THE SERVANT GENERAL
NEW YEAR MESSAGE
DO GREATER WORKS
I am particularly excited about our life and work in this
new year. Many aspects have intersected. The pope has called
for the New Evangelization, the Church has proclaimed the
Year of Faith, we are formally launching the Live Christ,

Christian perfection, enabled by the Eucharist. Share the
good news boldly and persistently.

that has just ended. Let us all do more.
