On the Feast of St. Eugene de Mazenod

Father Tarsisius Eko Saktio, OMI

 

Greetings in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Today is May 21.  As children of St. Eugenius de Mazenod, we commemorate the day of our Founder's death which is also coincided with the Church celebrating the Feast of Ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ to Heaven.  Happy feast day!

Let us give thanks for the living examples of our Founding Father who through his work and ministry has offered his entire life as Missionary Oblate and Priest.  We learn a great deal from our Founding Father who was diligent, patient, focused on his  mission in  proclaiming Christ and His Kingdom for the poor and abandoned people.  We also want to emulate the faith of our Founding Father who  until the end of his life continued to make Jesus Christ the Center of his life.

On this occasion, let us pray for this world to be freed from the corona virus epidemic. May those who died because of it receive eternal rest with our Father in heaven. We ask health and joy for those who are struggling for the good and safety of the sufferers of the plague. We pray for the growth of vocation for our Congregation.  Also we pray for ourselves that the missionary zeal continues to burn in us and our lives as children of St. Eugenius de Mazenod.  May we day by day be able to make him pleased.

"Go, make disciples of all nations and baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And know I am with you always until the end of time. "

Happy Feast Day.  LJC et MI.  Amen
