Missionary Notes: From Blessed Father Cosmas Grigoriatis

"The missionary's beginning is significant, however it is not the sum of the matter...The outset might be blessed or might become blessed at the end. What's important is that the giving be true and total, without holding back, with a disposition to self-sacrifice and self-denial, and with the aim of leaving our bones among the natives."
--Blessed Father Cosmas Grigoriatis of Zaire (Congo)
from "Thoughts about Missionary Work from Experience"

Rejoice, O Virgin Mother of God, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, for thou hast born the Savior of our souls.
