WHO IS SAINT EUGENE? THE FATHER AND FOUNDER WHO CALLS US TO LIVE AS A FAMILY UNITED BY HIS MEMORY

Posted  by franksantucci

Father Fabre’s first circular letter to the Oblates after the General Chapter which elected him to be Eugene’s successor contains the invitation:

Let us be united in spirit and in heart

and we will be strong for doing what is good;

let us be united in the memory of a Father

forever beloved”

After we celebrated the 200th anniversary of the foundation of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate in 2016, these words are as pertinent as ever for us. If we allow the presence and spirit of Eugene to be our source of strength and unity, then surely our bonds of charity and our missionary zeal will have no boundaries.
