Scalabrinian Year 2021-2022

In our Province, the Provincial Administration, in collaboration with the Vice Postulator and his committee, has decided to begin the Scalabrini Year from November 9, 2021, to November 9, 2022. It is a moment of Grace in our history to celebrate this Scalabrinian Year with a joyful and grateful spirit.

Let us continue sharing our spirituality, vision and mission in our Center of Study, Ecclesial organisms, Mass Media, pastoral positions, missions and formation houses with enthusiasm, faith and trust in the Divine Providence.

Scalabrinian Year
2021-2022

November 9, 2022 will mark the 25th anniversary of beatification of John Baptist Scalabrini.  We still remember with joy the day when the Church recognized him as an exemplary witness of Christian life. We remember the words with which John Paul II honored him: “Deeply in love with God and extraordinarily devoted to the Eucharist, he was able to transfer the contemplation of God and his mystery into an intense apostolic and missionary endeavor, making himself all things to all people in order to proclaim the Gospel.  This ardent passion of his for the Kingdom of God made him zealous in catechesis, pastoral activities and charitable work, especially towards those most in need.”

We take this occasion to intensify our prayers and initiatives so that Blessed John Baptist Scalabrini may be proclaimed a saint: a proclamation to give glory to God and to make his testimony as a missionary bishop shine with greater prominence, a voice for the voiceless, help for those in need, inspiration for those who are inclined to give their lives to Christ alongside migrants, refugees and seafarers.

Above all, it is an invitation to follow in his footsteps: “May I sanctify myself and sanctify all the souls entrusted to me.” This necessitates a commitment to making him known, to talk about him, to tell of his passion for migrants so that others may feel the same passion and intervene, at all levels, in the Church and in society, in favor of these uprooted and scattered brothers and sisters.  It is an appeal to ask his intercession for the mission that the Church has entrusted to our institutes, for the growth in faith of those with whom we share the Word, for the promotion of hospitality towards those who are far from their land and family.  

Let us embrace this opportunity to live a “Scalabrinian year” that will begin on Sunday, November 7, 2021, and will end on Wednesday, November 9, 2022.  The theme for the Scalabrinian year is: Making the world everyone’s homeland, a theme that fits in with the recent teaching of Pope Francis.  May the Holy Spirit, who guided Blesses Scalabrini along the many paths explored by his immensely charitable heart, guide us so that we may grow tirelessly in charity.
