Message from Lucía Herrerías for the Verbum Dei Missionary Fraternity (FMVD) and the entire Verbum Dei Family (Sept. 7, 2018)
Dear Fraternity and entire Verbum Dei Family,
From Loeches, Spain, and on the eve of the 5th Ordinary General Congress, I want to thank you all for the path we have walked together during these past six years.
I thank you with all my heart for the welcome, the prayers and the support which you have given me in this service of government which God and the Fraternity entrusted to me; thank you for all the enrichment I have received from so many conversations and having participated in the activities of many communities.
I am grateful to God because it has allowed me to know so many brothers and sisters of the whole Verbum Dei Missionary Family with whom I share a spirituality and a mission; it has been marvelous to see how in the middle of our weaknesses, we strive to be faithful, with much enthusiasm, to the charism we have received.
Taking again the words that ended my first message to the entire VDMFam, on October 2, 2012, I continue to ask Jesus to allow us to share his burning desire to set the earth on fire, and that, in a path of humble daily conversion, we continue helping each other to reproduce Jesus, as best we can, in his way of life and his mission.
United on the journey,
Lucía Aurora Herrerías Guerra
