Brought together by the crisis

Living for Christ...

Father Francis (a Capuchin priest) lives for Christ – and for the poor. Together with his confreres in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu he cares for those students who “have heard God’s call” and are ready to serve in the missions. He shares what he has with his students – which, for a mendicant Franciscan friar, is not much. That’s why he thanks you “from the bottom of his heart” for the Mass offerings we have sent for him and his 65 brother priests. They are especially thankful because the ordinary faithful in the parishes can give them practically nothing. Needless to say, the coronavirus has made getting funds all the harder – and, he insists, his prayers for your intentions in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass are all the more fervent as a result. So, while we should never seek out suffering, the example of the Capuchin Fathers in Tamil Nadu proves one thing: this crisis can bring us closer together in Christ.

The Mass is the most effective prayer that could be said on behalf of those who have died. ACN can arrange recurring annual Masses for your dearly departed loved ones.
