Missionary

ON THE STREETS OF THE WORLD

“Go into the world and announce the Good News.” (Mk 16:15)
The word that Jesus gave to his first disciples, continues to resound in our hearts today. This mandate pushes us to live a broad missionary dimension, turned toward the whole world, but at the same time giving particular attention to each person we meet. 
Our duty to evangelize is a treasure from the witness and teaching of Father Luigi Faccenda, our founder. His gaze of faith and attention to each person, inspired by Saint Maximilian Kolbe, continues to be an important concern for all of us. Our marian-missionary charism carries us towards others into diverse environments, aware that we announce and at the same time receive the Lord. Our charism is actualized in various ways, according to where we are inserted.
We put ourselves at the service of the local and universal Church. As missionaries, we are available to cross the borders of our countries to go wherever the Lord sends us through obedience, aware that every particular person, place, and culture has their beauty and richness. 

 

 

Close-up

There’s a prayer I pray daily with a line in it that took me a long time to begin to understand: Passion of Christ, my comfort be. My logic was that the passion of the Lord was a sad event where Jesus was crushed because of my sins. I didn’t see the comfort in knowing that I was responsible for his suffering. Perhaps some people think that way about today’s memorial: Our Lady of Sorrows. After all, it’s the story of a Mother that suffered her entire motherhood in deep ways. Yet, it brings solace to many.
