Dear brothers and sisters,

On this solemn day, my prayer and my wish is that each one of us can grow in our awareness of the new name that we have received from the Lord: John the Baptist. This name determines our life, according to the koinonia style which the Lord entrusted to our beloved Founder and to the brothers and sisters that have planted themselves around him in our community’s 44 years.

May the measurement of success of our mission remain the same as John the Baptist: to recognise and proclaim the presence of the Messiah in our midst, and to have the courage to speak up when it is absent, always remaining faithful friends of the Bridegroom and of the brothers and sisters that He has given us!

Best wishes and Happy Feast Day!

Fr. Giuseppe
