The Priestly Congregation of the “Miles Christi” was founded in 1994 in Argentina. The name means “Soldiers of Christ,” and their desire is to seek something different from what the world has to offer. Their Rule stipulates that they should reject a “vulgar, empty and useless life” and instead ask themselves, with their gaze turned to Jesus Christ, “What have I done for Christ? What am I doing for Christ? What must I do for Christ?”
“Mary tells us that she has ‘the honor’ of being our mother, assuring us that those who suffer do not weep in vain. These tears are a silent prayer rising to heaven, always finding a place in Mary’s mantle.” Pope Francis
Some 40 percent of the world’s estimated 1.2 billion Catholics live in Latin America, but the continent has seen a decline in the Catholic population. Latin America’s biggest challenge? How to engage the Catholic flock in ways that deepen their knowledge and love of the faith, thus boosting their engagement in and faithfulness to the Church.
Thank you for your support.
We are proposing to help the Sisters in their work with a contribution of $3,900 and also to help for their basic living costs with an additional $5,000. Will you help support the pastoral apostolate of these Missionary Sisters in Cuba as the travel to “where the tarred roads end”?
