WEEK I — THURSDAY: Blessed Oblate Martyrs of Laos (1960-1969)

Collective letter to the Superiors of the Oblates, written by Blessed Mario Borzaga

1-m-d-l-3Please accept this brief greeting from the Fathers of the Vicariate of Laos, gathered here in Paksane for our annual retreat. There were 45 of us. This morning, we had the closing ceremony with His Excellency celebrating a Pontifical Mass, along with the renewal of vows and the consecration to the Sacred Heart.

In a few days, we will begin our daily retreat, wherever God wants, always united to Him, more and more as apostles and as Oblates.

Our work sites, whether old or new, close or far-off, await us for a new year of hard work; they hope that we will be renewed in the spirit of sacrifice and in the holiness that God and the Church expect of us.

During this holy retreat, we prayed a lot to the Immaculate Mother of God, that abundant divine blessing might assist and promote your programs for the Mission.

(There follow the signatures of the participants at the retreat, including the six martyrs: Joseph Boissel, Vincent L’Hénoret, Louis Leroy, Jean Wauthier, Mario Borzaga, and Michel Coquelet)
