FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL
THE WAY FORWARD IN CHRIST
OUR CALL AND MISSION – 3
October 27, 2013
At the eternal city
I have completed my trilogy of pilgrimages. The first was to Santiago de Compostela, going along the Camino de Santiago in Spain. The second was to Lourdes in France. The third is to the Holy See in Vatican State (Italy).
In the first, God confirmed our call to be servant leaders, whom He would use to proclaim the gospel to the ends of the earth. This was especially as I reached Finisterre, what was considered the end of the earth at that time. In the second, I reconsecrated our community to the Blessed Virgin Mary, as we continue to go forth into spiritual war under her banner. In the third, I had the audience with Peter (Pope Francis), the head of our Roman Catholic Church. He affirmed our call to evangelization founded on family renewal. We do this as a servant to the Church.
We are ending the Year of Faith in November. I pray that the foundation for living out a true faith has been established. For us faith is not just an intellectual assent to Jesus as Savior and Lord, but looking to a faith that works wonders! And why not. What we do is divine work, commissioned by Jesus himself, empowered by the Holy Spirit.
We look not to ourselves but to the God who has called us. We rely not on our own strength but on the awesome power and might of God Almighty. We just present ourselves as instruments for His use.
God has confirmed our call. We are to do rapid, massive and worldwide evangelization. If we respond with giving our all, we will experience wonders in our work. God bless you all.
