Celebrate Jubilee Year Like Martha, Mary

Fr. Leonard Kostka, C.PP.S.

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.

Jubilee Suggestions for Service Hours

Fr. Dennis Chriszt, C.PP.S.

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.

Bicentennial Prayer

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.

The Challenge of Mission for the C.PP.S.

Fr. Robert Schreiter, C.PP.S.

This presentation was given at a workshop for recently incorporated members July 11, 2005 in Rome. Among the three pillars of a Society of Apostolic Life (Mission, Community and Spirituality) Mission has a priority. It is mission that calls us together and sends us out for the sake of the Church and the world.

Short Term, Long Term, on Whose Terms?

Fr. Robert Schreiter, C.PP.S.

This article was a presentation given at the USCMA Annual Mission Conference, University of Notre Dame, October 1, 2006. This article seeks to explore the many sides of the question about the term or lenght of time that a person is sent on mission, particularly the theological and missiological implications of different lengths of service in mission.
