Like St. Francis, all CFR Friars are called to be "friars minor", that is, "lesser brothers". Some friars are called to live out this call more specifically as Religious Brothers, or more commonly known as “Lay Brothers".
The radical observance of the Holy Gospel is the goal of every lay brother and it is this reason that drives him to bring the presence of God and the good news of Christ to every situation and to everyone he meets on the streets, in the alleys, in the friary, on the bus, and everywhere else.
“Go sell all that you have and give the money to the poor and come follow me.” (Matthew 10)
