. He was a young merchant who lived in the little town of Poggibonzi in Tuscany, Italy. He and his wife made a handsome couple and were greatly admired by many as being very successful.
