Easter is a time when we focus on our Lord Jesus Christ’s death on the Cross and His triumphant Resurrection.
Father Thomas Judge, C.M., founder of the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity, spoke of the symbol of the Cross. “The Cross is a sign that provokes us to love, to worship, to gratitude, to thanksgiving, to service. The Cross is our hope, our joy, our peace and consolation. It is a blessed pledge of a happy future, a happy eternity. We cannot look upon that Cross without knowing that thereupon was paid the price of our soul’s salvation. In the Cross, there is power. In the Cross, there is help.”
The Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity continue to follow in the footsteps of the apostles who, filled with the Holy Spirit, went forth to spread everywhere the knowledge and love of Jesus. We continue to serve and promote the “preservation of the faith” by developing a missionary spirit in the laity with the goal that “every Catholic be an apostle.”
We minister to “spiritually neglected and abandoned Catholics who are in danger of losing their faith, especially the poor.” We work in a variety of ministries wherever that ministry is needed.
Some of our ministries include:
- religious education at the parish and diocesan level.
- preparation for the Sacrament of Baptism, in particular with adults who were baptized as infants, but never received the Sacraments of First Communion or Confirmation – many of whom will receive the Sacraments on Easter Day.
- unique programs for youth and young adults which encourages full participation in the life and mission of the Catholic Church.
- family life development and enrichment.
- interfaith ministries.
And so many more. Click here to make a gift, or simply scroll down to the bottom of this page.
This Easter, let us remember that happiness comes from understanding God and knowing that He has a plan for our eternal joy and peace. Happiness comes from knowing and loving the Savior and living our lives in accordance with His teachings. As powerful as our message is, it can only be shared heart to heart, soul to soul, spirit to spirit by caring and showing love. We continue to be watchful for one another and reach out to one another. And as we do so, we will radiate our Catholic faith in our own lives, and it will radiate to the people the blessings our faith has to offer.
And it will radiate to the people the blessings our faith has to offer.
The Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity appeal to you for whatever gift you can offer that will help us with our present ministries. With this appeal, I am sending three Easter Novena Mass cards for you to share with your most dear ones. The front cover depicts our Mission Cross located at the Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat in Holy Trinity, Alabama. These Easter Novena cards each bring with them a special remembrance in our SOLEMN NOVENA OF MASSES to be celebrated in the Holy Land beginning on Easter Day. Click here to view our Easter Novena Card.
Please list the names of loved ones you wish to include in our Novena when requesting your card. I will make sure their intentions and yours are included.
To quote our co-founder of the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity, Mother Boniface, “May you in this holy season be as happy as you have made others and may our Risen Savior comfort and favor you with the sweetness of His Easter peace and joy.”
With deep gratitude in the Holy Trinity,
Sister Marie, MSBT
