Novena to Jesus Way Truth Life during Pilgrimage: Leads to the Feast Day!

It turns out that our pilgrimge "road" takes us to the Feast of Jesus Way, Truth and Life. Sr Anne Joan will lead us in the novena as we travel the roads of early Paulines and saints and follow in their footsteps as they traced out the life of Christ - our very calling. Feast of Jesus Divine Master and Shepherd, Way, Truth and Life: October 30, 2010

Getting closer to the Pilgrimage

There is still one month left for you to join us on Pilgrimage to Italy. The Alberione Film Crew is also joining us. See the movie trailer on this page. This statue of St Francis waits for us in a field in Assisi. Assisi has been a deep part of Italian culture since the time Francis joyfully sang in the streets even as he begged for food and lived the life of a poor one of God. Blessed Alberione is not contrasted to Francis. He realized that the gospel is preached and when necessary we use words. The first book people read, Blessed Alberione reminded us, is the book of our life. When we visit the birthplaces of these two heroes of the church our own hearts will reflect the light they put on a lampstand for all to see.

Very Rev. Robert Hospodar joining us on Pilgrimage!

Very Rev Robert Hospodar, JCL

Fr. Hospodar is the Chancellor of the Eparchy of Passaic, NJ for the Byzantine-Ruthenian Catholic Church and Pastor of St Mary’s Byzantine Catholic Church in the Lower Eastside of New York City. He is a long-time patron of our Pauline Book & Media Center in Manhattan and a friend of the Daughters of St Paul community. He recently has inquired into the Institute of Jesus the Priest, one of the ten institutes founded by Blessed James Alberione, so this pilgrimage is a chance for him to understand and learn about the Pauline life, charism and mission in greater depth. He is a canon lawyer, historian, sports fanatic and reads about jurisprudence in Italian for fun.
