The 1st conference talk was given by “Gams” Gallego, a lay consecrated missionary based in Cagayan de Oro, Mindanao. She shared about the gift we have received - “Recall concrete persons who transmitted the gift to you” - and how we have grown as Verbum Dei, in terms of numbers, apostolates and being able to reach out to many. We were challenged to have a heart consumed by the welfare of the people like the Verbum Dei founder, Jaime Bonet. Let us not close up in ourselves!
Like St Paul to become all things to all people, and to win them for Christ (see 1 Cor 9:19-20). As Verbum Dei, we have a fundamental equality from baptism and we share the same contemplative-missionary spirituality. The fruitfulness of the Verbum Dei Missionary Family depends on the sharing of each one. As “each is part of Christ’s body” (1 Cor 12:27), she challenged us to “live as gifted people, share the gift you have… and to be responsible for unfolding the gift we have.”
