LETTERS FROM THE DESERT NO.1 PDF Print E-mail

.

By Fr. Peter Precourt, A.A.

I have now been here for two weeks and have begun to find my way around El Paso. Thank goodness for the app Waze which guides me through the maze of roads here in Southern Texas. This is no small city. It is very spread out. I would say that 95% of the buildings are only one story high and that includes most of the commercial property. The tall buildings are found in the city center and college campuses. The current population is estimated at around 682,669. The diocese of El Paso is estimated at 80% of the population. When it comes to weather, I would say “Toto this is not New England”. This a desert climate that is cool at night and warm during the day. The humidity is generally around 12%. The trees (which are few) have been planted and are watered daily by irrigation. It is quite dusty when the wind blows because there is not much vegetation to keep the soil down.

JUBILEE INTENTION FOR FEBRUARY PDF Print E-mail

.

"You too, dear consecrated brothers and sisters, you are simple men and women who caught sight of the treasure worth more than any worldly good... Why did you do this? Because you fell in love with Jesus, you saw everything in him and enraptured by his gaze, you left the rest behind. Religious life is this vision. It means seeing what really matters in life. It means welcoming the Lord’s gift with open arms, as Simeon did. This is what the eyes of consecrated men and women behold: the grace of God poured into their hands. The consecrated person is one who every day looks at himself or herself and says: “Everything is gift, all is grace”. Dear brothers and sisters, we did not deserve religious life; it is a gift of love that we have received." - Pope Francis, Homily for World Day for Consecrated Life

THAT I MAY NEVER BE SEPARATED FROM YOU PDF Print E-mail

.Our jubilee year will be, I hope, a time of joy and renewal as much personal as communal. The Assumptionist can be defined as a man who has confidence in the grace of God, a man who surrenders totally to the Holy Spirit. With him we can realize much more than we could hope.

The beginning of the year is traditionally marked by an exchange of wishes, but also by resolutions that we make for a better life, for better health or for a better self-image. I leave it to everyone to make these decisions in hopes that they will lead one to greater holiness. But without my insisting, during this jubilee year, on an elementary truth: the more we open ourselves to sanctity, the more will the holiness of Fr. Emmanuel d’Alzon be clear and evident.

As for myself, I make my prayer the one said by the priest at the Eucharist: “That I may never be separated from you.” I love this, because in its simplicity, it says much about the desire that animates the heart of the believer: that one never be separated from the love of the one who gave everything for us. Often, I allow myself to broaden my prayer and to include in my petitions the totality of the Assumption religious: young and not so young, in formation or immersed in pastoral work. I wish that each of us becomes totally a companion of the Lord throughout this New Year. May we be profoundly rooted in the life of God. To become a saint, is to be in the presence of the Lord all the days of one’s life.
