Signs of God N.6

Word of the Postulator

Pope Benedict XVI called on the entire Church to celebrate a « year of faith ». It was meant to be an opportunity to recommit ourselves to search for the truth: the truth about God and the truth about Man. It also meant bearing clear and courageous witness to our faith in Jesus Christ in the midst of our world and the men and women who surround us.

One basic criterion in demonstrating the holiness of a Servant of God is precisely that of showing how he practiced a life of virtue, especially the virtue of faith. We know that Fr. d’Alzon was a man of faith and that it was this beacon that enlightened his whole life, all his apostolic initiatives, his love of the Church, and his unconditional commitment to Jesus Christ.

In this issue of « Signs of God », and in the other issues of this coming year, we would like to underline this aspect of the holiness of Fr. Emmanuel d’Alzon: how he lived out his faith. In this regard, as for the other virtues, he is a model for us today. May the Pope’s call to deepen our faith lead us as well to imitate the faith of Fr. d’Alzon. For him faith was inseparable from truth, charity, and obedience.

Fr. Julio Navarro Román, A.A.
