3rd Missionary Journey
Fr. Givovanni Giampietro
Join our third missionary journey!
Come with us to San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, Miami and Lima.
The local missionary teams have done a wonderful preparatory work.
Many sleepless nights, many working holidays, many missed parties,
but lots of blessing, lots of grace and lots of good examples for
all of us.
The soil is ready, the sowers are ready. The seed is the Word of
The rain is the gift of the Spirit.
Come with us either physically, or spiritually.
Send us forth on the wings of your prayer.
Keep us in the warmth of your hearts.
If it is true that behind a successful man, there is always a woman
It is certainly much truer that behind a successful missionary journey,
there is always a warm praying community.
The Acts of Apostles records many touching examples of the link
between the missionaries and the community of brethren.
An example is Acts 20.36-37,21.6-7:
When Paul finished, he knelt down with them and prayed. They were
all crying as they hugged him and kissed him goodbye.
When we reached Tyre, we met the local brethren and stayed with
them a week. But when our time with them was over, we left and went
on the way. All of them, together with their wives and children,
went with us out of the city to the beach, where we all knelt and
prayed. Then we said goodbye to one another, and we went on board
the ship while they went back home. We continued our voyage, sailing
from Tyre to Ptolemais.
