Franciscan ministry in Puerto Rico? It's a piece of cake. Br. Eddie Caro, OFM, explores the harmony of baked goods in an odyssey of the kitchen that has taken him to international destinations to hone his craft. "With sweets," Br. Eddie says, "There is always a possibility." And how sweet they are. 

When Br. Eddie discovered the harmony that goes into making baked goods and bread, it piqued his curiosity. "Pastries are made to bring people joy," he says. "So, they are for everyone." He uses desserts to forge connections with people in the community. His ministry is another example of ways men can bring their talents and interests into their ministry with the friars.
