Mission I Am the Living One 


Lets all have a pilgrimage of love and hope in our homes (families),
churches, hospitals, schools and religious communities.  Welcome !

     Original opening texte of the Mission I am the Living One from January 11, 1997.

     I am happy to speak to you today and to bring you this experience of the missionary cross that you Booklet cover page have accepted to welcome into your home.

     His Holiness John Paul II has been exhorting us for a number of years to promote a second evangelization in order to encourage a rediscovery of the person of the Risen Christ.

     The three years that preceded the grand jubilee of year two thousand, we placed the accent on this necessity. Here in Quebec, the necessity is felt as an emergency within the Church. The family is experiencing strong tremors that affect it in its fundamental values. How many couples and families are suffering at different levels and often are far from evangelical and ecclesial life. This initiative is about the visitation in homes of a missionary crucifix under the name of "I AM THE LIVING ONE". A leaflet of accompaniment helps persons to experience the Risen Christ. As an accompaniment, it will offer you different texts in order to help you encounter the Risen One.

 Certain questions, certain meditative texts, illustrated by the Word of God, will give you the opportunity to find God, to experience the presence of the Risen Christ who loves you and who wishes to meet you. And for you who venerate the Cross, we invite you now to familiarize yourselves with the little booklet entitled "I AM THE LIVING ONE".
