Easter Message of the Superior General
Dearly Beloved, in this Special Year of Saint Joseph, on the solemn day of his feast, I send you my Wishes for Holy Easter. He, the patron of the universal Church, is also the special patron of our Congregation. We ask him to protect the whole world, to free it from the pandemic that reaps so many victims and leaves deep wounds and desolation in many people, and to guard over us all.
The rich who do not give alms are thieves of the poor.
