Editorial - September 2016 - Nº 412
Theme of the year 2016-2017:
"Blessed are the merciful" (Mt 5:7)
Yes, happy are you all over the world because the beatitude of mercy is yours! Yes, you can be happy, wherever you are in your life and in your Rosary team because God has mercy for those who turn to Him!
If you are in pain, and know difficulty or failure, believe that the Lord of mercy can change your mourning into joy. Because God does not convict or condemn since He is Love and He has mercy! Everyone can lock himself in his difficulties, contradictions or misery. Man can condemn another man, but God does not do so; He is not like us. Listen carefully: "God so loved the world that He sent His Son not to condemn the world but to save it" (Jn 3: 16)
If your team is struggling to meet or to remain dynamic and missionary, pray earnestly that the Holy Spirit, Father of the poor comes to your assistance and help you make a new start, with this invitation to happiness! By his mercy, the Lord dispels all mists for He is the Sun of righteousness!
As we begin with this invitation to happiness, Christ allows everyone to experience true hope. May the Lord bless this year through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy, Our Lady of the Visitation!
She is the one who welcomes everybody in our homes!
