HOLY THURSDAY – OUR BIRTHDAY!

by

Today, Holy Thursday 2010, is our 190th birthday!  It was on the night of Holy Thursday 1820, that our founder Marie Madeleine said yes to the call to be a Faithful Companion of Jesus, yes to the call to be there with Jesus at the foot of the cross, yes to the call to stay with him in his death, burial and resurrection and yes to the call to run to others with the new life of the Risen Christ.  Marie Madeleine was called to be with the crucified Jesus in his thirst and his suffering and also to be with all those who suffer, with all those who long for God, for love, for respect, with all those who long for purpose and meaning in life.  All FCJs since Marie Madeleine have been called to do the same and we right now are still being called…

I thank God for our beautiful Society: the Faithful Companions of Jesus, for our beautiful name and for our mission to serve others. I thank God that I am a part of this small and faithful group of companions…
