These months of March, April, and May 2013 are truly a new springtime for Miles Jesu. With the recent approval of our revised constitutions we are now able to move forward to elect our next General Director, General Council, and other important positions. In early May we will hold a General Assembly in Rome for this purpose. Please remember this intention in your prayers.
As a preliminary to the General Assembly a large number of members will be making perpetual or temporary vows. During the work on the revision of the constitutions, those who were preparing to make deeper commitments in our Faith Family waited with faith and patience. Now, with the new constitutions in place and a very important meeting with elections on the horizon, those who had been preparing for vows will have the opportunity to make them. In the coming weeks we will be bringing you photos and testimonies of ceremonies from all over the world, on four continents, of young people generously deepening their dedication to, and union with, Our Lord. We hope you will visit this site often this spring and join us in the joy and thanksgiving we feel at this new springtime!
Helping Each Other Reach the HeightsOn Friday, April 19, 2013, Pablo Carmona was surrounded by many longtime friends and members of Miles Jesu in the Phoenix area to celebrate the joyous occasion of the profession of his perpetual vows.
"Do You Love Me?"Over the weekend of April 13-14, 2013, a total of seven members made vows; some perpetual and some temporary (for five years) which are made before one is allowed to make perpetual profession. The main event of the weekend was on Sunday at noon when Nataliya Shchehel, Zoriana Dnistrianska, and Olha Semeruk made their final vows.
"I Am Beyond 'Happy'"On Easter Saturday, April 6, 2013, Miles Jesu had the joy of welcoming four more members to perpetual vows. This time it was four Nigerian members, two men and two women: Francisca Ndommadu, Justina Obum, Josef Igboekwene, and Thomas Abonyi.
"I Am All Yours, Jesus"It was hot in the chapel here in Sirsi, India, during the final profession ceremony of Ronald Saldanha. Quite a few of us were momentarily distracted as we watched and wondered how far the drooping candles on the altar would bend over before spilling wax on the altar. The sacristan came in the nick of time.
Joy in the Universal Church, and Joy at HomeThe first profession this spring was that of Miss Geraldine Maldonado, born in Puerto Rico and currently directress of Miles Jesu’s ladies’ Rome community. T
Good News!A long time has passed since my last post on the web site. My silence, however, doesn’t mean nothing was happening!
A Special Time, A Special CallThis fall the Church began a special year of grace, the “Year of Faith,” which began on October 11, 2012 (50th anniversary of the opening of Vatican II) and will conclude on the Feast of Christ the King, November 24, 2013.
Miles Jesu participates in the Church’s mission principally through the new evangelization: led by the spirit of the Gospel for the sanctification of the world from within as leaven. Our goal is to provide a specific means for the laity to recognize and live out the call to become saints, not only by work but by family and social commitment, and to help others become saints. This calls for leaders in seeking the Kingdom of God by engaging in temporal affairs and by ordering them according to the plan of God.
