Fr. Kostka is 100 years old and is still very involved in promoting devotion to the Blood of Christ. He offers us some reflections as we celebrate our Jubilee year.
As part of our celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, we're inviting member, Companions, Amici and friends of the community to do service projects in the tradition of St. Gaspar del Bufalo. We hope to reach and surpass our goal of 1,000 hours during this jubilee year.
Volume I of this two-volume work examines St. Gaspar's preaching on the devotion to the Precious Blood. Gaspar was renowned as one of the great preachers of his day; the Congregation he founded in 1815 had as its special aim the preaching of missions and retreats for the renewal of the Church.
This article talks about the theme of Jubilee from the writings of Maria Harris in her book "Proclaim Jubilee!"
God of Hope, you placed a dream in the heart of St. Gaspar that continues to unfold in the hearts of his Missionaires and Companions. This dream was inspired by your covenant of love, sealed in the Precious Blood of your Son for the life of the world. Make us witnesses after your own heart for the renewal of the Church and the transformation of the world. Bless our hearts and our homes as sacred spaces of hospitality that reverence the dignity of all life. Send us forth to be ambassadors for Christ in the ministry of reconciliation drawing all people near in your Blood.
