Ego mitto vos (Lk 10:3)


The Lord appoints us and gives instructions how to fullfil the missionary tasks. As our Master he chooses us to be like him. He teaches to love one another and to preach the Gospel around the world. He takes care of everyone in every place and in every time. 
The Lord speaks to the heart of his disciples and encourages them to start working for the salvation of humankind. Firstly, he tells them that they should pray and ask God for his blessing. Secondly, he suggests them to be humble towards others. He explains that people are hurt and fragile. For that reason, they need medicians who will cure them. They don't need more things but gentleness, love and patience. 
Moreover, Jesus Christ focuses on the families who are in need of peace. He wants his apostles to be peaceful persons. Thus, they will be able to share their inward peace with the needy. People are lonely and the disciple of Christ should be with them in their experiences. 
All the people look for support and guidance. Therefore, the apostles are those who cure the sick with the words of peace and love. Thus, the Kingdom of God becomes present in the world.

Diliges ex toto corde (Lk 10:27)


As humans we often use our mind to solve the problems of life. But human life is much more than only thinking. It is also about feelings, beliefs and experiences. Moreover, there are some questions which cannot be answered by ourselves. 
For that reason, we are invited to ask the Lord and to listen to his message carefully. He always reminds us about the issues which are the most important such as love. He turns our attention to the heart and the inner world which is inside us. He says that we should focus on love and use all our strength to share it with others. 
Each of our phisical, psychological and spiritual skills ought to be used for the love of our sisters and brothers. Because we need to love one another as much as possible. This is the main reason of life on the earth as well as in the heaven. 
We learn to love from the Son of God who gave us an example while he lived among us. Therefore, we know how to love each other and our heavenly Father who has created us in order to attain the divine love and enjoy it forever.

In loco sancto (Es 9:8)


Sometimes do we feel weak and troubled. In these moments we should raise our hands to the Lord and ask for help. It is true that we can be ashamed or confounded to look towards the face of God directly. For we make mistakes and commit sins. Nonetheless, we trust in the mercy of the loving Father. We acknowledge our trespasses and promise not to make wrong choices. 
We keep in mind that God the Father is merciful for his children. As his beloved ones we ask him for support and the divine grace. Accordingly, our heavenly Father brightens our eyes and gives us relief in our problems. 
Although we are only humans, with the power of the Holy Spirit we overcome every trouble and suffering. For sure we are never abandoned. We live thanks to the Lord, with the Lord and for the Lord. 
The Providence of God embraces us in all circumstances. Every day we are granted the gift of new life to start again and again. Thus, we are able to rebuild and renew everything which was destroyed by the evil.

Bono fructificantes (Col 1:10)


Christians do not cease praying. In every situation they keep in mind that the Lord is present. Moreover, they are filled with the knowledge of the Holy Spirit who moves them from the very morning until night. 
God the Father has put in them all spiritual wisdom so they act with dignity and prudence. In their behaviour they resemble the life of the Son of God. Accordingly they are pleasing to all the people and bear good fruit. The Holy Spirit strengthens them with the divine power and they work patiently with all endurence in every circumstances. 
Christians are fulfilled with the Spirit of joy even if their lives seem to be hard and difficult. Nonetheless, they keep giving thanks to the Father for all the gifts and especially for their salvation. Living on the earth, they walk in the light though the powers of darkness want to overcome them. 
They are always focused on the Lord who has delivered them from evil and prepared them place in the Kingdom of God. Therefore, with the divine grace they keep doing good and love all sisters and brothers wholeheartedly.

Spiritus super me (Lc 4:18)


As human beings we are connected with people but also with the Lord. Therefore, we need to find time for our beloved ones and for the Lord who has loved us. While we spend time in the community of believers, we hear the Lord speaking to us. He reminds that his Holy Spirit abides in our hearts. Also he teaches that we are beloved children of God the Father. We are called to live in the divine light and love our sisters and brothers wholeheartedly.
Every day Jesus Christ walks with us and supports us, especially if we pray sincerely and open our soul for his grace. Consequently, we are able to recognize his presence in our friends and relatives. We don't look at them as they were the ordinary people but as they truly are the children of God. For sure, accepting this fact is not easy because all of us make mistakes and hurt each other. However, if we forgive ourselves and others their guilt, we start to live a holy and peaceful life.

Testes estis (1 Tes 2:10)


The main Christian task is proclaiming the Gospel of God. Nothing else is such an important and urgent issue. Therefore, working night and day we don't forget to preach the Good News by our deeds and words. We are witnesses for our sisters and brothers who do not know how much God the Father loves them. Through our behaviour and attention we make them feel the divine love. 
We try to live as Christ lived and treat all the people as parents treat their children with love. Thus, we exhort and encourage them to walk in a manner worthy of the God's children. As members of the Christian family we rejoice in the Kingdom of God and build the Christian community on the earth. 
All the time we keep contact with the Lord and all the believers. Moreover, every day we grow receiving the word of God which works in us. We accept this holy word which makes miracles in our lives. Consequently, the love of God is truly perfected in all of us.

Facilius est camelum (Mt 19:24)


We sometimes think that richness equals happiness. However, it is not true. The goods which we receive are helpful but they cannot make us happy. It happens that a person is wealthy but feels lonely and unhappy at the same time. Since the people become joyful when they are rich in their souls.
The Son of God reminds that the true happiness is strongly connected with salvation. Nothing else is such an important issue in one's life. The human beings experience spiritual joy when they discover that the heavenly Father always takes care of them and looks at them. They are glad when they hear God speak to their hearts and know that everything is possible for their God.
Accordingly, everyone who follows the God's commandments receives the abundance of his gifts. Here on the earth the man of God knows that all the people are his sisters and brothers. Although some of them are good and some are not, everybody is loved by God the Father. Therefore, our task is to accept this truth and become similar to Jesus Christ.
