 Bishop John Stowe, OFM Conv, of the Diocese of Lexington, KY., sees a parallel theme in the ministries of St. Francis of Assisi and Pope Francis with a focus on rebuilding and re-evangelizing the church.

His keynote presentation on the third day of the Q pointed to a combination of living the Gospel and being evangelizing missioners.

Both St. Francis and Pope Francis believed that "living the Gospel is more important than talking about it," he said, later adding:

"No Franciscan can be exempt from being a missioner."

His talk drew a standing ovation.
