On July 24, 2023, the members of the Rogationists of the Heart of Jesus-St. Matthew Province commemorated the 13th Death Anniversary of the Servant of God, Fr. Joseph Aveni, RCJ. Fr. Ronaldo Masilang, RCJ, Provincial Councilor for Charity and Missions presided over the Eucharistic Liturgy and was concelebrated by some of the Fathers from the different communities nearby. The celebration was also graced by the presence of some friends who experienced the love, care and spiritual direction of Fr. Aveni.
In his homily, Fr. Ronald, RCJ, recalled how Fr. Joseph incarnated fraternal love, obedience to the will of God, and fidelity to the vocation in his life. After the Holy Mass, Fr. Ariel Tecson, RCJ, Vice-Postulator for the Beatification Process of Fr. Joseph, gave an update on the progress that the Diocese of Paranaque is making for the glorification of our dearest confrere, who touched many souls.
We continue to implore the Lord of the harvest that He may raise to the altars of the church His faithful and loyal servant.
Send, O Lord, holy apostles into Your Church!
