Dear Stigmatine Lay Member,
Our Father General, Very Reverend Maurizio Baldessari, CSS, has sent a letter out to the entire Stigmatine family, including, of course, all of you!
Following Fr. General’s advice, let us all pray during the Second Centenary Year of the Stigmatine Family for its works, its missions – and even its failures!
We all serve a merciful God, and by the Wounds of His Divine Son we are all healed! [cf. Is 53:5, 1 P 2: 3, ff.]. Yet is in the Eucharist, too, that all the wounds of life are healed: “Say only the word and my soul will be healed!” [From the Liturgy]
God love you all. A blessed Thanksgiving and holiday time!
Sincerely yours in St. Gaspar Bertoni,
Fr. Joseph Henchey, CSS
Acting Spiritual Director
