That I may never be separated from you! PDF Print E-mail

.Our jubilee year will be, I hope, a time of joy and renewal as much personal as communal. The Assumptionist can be defined as a man who has confidence in the grace of God, a man who surrenders totally to the Holy Spirit. With him we can realize much more than we could hope.

The beginning of the year is traditionally marked by an exchange of wishes, but also by resolutions that we make for a better life, for better health or for a better self-image. I leave it to everyone to make these decisions in hopes that they will lead one to greater holiness. But without my insisting, during this jubilee year, on an elementary truth: the more we open ourselves to sanctity, the more will the holiness of Fr. Emmanuel d’Alzon be clear and evident.

As for myself, I make my prayer the one said by the priest at the Eucharist: “That I may never be separated from you.” I love this, because in its simplicity, it says much about the desire that animates the heart of the believer: that one never be separated from the love of the one who gave everything for us. Often, I allow myself to broaden my prayer and to include in my petitions the totality of the Assumption religious: young and not so young, in formation or immersed in pastoral work. I wish that each of us becomes totally a companion of the Lord throughout this New Year. May we be profoundly rooted in the life of God. To become a saint, is to be in the presence of the Lord all the days of one’s life.

Christmas: The Remedy for a Disenchanted World PDF Print E-mail

Reflections from Fr. Dennis Gallagher, Provincial of the Assumptionists North American Province

Nativity

Some of you of a certain age may remember Peggy Lee, the songstress who belted out “Fever,” but also a rather sad song, entitled “Is that all there is?” In that second song, she relates a series of experiences in her life – watching her house burn down as a child, her first visit to the circus, and her first falling in love – and after each one she concludes, “Is that all there is, my friend, is that all there is?” If so, she says, "let’s keep on dancing and bring out the booze." It’s a song of disenchantment, of world-weariness. The world always comes up short in delivering the goods. It always leaves us wanting more. In the face of life’s failure to satisfy our heart’s desire, we’re left with bringing out the booze.

"He is born and is ready to begin a new life at your side. He will make but one demand of you; that your gaze pass from the crib to your own heart. Will you offer your heart to this little Child, to this your God who had become man to save you?"
- Venerable Emmanuel d'Alzon, Founder of the Augustinians of the Assumption
