"Seek the LORD while he may be found, call upon him while he is near."​

Isaiah 55:6
Dear Deacon Nguyen,

Today I single out and honor our Maryknoll Brothers.
It seems only fitting as we celebrate the 79th anniversary of the Brothers' Novitiate for six novices, the blessed addition to our numbers of those called to missionary vocation. But well before then, Thomas McCann became the first Maryknoll Brother in 1912 and played an important role in forming our infant Society.

The September 29, 1938 beginning of the "Brothers of St. Michael"—as the Maryknoll Brothers were first known—coincided with the Feast of St. Michael, which celebrates this archangel venerated by the Church. St. Michael is known as a helper to God's chosen people and a warrior in the spirit realm who fights forces of evil seeking to destroy Christians.

This was a compelling association for those first missionary Brothers, skilled tradesmen responsible for constructing and maintaining buildings in the missions. As their specializations increased, their work branched into many other areas of mission service, including evangelization. Maryknoll Brothers have built missions and schools, worked as teachers and administrators, developed agricultural and other life-sustaining projects, and served in health-related fields.

Prayer for 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time​

You too go into my vineyard
Lord, You do not call me
to become somebody else
or to do what others are doing.

Rather You call me to be me
and offer my limited time and talents
to help those in need
wherever I see them.

There is so much to do, Lord,
so many people who suffer
most of all for not knowing You.
What can I do, what difference
can I make in others' lives?

Yet if you call me, Lord, I will answer
and if you send me, I will go
mindful that Jesus, my Lord,
first came to earth and
helped me like a brother.


~ Father Joseph R. Veneroso, M.M.
Dinh, let us honor the Maryknoll Brothers who paved the way with hard physical work done in humble service to Christ, as well as today's apostolic laborers. Today's Maryknoll Brother is trained to serve God's mission through studies in theology, communications, the social sciences, languages and many other fields. I am deeply grateful to all the Maryknoll Brothers who have served in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the U.S. over these many years, and leave you with a quote from Brother Wayne Fitzpatrick, M.M.: "This really is the most wonderful powerful life of service in the Church that I think is out and women in mission serving the poor. There is nothing like it."

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Raymond J. Finch, M.M.
