Got a cell phone? Franciscanize it!

The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity are offering a downloadable ring tone of their song "Peace and All Good".

The Franciscan Sisters wanted to accommodate young women’s rapidly increasing interest in downloading ring tones of songs they liked. “As consecrated women we are encouraged by our Church to make known the beauty and the truth of our lives through the marvels of technology.” says Sr. Julie Ann Sheahan, OSF, of the order's vocation team.

She notes that “Jesus, the Incarnate Word, left us an example of the importance of human communication in daily life. We hope our simple, beautiful “Called to be” ring tone may inspire young women to discover and discern their unique call from God.”

I am certainly all for anything that helps people discern their call. But I might chose a different tune like "Turn me off before Mass starts" or "Tithe, Tithe" or "Father Seraphim likes cookies". Those would be some good ring tones.

What about "Morning has Broken"? I'd love to see your face with that ring- Musings of your naughty brother.
