Week of January 13, 2014

At the beginning of the Year 2014, the International Direction of AUC has remembered all the diocesan unions of AUC and AUL and wishes at least to communicate it with all the National Presidents and Referents AUC and AUL of the 5 Continents.

We would like only to participate in our ardent desire that in every diocese of your nations there be at least an initial group of 5 members. Everything depends on the passion of the national Presidents and Referents. Everything, yes, everything! Where there is a large fire it can light even the green wood and the wet wood. Do you have this fire, this passion to associate with you those who are committed to encourage the growth in number and quality of the diocesan clergy (deacons, presbyters and bishops), living with the spiritual journey of his own proper diocese.

Here in Rome we are doing this with great conviction and joy ... and in deep communion ... And you?

Best wishes for a Happy New Year 2014...

That you could resume a new "public life" by the banks of the Jordan with Jesus, by His Baptism of penance and by the courageous and humble cry of John the Baptist.

Affectionately in Christ through Mary

- Don Giuseppe Magrin, President
