By Fr. Sergio de Santana, OMI

We follow a Master who became poor for our sake. “If you wish to be perfect,” he said, “go and sell what you own and give the money to the poor… Then come, follow me” (Mt 19:21). In answer to his call, we choose evangelical poverty.

This Saturday evening marked a very important step in the life of the Post-Novitiate of St. Eugene de Mazenod in Sao Paulo, Brazil. We started the so called “Fr. Lorenzo OMI Social Action”, which has as its goal, bringing food to the homeless, once a month, in an evening.
