Fr. Ergete Tesfaye p.m.e.  Missionary Month 2023

Journée Mondiale des Missions 2023 Le dimanche, Journée Mondiale des Missions est le jour où nous avons la chance et l'occasion de nous rassembler et de nous réjouir de notre unité. Chacun d'entre nous, en vertu de son baptême, a la possibilité de soutenir l'Église : Une Église qui donne la vie parmi les pauvres et les marginalisés. Le pape François, dans son message du dimanche mondial de cette année, réfléchit sur le thème “Des cœurs brûlants, des pieds en marche Sa réflexion est basée sur l'histoire des disciples qui rencontrent Jésus sur le chemin d'Emmaüs. Il nous invite à nous laisser illuminer par notre rencontre avec le Seigneur ressuscité et à nous laisser toucher par l'Esprit Saint. 

Il nous encourage à laisser nos cœurs brûler de la parole de Dieu, à voir Jésus dans l'Eucharistie et à attirer d'autres personnes pour marcher ensemble. Cette marche ensemble est une marche vers le chemin de la paix et du salut. Comme les disciples d'Emmaüs et d'autres disciples ont cheminé avec Jésus, nous sommes invités à faire de même. En nous écoutant profondément les uns les autres, nous sommes appelés à témoigner du Seigneur ressuscité dans nos familles, nos lieux de travail, notre entourage et nos paroisses. C'est pour cette raison que nous devons sortir de nos bâtiments d'église et rejoindre d'autres communautés. Approfondissons notre communion les uns avec les autres, avec notre créateur et sa création. Renouvelons notre engagement à être des missionnaires pour l'amour du Christ en nous engageant pleinement et consciemment, toujours prêts à annoncer la Bonne Nouvelle à notre monde brisé et à être des instruments de justice et de paix. joyeux dimanche des missions et un mois des missions fructueux.


Joel y Yessenia. Missionary Month 2023

Hello. I am Jessenia from El Salvador. I am Joel from Honduras. We are a missionary family doing our service in Brazil. In this month of mission, I want to share with you a message from Pope Francis, he said to young people to dream, to move, to look the life with new eyes, to go ahead and don’t be afraid. The Pope invited us to go to the encounter of our brothers and siters with hearts on fire and the feet on move. And with the feet on move, go to the excluded, ignored and marginalized by the society. And with hearts on fire listen our brothers and sisters that are suffering every day. May the Lord bless our lives and vocations.

Argentina Saavedra. Missionary Month 2023

Hello. Greetings from Peru. My name is Argentina Saavedra, I am from Philippines. I am serving at the high places of ¨Año Nuevo¨ in Comas, north of Lima. We are accompanying the children in that area through art workshops, using recycled materials. The missionary life for me is a beautiful path for encountering God in the reality where I am immersed. It is a way full of changes and challenges, but at the same time it is beautiful and enriching. It is really a reborn in the heart of the people that welcome us. The sculptures, costumes, flavors and in my case to learn the language. It is to learn from the people as they live the daily life. For to do that we need happiness, patience, openness, interest and specially a lot of love for the mission, for to continue answering this beautiful call. So, dear brothers and sisters, I encourage you to continue supporting all missionaries who are serving in different places of the world. You can help with your prayer or materially. Whatever, everybody has a place in the vineyard of the Lord. ¨Hearts on fire, feets on the move¨. Happy mision.

Charles Aimé. Missionary Month 2023

Mission Month is an opportunity to reflect on our vocation as baptized Christians, and as members of the Church. Pope Francis provides us with a very clear directive: Go out! Go out among the people! Go out and see what people are experiencing in their daily lives and bring them a message of Hope. The Gospel, as such, is the force that gives people the energy to live their lives better and more fully as human beings. There you have it! I hope that Mission Month will also be an opportunity for all of us to become messengers of hope to everyone we meet.

Je souhaite vous encourager à soutenir nos missionnaires et à prier pour qu'ils vivent une expérience missionnaire joyeuse.  Encore une fois, bon mois missionnaire à chacun d'entre vous.


Bishop Guido Charbonneau.

The theme for World Mission Sunday this year has been given by Pope Francis and is stated as follows: "Hearts on fire, feet on the move".  This topic is very interesting because it refers to the disciples of Emmaus who are discouraged after the death of Jesus. But Jesus began to walk with them, he listened to them, then he enlightened them with his word, and when they were enlightened, their hearts began to burn, to feel fervor, because they were truly returning to the Jesus they had known before, who had made their hearts happy. And when they recognized him present, alive, as resurrected, He left, but they returned to Jerusalem, they set out with their feet to be able to announce to their brothers and sisters this great joy that Christ has risen.
