Live the Mission. Be the Mission. Burkina Faso
“Christ’s resurrection is not an event of the past; it contains a vital power which has permeated this world. Where all seems to be dead, signs of the resurrection suddenly spring up. It is an irresistible force. On razed land life breaks through, stubbornly yet invincibly. Each day in our world beauty is born anew, it rises transformed through the storms of history.”
(Evangelii Gaudium, 276)
22 October • Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso
On World Mission Day, the Pallottine Fathers & Brothers opened a new mission in the capital city of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. If, as our holy Founder says, it is love that brings Jesus to wherever there is want and need, then may this infectious love revitalize the faith.
Together with the first two Polish missionaries- Fr.Stanisław Filipek SAC and Fr. Dariusz Sala SAC- may all grow in the graces of courage, wisdom, and strength; ever proclaiming the Gospel with a revitalized fervor!
Pallottine Missionary Prayer:
O, Queen of Apostles, beseech the Lord of the Harvest, to send laborers into His vineyard, and to have mercy on his people.
