Dear Father Ennio,
You paid me a visit
last 8 July with single members of the Mission and presented me the
“Apostolic Movement”. Having examined the documents you submitted
me, I notice that the principal perspective the “Apostolic Movement”
places itself in – together with other movements and spiritual
currents – is that of the evangelisation and of the close
examination of the faith. This way, it corresponds to one of the
primordial tasks of our Church and also to a big necessity of the
present pastoral situation.
After having had a
consultation with the Auxiliary Bishop Monsignor Martin Gachter,
responsible of the Foreign language Missions, and with the Episcopal
Vicar Don Ruedi Heim; with the present letter, I am glad to
communicate you that I acknowledge the “Apostolic Movement”
for a five year try
This expiry term,
will offer you, before the end of the five years, the possibility of
referring me on the experiences you have acquired in the meantime;
so that a final recognition may then be passed.
I strongly hope the
“Apostolic Movement” may enrich the Italian Catholic Mission’s
ecclesial life and give an invaluable contribution to the search of
the Christian faith in the Church community. I thank whoever commits
himself in this “Apostolic Movement”; and I thank you for your
efforts in view of a good cooperation within the Deanery, as well as
with the other movements and spiritual currents.
Wishing you and all
the faithful of the Italian Catholic Mission all sorts of good
things and God blessing, I give you my kindest regards.
