Historical Recap – Part 3

By the end of the first meeting of the Task Force (5/29/03), we were ready to start in earnest. However, the bishop had just one more point to make: we must pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit, remain hopeful and be of generous heart. He quoted Pope John Paul II:

Let us go forward in hope! A new millennium is opening before the Church like a vast ocean upon which we shall venture, relying on the help of Christ. The Son of God, who became incarnate two thousand years ago out of love for humanity, is at work even today: we need discerning eyes to see this and, above all, a generous heart to become the instruments of his work. (Novo Millennio Ineunte)

And, when we finished our work two years later, we believe we had discerned the will of God and responded with a generous heart.

Fr. McGuire
