Welcome to a new academic year of loving and serving our Lord, first of all, and as a consequence of that, our FORMDEV community and handles! As you know, the "secret" (in the Lasallian spirituality) to sustained zeal and love is overflowing faith, so may we cultivate our faith throughout the year.
Let us also continue to pray earnestly that those whom the Lord has called to serve in this special ministry of FORMDEV would hear and heed God's call. May we witness a great crop of new facis before the term ends!
Let this passage from Ephesians 3:16-21 be our prayer at the start of this bountiful year from our Lord:
16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
