This is one of two 8 x 10" portraits of two Friars at the St. Francis Inn in Philadelphia. This is Brother Xavier. The St. Francis Inn is an amazing place with an amazing ministry serving the porrest of the poor in urban Philadelphia (Kensington neighborhood). If you would like to learn more about their ministry you may view a film made by Gerry Straub, "Room at the Inn" (see link).
My 2nd portrait of Friar Bill is being created.
