“We must lead men to act like human beings, first of all, and then like Christians, and, finally, we must help them to become saints.”
By Sebastian Łuszczki OMI
The formation workshop for superiors of Oblate scholasticates from all over the world has been going on for several days in Rome. It has been an excellent opportunity to get to know each other and exchange experiences. Ten formators are attending the session in Rome, and more than 30 Oblates participate online every day. Thus, creating a “hybrid community,” forming ourselves to better fulfill our mission for the Congregation and the Church.
Each day of the session begins with a prayer prepared by a different scholasticate. Personally, it has been a great experience: many cultures, traditions, and languages, yet United by the same Oblate charism – we are separated by distance, time zones, and different cultural backgrounds, but we share the same spirit of St. Eugene de Mazenod!
And all this is accomplished thanks to our animators, translators, and technical staff. On behalf of the Oblates online, thank you very much, brothers!
