Provincial Post - St. Joseph: A Man’s Man PDF Print E-mail

.

My mother had a thing for Fr. Wilfrid Dufault. Wilfrid was our former Superior General and loomed large over the history of our province. In an unguarded moment, she declared him to be a “man’s man.” (To be honest, it was rather, “He’s a hunk of a man.” I’ve cleaned it up so as to prevent any untoward thoughts about my mother).

The account of Jesus birth in Matthew’s Gospel shows Joseph to be a man’s man. You know the situation. He is betrothed to Mary, which means that, although they were not living together, their union had been already blessed by God. He then discovers that she is with child, and he wonders how this can be. Instead of directing recriminations toward Mary, our man Joseph shows his true colors by choosing to divorce her quietly. How good is that? At a time when his indignation might justifiably have gotten the upper hand, his love and concern for Mary remain steady and decisive. He wants to spare her the shame and punishment that were likely coming to her. A man’s man, indeed.

FR. RON IS THE FIRST ASSUMPTIONIST TO GET THE VACCINE PDF Print E-mail

.

As part of the Pastoral Care of University Medical Center of El Paso, I have been offered to take the vaccine for Covid-19. This morning, together with so many medical personnel and staff of UMC and 3 of us priests and religious from the Diocese of El Paso, we received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines! The people who were receiving the vaccines are hopeful. I am also truly grateful for this opportunity.

PROVINCIAL LAY ASSUMPTIONISTS GATHER ON ZOOM PDF Print E-mail

.

Last month a virtual meeting was held for the Lay and Religious Assumptionists of the North American Province. This was a follow-up to the meeting of tandems held in August. However, this Zoom gathering took place on a broader scale. Thirty-three participants were in attendance from Canada, the United States and Mexico (with one participant from the Philippines.) The meeting was facilitated by Fr. Edward Shatov and Patricia Haggerty with Andrew Mercado providing tech support.

The focus of the meeting was discipleship. Fr. Benoit Griere, Superior General, sent a video address for the gathering. His main message was: "We must be passionate about the mission, passionate about the good news and passionate about the Kingdom of God." This was followed by a reflection from Fr. Dennis Gallagher, our Provincial who spoke of mission, as well: "Our mission as Christians, as Assumptionists and Lay Assumptionists, is to be ready to share our faith and His Word with others."

A discussion ensued on Fr. Dennis' thoughts and with suggested questions. The closing prayers for the meeting consisted of three significant prayers for the day,one in French, one in Spanish and one in English.
