In yesterday’s Gospel we hear Jesus telling Simon and other fishermen, “Put out into deep water” (in Latin, “Duc in altum”). When the fishermen followed Jesus’ command, they were astounded at their catch.

It’s a message that the Missionaries have heard before. In September 2001, Pope John Paul II addressed their general assembly in Rome. The pope (now Saint John Paul II) told the Missionaries, “When St. Gaspar del Bufalo founded your Congregation in 1815, he was asked by my predecessor, Pope Pius VII, to go where no one else would go and to undertake missions which seemed unpromising . . . Casting his nets into deep and dangerous waters, he made an astonishing catch.”

He told the Missionaries that they must “be no less bold in their decision and actions—to go where others cannot or will not go and to undertake missions which seem to hold little hope of success.” May we all find the courage to follow such a call! To put out into deep water with faith that God will guide us to where we will do the most good.

During World War I, there was a secret message that had to be sent to the front lines. They could not take a chance that the enemy would intercept it, so they asked if anyone would volunteer for this dangerous mission.

One man stepped forward and said, "I'll go. Send me."

"Cold and chill, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever" (Dan 3: 67). Meet Matthew Perez, who serves as shoveler-in-chief at the C.PP.S. House of Formation in Chicago this winter. Those who live in the house meet early in the school year to divide up chores. Matthew, who is in initial formation with the MIssionaries of the Precious Blood, volunteered to shovel snow. He isn’t the only one who shovels, but he has made it his responsibility to be sure it’s done. It's one thing to say that in August, but Matt kept to his promise in January, even during the bitter cold of the polar vortex last week. "That was the coldest weather I have ever experienced," said Matt, who is studying at St. Xavier University in Chicago. "I was never so glad to hear that the temperature finally hit zero." Please pray for Matt and all those who are preparing for life as a Precious Blood priest, brother or sister.

He reminded retreatants that the charism of their Congregation is as vital and urgent now as it ever has been. “The Precious Blood of Christ is necessary for the Church—it affects all kinds of people, and the grace of God still works through it,” he said. “It worked through St. Gaspar and is still working today.
