a very few months, we shall have a new saint, Gaetano Errico, our
beloved Founder. Although most of
us have a special Saint we feel drawn to, the idea of having a Saint so
intimately connected with our congregation is a wondrous idea.
He, who gave us our direction,
our mission and purpose is now our special advocate.
To you as well, our dear friends
and benefactors, he will be especially close.
The faithful in his life made his
vision possible and today it remains the same.
All we accomplish in service to
God's people is vitally helped to continue by your gracious prayers and
support for our work. In the
pages of this newsletter is a new prayer of intercession to St. Gaetano
which we soon hope to have printed for distribution.
It shall be my prayer for the
needs of our congregation, our vocations and our mission.
I pray you will always feel
confident that you have a special advocate in St. Gaetano Errico as
May the peace
and love of Christ fill your hearts,
Father John, M.SS.CC.
