Fr. Jean Rolex, C.M. writes:

“…at the beginning of the year, the Congregation of the Mission, which goes on pilgrimage in the world serving the poor, sets goals and proposals that keep it motivated, creative, enthusiastic and strengthened. This reflection summarizes and explains the most important challenges that we understand the Congregation must face and overcome in order to advance and improve its future…

The first challenge is to “revitalise our Vincentian identity“, that is to say, to give life to our spirituality, our way of life and our ministries…

The second challenge is the need to rediscover the beauty of mission and its importance in the life of the Church and of the “Little Company“…

A third challenge for the Congregation is to recover the beauty of our vocation in the face of a culture that is often controlled by the external, the immediate, the visible, the quick, the superficial, the provisional.”
