In the Spirt of St. Francis

This is a really neat story about a group of young Franciscan friars making a pilgrimage to a friary in Washington DC.
Here's a teaser.

They've been mistaken for Jedi-wannabes headed to a Star Wars convention. They've been investigated by police, approached by strangers, gawked at from cars and offered gifts of crumpled dollar bills and Little Debbie snacks.

After trekking along more than 300 miles of dusty Virginia country roads and suburban highways, six Franciscan friars reached Washington on Tuesday, having seen it all during an offbeat modern-day quest for God.

First seen at the Deacon's Bench, but the whole article is at the Washington Post.
