HAPPY 160TH ANNIVERSARY PAULIST FATHERS
Cardinal Della Genga wrote that Pope Pius IX wanted these men to:
” … spare no labor in the prosecution of the holy missions, in the conversion of souls, and in the dissemination of Christian doctrine.”
“His Holiness confidently trusts,” the document continues, “that the above mentioned priests will labor by work, example, and word in the vineyard of the Lord, and give themselves with alacrity to the eternal salvation of souls, and promote with all their power the sanctification of their neighbor.”
