October Letter. The Sentinel

Oct 21, 2009 | Josep Abella Batlle

Rome. As it is becoming traditional, Fr. General, Josep Abella has also addressed this year the “October Letter” to the Congregation. It is a reflection that he wants to share with all the brothers on the occasion of the feast of our Father Founder, Saint Anthony Mary Claret, to be celebrated next October 24.

This year the October Letter has a very suggestive title THE SENTINEL, on the basis of a text of the prophet Ezekiel: “Son of man, I have placed you as a sentinel for the house of Israel. You will hear the word of my mouth and you will sound the alarm on my behalf” (Ez. 3.17). In the first part he expresses the condition of the sentinel-prophet, someone from the people who has been called by God to serve this same people with which God wants to maintain his Covenant alive. In the second part he makes some applications, guided by this title: “We ask the sentinel what he sees, what he hears, what he proclaims.
