Message from the Superior General of the Passionists

To mark the opening of the Jubilee Year of St Charles of Mount Argus, the Passionist Superior General, Fr Joachim Rego, sent this message to the Provincial, Fr James Sweeney:
Dear Fr. Jim and the St. Patrick’s Province Passionist family,

Congratulations and blessings as you commemorate the bi-centenary of the birth of St. Charles Houben tomorrow (11 December 2021).

I join with you in giving thanks to God for the gift of this simple, holy and effective agent of God’s compassion and healing to the Church and to our Congregation.

It is wonderful that your Province is recognising this event with the celebration of a Jubilee Year by which St. Charles will be better promoted, so that in these times of great need, many will seek his

intercession and intervention to find healing and hope in their difficulties, illness and suffering through the power of Christ’s Passion which gave strength to Father Charles’ life and nourished his ministry.

Best wishes for the inauguration of the Jubilee tomorrow in Mount Argus.

May St. Charles intercede for the renewal of the life and mission of our Congregation.


Joachim cp
