Nativity of John the Baptist

 
 

Christ is risen!

Dear brothers and sisters of Koinonia John the Baptist,

This year we celebrate the feast of the birth of the Precursor together with the fortieth anniversary of journeying together as a community.
In the Bible, forty is a number that expresses fulfilment and maturity. On this occasion my hope for each one of us is this: that the blessing contained in the name “John”, that “God is gracious”, is fully experienced in our lives and in those most precarious situations for which we have been waiting for a visit from on high.

Greeting you with affection, I urge you to remain united, with sentiments of gratitude for all the Lord has already done for us,

Fr. Giuseppe De Nardi
