THE SERVANT GENERAL
OUR THEME FOR 2020
BLESSED BY AARON
January 1, 2020
In this new year, we continue to look to our basic work, that
of family renewal and evangelization. We are families on mission
and have taken on the name given us by God, that of Missionary
Families of Christ.
Just like the shepherds at the birth of Jesus, we have gone
“in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant
lying in the manger.” (Lk 2:16). We found the Holy Family.
And we in turn have been brought into the family of God. “But
when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born
of a woman, born under the law, to ransom those under the
law, so that we might receive adoption.” (Gal 4:4-5).
We are God’s children, as “God sent the spirit
of his Son into our hearts, crying out, ‘Abba, Father!’”
(Gal 4:6). We are families of Christ.
But we are also missionary families. Just like the shepherds,
we have gone forth and proclaimed the good news of salvation
in Jesus. “When they saw this, they made known the message
that had been told them about this child.” (Lk 2:17).
We meet Jesus, we live Jesus, and we share Jesus. We go forth
as holy warriors to make him known to the whole world. “So
shall your way be known upon the earth, your victory among
all nations.” (Ps 67:3).
As we enter into this new year, we look to being built on
the Rock that is Christ, as we live out who we are and what
we have been called to do, as Missionary Families of Christ.
We continue to ask for God’s anointing, and receive
the Aaronic blessing upon us all.
Lord bless you and keep you!
The Lord let his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you!
The Lord look upon you kindly and give you peace!”
Now let us go forth to make Jesus known throughout the world.
“May God bless us still; that the ends of the earth
may revere him.” (Ps 67:8).
