Novena for Peace October 14th to 23rd, 2023

“Lord, make me the servant, the maker of your peace”

It is with these few words that the daily prayer of each pilgrim of Charity begins: the Prayer of Saint Francis.

The peace of God is first and foremost peace between men.

This peace is more than ever violated; we cannot obtain it without the help of God.

From Saturday October 14th, 2023 I offer you a novena to Mary by reciting ten Rosaries, asking her to intercede so that all men and women firmly repudiate violence as a solution to personal, collective, community or international problems. and for leaders and governments to avoid any risk of conflict by seeking, on the contrary, understanding between men, tolerance, mutual respect and reconciliation.

General Assembly 2022

The general assembly of the Pilgrims of Charity will be held on July 30 and 31, 2022 from 9 a.m. in Vézelay, Yonne



Vézelay is located 2h30 from Paris by train. This very beautiful site is called the "eternal hill", dominated by a large 11th century basilica, housing the relics of Saint Mary Magdalene.




At the foot of this basilica, about 2 km away, by a small path, you reach the Ermitage de la Cordelle. This is where the first Franciscan fraternity in France was founded in 1220.




This is the reason why we offer you this spiritual high place to immerse ourselves in the roots of our vocation.


We will meet again on Saturday morning, for a day devoted to reunions, sharing and recalling the different values of the pilgrims of charity.

On Sunday, our general assembly will take place, between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.


Our mission project in Haiti cannot materialize through a presence on site in the current pandemic context. However, we remain in contact with Brother Wilfried, Franciscan and Custos of Haiti. Through it, we are contributing to the reconstruction of a house for a family affected by the hurricane of 2016.

Christmas 2019

Pope Francis celebrated Christmas Mass on Tuesday evening December 24, 2019 by evoking “unconditional” love and

"Free" in the face of market logic, during its traditional Christmas homily in front of thousands of worshipers.


"Christmas reminds us that God continues to love everyone, even the worst"

"His love is unconditional" even if "you may have wrong ideas",


insisted the pope, stressing that it is "the gratuitousness" of this type of love that "spreads peace and joy".




Francis carries the baby Jesus during midnight mass at St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican on Tuesday.

Prayer of St Francis of Assisi

Dont forget the Prayer of St Francis of Assisi  between November 28th and Devcember 6th,2019

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy
O Divine Master, grant that I may
Not so much seek to be consoled as to console
To be understood, as to understand
To be loved, as to love
For it is in giving that we receive
And it's in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it's in dying that we are born to Eternal Life
