Novo Millenio Ineunte (Towards the Third Millennium)

Linda and I believe this apostolic letter is incredibly prophetic, and therefore hugely significant. In it St John Paul II essentially presents us with God's plan for the third millennium, and includes profound pastoral wisdom and priorities to guide us in our task of "shaping history according to God's plan" (NMI 33)

St. Pope John Paul II On Priorities: In his Jubilee document published in 2001 and entitled "Novo Millenio Ineunte", St. Pope John Paul II outlined 7 pastoral priorities in order of importance. Please view the video to find out what they are.

The Eucharist: Third Pastoral Priority: According to St. John Paul II, the Eucharist - which we know to be the source and summit of the Christian life - should not be our first pastoral priority! How can that be?

Holiness: First Pastoral Priority: Saint Pope John Paul II stated that "holiness remains more than ever an urgent pastoral task". At the heart of holiness is the sense of belonging to God, just as husband and wife belong to each other.

Prayer: Second Pastoral Priority: If we do not wish to become stunted souls, we must commit to prayer.
