Pope Benedict XVI’s Message to the Participants in Holy Week Missions
| WHO WE ARE
His Holiness cordially greets the members of the Regnum Christi Movement who are participating in the Holy Week Evangelization Missions

Papa Benedicto XVI

Mexico, May 05, 2006.  During the Mass that marked the closing of the 2006 evangelization missions on Sunday, April 16th, the Holy Father made himself present by means of a message he sent through Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the Holy See’s Secretary of State.

Fr. Rodolfo Mayagoitia, LC, the Legionaries’ territorial director for Mexico, read the message, which follows:

****

Office of the Secretary of State.
Vatican City, April 5, 2006.

His Holiness cordially greets the members of the Regnum Christi Movement who are participating in the Holy Week evangelization missions.  He invites you to contemplate the great mystery of the risen Christ, the foundation of our faith, in which we find a constant source of spiritual strength in order to tirelessly proclaim our Savior and faithfully serve the Gospel of life he has entrusted to us.

In these circumstances, the Pope encourages all of you to be witnesses of Gospel values in that Mexican region so that, renewing its Christian roots, it may day-by-day construct a society that is more worthy of man and for man, in keeping with his rights and open to full fraternal coexistence.

In this fervent hope and with the motherly protection of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Holy Father raises his prayer to the Lord that he will grant abundant gifts to those who have carried out these evangelization missions.  The Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI sends an apostolic blessing to Fr. Alvaro Corcuera, general director of the Legionaries of Christ, to the members of the Regnum Christi Movement, and to all those participating in the missions.

Cardinal Angelo Sodano
Secretary of State of His Holiness
