Dear Volunteers of God:
Receive a fraternal greeting, the same that I kindly request you to extend to all your family members.
First of all, I would like to express my gratitude to the Oblates for the designation as Coordinator of the Central Team of Volunteers of God, a position that I have received with great joy and humility, but above all, conscious of the great responsibility that this designation implies.
I wanted to share with you that I am leaving this beautiful work as a flower at the feet of Mary, so that she may be the one to direct the continuity of this work initiated by Father Parent, our dear Oblates, by Mrs. France Robitaille and by the commitment of each one of you.
I would also like to invite you to continue our daily endeavors to live the word of Good and the 5 attitudes of life, which is a certain way to reach happiness, and in this daily effort, I also invite you to participate in the activities proposed by the central team of Volunteers of God in order to continue deepening our faith and reflections on the spirituality of the Oblates and now of this associated group.
Finally, I would like to end by recalling the beautiful words of our beloved Jesus, who affirms that we are "the salt of the earth and the light of the world", we do not seem, but we are that seasoning that the world requires to be and to taste better. Let us live with joy this mission that Christ has placed in each of our hearts to follow him with love and unconditional devotion as our mother Mary.
May the Lord Jesus, make his blessings reach each one of us greatly.
