Pope Francis sends a message to mark the 57th World Day of Prayer for Vocations, celebrated on 3 May.
Pope Francis begins his message by recalling a letter he wrote last year in which he chose four key words – pain, gratitude, encouragement, and praise – as a way of “thanking priests and supporting their ministry”.
At the Angelus on Sunday, Pope Francis invited all Christians to join together in praying the Our Father as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Pope Francis on Sunday called for all Christians to respond to the coronavirus pandemic “with the universality of prayer, of compassion, of tenderness”, adding, “Let us remain united. Let us make our closeness felt toward those persons who are the most lonely and tried”.
For the first time in its eighty-year history, the North American Province (NAP) of the Comboni Missionaries has elected an African as its leader. Father Ruffino Ezama, originally from Arua, Uganda, began his three-year term as provincial superior in January 2020.
On a bright, cool January afternoon, the Comboni Mission Center chapel filled with the gentle murmur of friendly voices praying in solidarity for Father Ruffino Ezama as he began his term of office. The special Mass gathered friends and supporters to thank outgoing Provincial Father John Converset for his years of service, and to pray for Father Ruffino as he takes on this new challenge.
