He had a clear grasp of his own nothingness, while concurrently he experienced in the Eucharist "vobiscum sum usque ad consummationen saeculi" ("I am with you always", Mt 28:20), and that he could count on the Host, on Jesus, for light, nourishment, consolation and victory over evil.
Projecting himself mentally into the future he felt that in the new century generous people would experience what he was feeling; and that teamed up into an organization they could bring about what Toniolo kept on repeating: "Unite; if
the enemy finds us alone he will defeat us one by one." -- Abundantes Divitiae Gratiae Suae, p. 39: 16-17.
Join Sr Anne Joan and Sr Julia Mary as they lead you in the novena to St Paul.
The novena begins today in preparation for the Feast of St Paul on June 30th.
If you have the larger Pauline prayer book the novena is found there.
If you have the Pauline Cooperator Companion you can use the prayer to St Paul and choose a Pauline reading for each day. Visit http://gospellives.blogspot.com for a reflection on Paul's letter for the month of June.
Novena intention: Your intentions and the intention for the Mission Team and Pauline Evangelization today.
