This morning, Fr. Milton led the participants in a morning of recollection reflecting on the role of St. John the Baptist as a model of our Salvatorian charism and identity. In particular a Salvatorian, is not the Messiah but a voice, which proclaims salvation. In other words, “…our identity [is] to make known in all situations, on all occasions that, in Jesus Christ, God came to save everyone without excluding anyone.” This requires that we have a personal experience of salvation born of an intimate relationship with Jesus that grows through our daily meditation on, prayer with and proclamation of the Gospel. In the afternoon sessions, Fr. Agustín Van Baelen, General Mission Secretary, related this notion to the Founder’s call and the expansion of the Salvatorian Mission throughout the world.
