MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS

FOR THE 2022 WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

At the time when the cold winds of war and oppression are blowing and when we frequently encounter signs of polarization, we as a Church have undertaken a synodal process: we sense the urgent need to journey together, cultivating the spirit of listening, participation and sharing. Together with all men and women of good will, we want to help build the human family, heal its wounds and guide it to a better future. On this 59th World Day of Prayer for Vocations, I would like to reflect with you on the broader meaning of “vocation” within the context of a synodal Church, a Church that listens to God and to the world.

On February 2, The Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, Fr. Herbie and Fr. Ronie attended the Archdiocesan celebration of the 26th Day of Consecrated Life. The activity started with the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet at the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary - Major Diocesan Seminary Church.

On January 28, Rev. Fr. Mike di Silva, a Filipino Rogationist Missionary from the St. Matthew Province of the Philippines, has bade the Community goodbye.

On January 31, the Community at the Anthonian Institute celebrated the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus. As the Rogationist tradition dictates, this is also a special day when the Congregation make memories of all the blessings the Lord has entrusted to the Congregation.

On January 23, Sunday, The Community left towards the Baltic Sea for a three (3) day respite after a long quarantine and self-isolation due to the covid infection.
