18 August 2019 – Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

Jesus, Your words resound loudly to my heart: help me to live Your Gospel consistently even when it asks me to go against the tide.

     The Missionary Family Saint Nicodemus is a dawning Catholic missionary community, including a clerical religious institution - already constituted as public association of believers, in sight to be erect by law in diocesan religious institute, from the Bishop of Luebo (Democratic Republic of Congo) - and, as I plan, also a female religious institution and an churchly association. The inspiration of the birth of the Community, has sprung from the consideration of the life of Saint Nicodemus Abate on the Kellerana mountain, that is found in the territory of Mammola (Reggio Calabria), in Italy. This correspondent Site Web, intends to develop a function of information and cultural and religious formation, also to comply to one of the works of apostolat foreseen by the statutes of the same Community.

and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!

Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth?
No, I tell you, but rather division.
From now on a household of five will be divided,
three against two and two against three;
a father will be divided against his son
and a son against his father,
a mother against her daughter
and a daughter against her mother,
a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."

has to the center the communion with the Father and with the brothers,
