Description

Some missionary attitudes according to Blessed Joseph Allamano (the Founder of the Consolata Missionaries).

Here I am Lord!

1. Passion for Mission • As missionaries – more even than as Christians – we are committed to promoting God’s gory through our work to save souls. • I do everything for the Gospel. • If we neither hot or cold, if we are only lukewarm we will never succeed in anything. • Our apostolic commitment must be supported by knowledge. • The genuine apostle is stable – s/he is both patient and constant. J. Allamano - Missionary Attitudes (Sem. Luiz Antonio, IMC)

2. Gentleness • Jesus is our model (gentle Lamb Is 57:3) • Necessary in the mission • Anger is the opposite of Gentleness J. Allamano - Missionary Attitudes (Sem. Luiz Antonio, IMC)

3. Energy and constancy • Sometimes we complain that we do not really enjoy what we do (we would like the Lord to make us saints without any effort on our part). • A genuine missionary knows how to double his efforts. • Value time • A higher degree of strength (heroic missionaries) • Greatest mistake: to think that we have given ourselves completely to the Lord. (a thread of my heart which does not belong to the Lord?) • Constancy (a small good work carried through to completion is worth more than grandiose projects left half finished) J. Allamano - Missionary Attitudes (Sem. Luiz Antonio, IMC)

4. Love like a family (this is not a School or a Seminary; it is a family) • a big heart (missionaries must have a big heart overflowing with compassion for their brethren) • we ignore our neighbour’s many good qualities and focus on small defects. • Love each other as brothers and sisters (in the family there will be always challenges) • We must take people as they are (e.g. parish priest with the Bishop) • Spirit of communion • Fraternal promotion (discrete, appropriate way and time) J. Allamano - Missionary Attitudes (Sem. Luiz Antonio, IMC)

5. Love for the Cross and Spirit of Sacrifice • We must love and embrace sacrifice as sinners, as Christians and even more so as missionaries • Mortification of the tongue (Cf. James 3:5); be silent? NO; think before you speak! J. Allamano - Missionary Attitudes (Sem. Luiz Antonio, IMC)

6. Patience • St. James: we must be patient if we are to achieve perfection. • On-going effort • Ways? Ask for it in prayer J. Allamano - Missionary Attitudes (Sem. Luiz Antonio, IMC)

7. Humility • • • • • • Jesus example St. Augustine: First virtue: humility; second: humility; third: humility. Necessary for prayer (e.g. Pharisee Lk 18:9-14) • Our work as missionaries (SERVICE) require humility J. Allamano - Missionary Attitudes (Sem. Luiz Antonio, IMC)

I BELIEVE IN THE CHURCH COMMUNION

The Gospel method in loving people     Love everyone;  love Jesus in one’s be the first to love; neighbour, love others as oneself;  love one’s enemies; be one with everyone;  strive for mutuality. J. Allamano - Missionary Attitudes (Sem. Luiz Antonio, IMC)

PUT TOGETHER THE THREE COMMANDMENTS… J. Allamano - Missionary Attitudes (Sem. Luiz Antonio, IMC)
