Through this brief letter, I would like to inform you that the General Congregation has decided to convene, in the whole Order, a WEEK OF PRAYER FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE IN NICARAGUA AND CAMEROON, from July 23 to 30 of this year 2018.
It is quite true that in our world there are many difficult situations, marked by violence and the absence of justice and freedom. All of them need the prayer of the followers of the Prince of Peace, of him whose birth was greeted with the canticle of “Peace on Earth to the men that God loves”, and whose greeting in the Resurrection remains forever in the hearth of the Christian community: “Peace to you.”
That being true, so too is that, for our Order, in these months, the situations we live in Nicaragua and Cameroon are particularly harsh. In Cameroon, we have been living a very difficult situation in the Anglophone area of the country for more than two years, which has even meant the transfer of our Juniorate. In Nicaragua, it is very difficult to carry on every day our educational ministry, given the situation that is lived, with so many dead and so much tension, that affects all. In both countries, the Church and the Piarists are giving the best of themselves – not without suffering – to accompany the people they serve. We must pray for them.
For all of this, we summon all of you to a week of prayer for PEACE AND JUSTICE in Nicaragua and Cameroon. Trusting in the words of the Lord, who tells us that “what you will ask the Father in my name, he will grant you” (Jn 16, 23), we ask you that, in your personal prayer, in the community prayer and in the daily celebration of the Holy Mass you have especially present to these our Piarist Brothers who are living and working in conditions of special difficulty.
Receive a fraternal hug, with our best wishes for all.
