JPII Speaks to Capuchins

Dear brothers,
have a true prophetic impulse to help the people of our
time. Animate the youth, promote biblical
groups and prayer communities. Bring
Christ to the world, especially through
the custom of popular contact which
is your distinguishing mark. Be missionaries!
The need to bring the Gospel
to those who do not know about it is
becoming more pressing because the masses
of people who have not yet met the
Lord Jesus is growing. According to the
teaching and example of Saint Francis
you have a rich inheritance to guard:
it will make you well prepared for the
new evangelization.

Rome 1.07.199
