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.
Habemus GeneralumThis May, in this special Spring of Miles Jesu, members from around the world gathered at our General House in Rome to elect our new government. The elections were presided over by Fr. Barry Fischer, CPPS, whose term as Commissary ended with the election of our new General Director. Archbishop Filipe Iannone, Viceregent for the Vicariate (chancery office) of Rome, was an official observer for the election of the General Director as well as the election of the Men’s Branch Director.
Mary: the Undoer of KnotsIt is a fact: Mary always brings us to Jesus. She is a woman of faith, a true believer. But we can ask: What was Mary’s faith like?
1. The first aspect of her faith is this: Mary’s faith unties the knot of sin (cf. Lumen Gentium, 56). What does that mean?
The Source of RenewalAs we know from personal experience, whatever generosity we bring to Christ’s Sacrifice on the altar – in offering ourselves and others – such we also take home with us in graces. The more we try to expand our hearts in praise and petition, thanksgiving and repentance, the more Our Lord fills these new “spaces” He finds in our hearts.
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
THE LAY APOSTLE: "Christ's redemptive work, while essentially concerned with the salvation of men, includes also the renewal of the whole temporal order. Hence the mission of the Church is not only to bring the message and grace of Christ to men but also to penetrate and perfect the temporal order with the spirit of the Gospel. In fulfilling this mission of the Church, the Christian laity exercise their apostolate both in the Church and in the world, in both the spiritual and the temporal orders. These orders, although distinct, are so connected in the singular plan of God that He Himself intends to raise up the whole world again in Christ and to make it a new creation, initially on earth and completely on the last day. In both orders the layman, being simultaneously a believer and a citizen, should be continuously led by the same Christian conscience.”
