Word from the Postulator

A total gift of self to God! What justifies the presence of this theme when treating the cause of Fr. d’Alzon’s beatification? During the meeting of the International Secretariat for the Postulation, held in Rome from May 17-19, 2016, the first of the proposed objectives was to know and make known the Servant of God. And one of the concrete means identified to achieve this goal consisted in spreading the thought and teachings found in his writings. This brings us back to the conviction that Venerable Fr. Emmanuel d’Alzon is a sign of holiness for us, and that he continues to speak to us still today as a man of faith, and to teach us by his personal witness and by his multifaceted apostolic action.

So we are speaking here of an important aspect of the Christian life and the consecrated life since it touches upon the quality and depth of our commitment to follow Christ. Fr. d’Alzon is raising the question, therefore, of the meaning of our total gift to Christ in our consecration to the religious life, a question that is also shared by all Christians by virtue of their baptism. We thought it would make sense in this issue to recall what he says to us about the profound meaning of the total gift of self to God, understood as an ongoing process of the experience of the Christian life and of the consecrated life.

Rev. Julio Navarro Román, A.A.
