Fr. Gregory Gay writes describing new website which tells the little known stories of Vincentian Fathers and Brothers who have committed themselves to sharing Gospel Joy in some of the remotest and forgotten areas of the planet.
In the mountains of Chile and Bolivia, the ice and snow of Alaska, the heat and humidity of Tunisia, Angola, Chad and Benin in Africa and Oceania in Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands Vincentian missionaries bring joy they want to share with you their joy, their daily struggles, the harvest brought in God’s vineyard.

May the grace and peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ be forever in our hearts!
In last week’s Tempo Forte circular, I wrote about an addition to our digital media, namely, the new website for the International Missions. This project came about due to the hard work and dedication of Fr. John Freund, C.M. our web-master for “Fam-Vin”, Thomas “Toma” Zielinski, and support from the Office of Communications at the Curia.
I believe this website is a valuable resource for confreres serving in the missions, as well as members of the Congregation and the Vincentian Family. This new website will help to promote the work of the International Missions, and provide information on the varied works of the confreres and missions where we serve. I believe it will serve to educate all who view it on the crucial missionary dimension of our Vincentian charism.
The link to this website is http://gospel-joy.org/. Please take time to review this website. Confreres in the International Missions are welcome to submit photos, videos, short reflections, and prayers that tell the stories of our efforts to share Gospel joy for posting on the website. To do so, send them to Fr. John Freund at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your brother in St. Vincent,
G. Gregory Gay, C.M.
