The AFFECTIONATE GREETINGS OF THE DOMINICAN FATHER GABRIELE DE JORDAN TO READERS THE ISLAND OF PATMOS A FEW DAYS FROM ITS CONSECRATION FOR PRIESTS

.

[…] I pray for each of you: God, in its invisible Trinitarian Missions, grant you a very strong light of grace to contemplate the mysteries contained in the sacred pages and embody it in environments where you live, in your little newspaper in the family, or for religious and priests who read our lines, also in your parishes and communities. The Lord has for each of us a larger project: written in our hearts, It is for us to just discover it and then put ourselves at your service.

Dear Readers and friends of The island of Patmos,

.

I expressed the desire to Father Ariel you can type a few days before the great gift of my priestly ordination.

.

I thank you for the affection you had in me, attention to my writings, deep prayer with which you have accompanied me up to this stage.

.

The 29 June 2019 at 11, in our Roman church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva, I will say definitely my "Here I am": with this word answer when I am called by the ordaining bishop.

.

My collaboration with the magazine It began providentially thanks to the availability and estimated that always the father and Jorge Ariel Facio Lynx have expressed.

.

I thank the Lord for these months writing, in various articles and in homiletics and are increasingly happy to continue writing to try to help every player, every boater web, and also the simply curious, to tap into those sacred truths taught by faith transmitted by the Church, alas, They seem to be a little’ left out today by the Catholic culture.

A few days ago I went at the patriarchal convent of San Domenico in Bologna, where there is also the splendid Ark, the tomb of the Holy Father Dominic de Guzman. I stopped more than a few moments to pray to ask the intercession of my loving Father Founder for my future priestly ministry.

.

At the same time I pray for each of you: God, in its invisible Trinitarian Missions, grant you a very strong light of grace to contemplate the mysteries contained in the sacred pages and embody it in environments where you live, in your little newspaper in the family, or for religious and priests who read, also in your parishes and communities. The Lord has for each of us a larger project: written in our hearts, It is for us to just discover it and then put ourselves at your service.

Patriarchal Monastery of San Domenico in Bologna: ark containing the remains of St. Domingo de Guzman

This project But it is not something that creates alienation from ourselves: rather it is instead what makes us fully ourselves. It makes us fully released in freedom; not by chance, of the necklace Editions The island of Patmos bears the motto "Truth will set you free». This phrase of St. John the Evangelist: "You know the truth and the truth will set you free [GV 8, 32] It is in fact enclosed our vocation and our apostolic mission.

A tal fine, as small jays on the wind of the Holy Spirit, It is up to each of us to remember those holy truths taught by the church and imitate the gestures of the saints who have gone before. Really then you will implement the message of Jesus, "I say this, that your joy may be full".

Similarly the Roman Pontiff Francis, Bishop of my diocese, that always asks all, I ask you to continue to pray for me: it to be, with God's help, a holy priest. A minister who, beyond the personal defects and limitations which always return, He knows how to be the one who gives the Holy, hence the etymology of the word priest means: one who offers to God for sacred things. So the one who knows how to give Jesus in the sacraments, in particular the Eucharist and Penance, giving all its truth affection deeper agapic.

.

Mary, our mother, support us and protect us always with that motherly love with which always and forever, He has kept the community of believers.

.

Dear Readers, friends and curious, thanks for everything.

In Christ the Lord and in San Domenico
