New Year 2019 - General Superior's Greetings

Rome, 1 January 2019

Once again, we meet on the edge of time: the old year goes away and a new one comes. Not everything in our lives happens at once, at the same time, immediately. We need a rhythm of events. Every year gives us this rhythm, which makes order in our life, purifies us and allows us to touch real life.

Letter of the Superior General for Christmas 2018

'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' Mt 16:16

We believe and confess that Jesus of Nazareth, born a Jew of a daughter of Israel at Bethlehem at the time of King Herod the Great and the emperor Caesar Augustus, a carpenter by trade, who died crucified in Jerusalem under the procurator Pontius Pilate during the reign of the emperor Tiberius,

Is the eternal Son of God made man.

He 'came from God', (Jn13:3) descended from heaven', (Jn 3:13, 6:33), and 'came in the flesh'.  (1 Jn 4:2). For 'the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father. . . and from his fullness have we all received, grace upon grace.' (Jn 1:14,16). Moved by the grace of the Holy Spirit and drawn by the Father, we believe in Jesus and confess:

'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' Mt 16:16

(Catechism of the Catholic Church,  423-424)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
