Seventeen committed candidates from three different parishes came together on November 4, 2023. Does it surprise anyone that our odds of having a warm and glorious day in Florida were highly probable? Praise Be To God; Associates gathered to revive, refresh, and renew our Covenant Promise.
During our day of Renewal, Father William Fickel SSS, spoke of the harvest. We focused on commitment to our Eucharistic vocation. We journey as companions strengthened by those relationships; we form a bond of community, the call of our Lord for a deeper union with Him for the salvation of souls through the good and bad seasons.
Father Bill and I experienced a joyful year, grateful for the harvest and sharing of the loving souls that give growth and great hope in the mission carried out through the Eucharistic work in our domestic church and parish families. These grace-formed Eucharistic communities glimmer with the same love and affection lived out by our patron, Saint Peter Julian Eymard. His mission is ours in Jesus Christ, and may it be as passionate.
While we can not be sure of the outcome for us and all those we encounter, as there is no certitude of salvation, only a certainty of His divine mercy, we feel confident that the final decision to accept the beating heart of Eucharistic Jesus rest in our belief and hope for others. We will reap what we sow; Christ will come, and the sickle shall pass.
