At first glance, he thanked the community for the welcome and articulated his remarks in three areas: encouragement, advice and some information. He encouraged the fraternal atmosphere and the competence of our formators. He then exhorted us to imitate Christ according to our charism, to give importance to the intellectual and human formation in order to meet the missionary challenges of our time, to put our talents at the service of community, of the congregation in general, to love our congregation, to cultivate the spirit of sacrifice, to pool the goods, to be open and available for the universal mission.
Moreover, he criticized hypocrisy in all its forms, clericalism in these terms “we are primarily missionaries and not priests first. The missionary vocation is not reduced to sacramentality (to the celebrations of the sacraments)”. In this perspective, the vocation of the missionary brother must not be ranked second.
