The liturgical season of Lent begins today. A meditation offered to the Church of Marseilles by Saint Eugene:

The purpose [of Lent] is especially to dispose souls to participate in the great mystery of the resurrection of the God-Man, by having them pass through the penitent and sorrowful path he himself has traced, by having them go up with him to Calvary and to spiritually go down with him into the grave, to be reborn with him to the new life he has gained by his victory over hell, sin and death. (…) In this way we will be like him, living, suffering and dying with him in this passing day of suffering and trial, resurrecting, triumphing and reigning with him in the eternal day of glory. (…)


January 25: Conversion of St. Paul


Beginning of the Aix-en-Provence Community

The request for authorization sent to the Capitular Vicars General of Aix is dated January 25th 1816. It was signed by five Missionaries of Provence: De Mazenod, Tempier, Icard, Mie and Deblieu. (The signature of Icard was later crossed off.)

Bicentennial of the Foundation  of the Missionary OMI

The bicentennial year of the foundation of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate is a very good occasion to revisit our origins and to find in them the inexhaustible inspiration to live today the charism given by God to Saint Eugene de Mazenod.

The present material wants to be a help for this journey. It offers a thought for meditation for each day of the year, beginning January 25, 2016 to January 25, 2017.


Eugene de Mazenod

Kemampuannya dalam pewartaan injil dan bakat kepemimpinannya dalam mengarahkan berbagai Misi merupakan tanda-tanda lahir hidup batin yang menjadikan Eugene de Mazenod sebagai penjala manusia.
