Brother François Marie Fontanié was born in France.

In 2015, he joined the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in New York City, where he leads a life of prayer, fraternity, service to the poor, and evangelization. He started drawing as soon as he was able to hold a pencil. When he became a friar, he drew this children’s book for his goddaughter. His art is an important part of his ministry. He was recently assigned to St. Pio Friary in Bradford, England.

“Brother François, please tell us about the Eucharist.”

When Brother François invites two children to join him in visiting Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, they learn all about the source and summit of our Catholic Faith.

In terms children can understand, Brother François explains that the Eucharist is :

  • a truth we’ll never completely understand
  • an endless gift of love
  • a way to say “thank you” to God
  • and, most importantly, that the Eucharist is Jesus

Written and illustrated to help children fall in love with the Eucharist, He Is With Us Always will become a treasured family favorite.
