Zaccarian Apostolate of Prayer 2014
January 2014: “Let us look, among others, at St. Francis whose feast day we are celebrating, “so that we may not loathe imitating that which we delight in celebrating.” In him, in fact, as if in a mirror, there shine the most splendid example of Christian patience, profound humility, and, above all, the most ardent charity.” (October Allocution)
- For Pope Francis, that with his with his friendly and thoughtful nearness to the poorest, the suffering, and those alienated from the Church, he may be an evermore shining example of Christ for the entire world, let us pray to the Lord.
February 2014: "In the meantime, my beloved, please make every effort to gladden my spirit so that on my arrival I may find that you [have attained] … a steady and holy fervor, nourished by life-giving water and enriched by new vigor." - Letter 5
- For the Barnabites present in the new Foundations of Mérida (Mexico) and Bangalore (India), that they spread with renewed fervor the newness of the Zaccarian charism and the liveliness of the Pauline spirit in those people so rich in faith, traditions, and piety, let us pray to the Lord.
The victory over Oneself should be written by me with deeds, not with ink.
That the Sons and Daughters of St. Paul, having always in mind the spirit of communion that animated the Second Vatican Council, may be able more and more to contribute to the dialogue between the Church and the world, we pray to the Lord.
