I. Our Mission to the World

It is almost a truism nowadays to say that the Church is missionary by nature. Matthew reports that, before leaving his disciples, Jesus told them: "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, make disciples of all the nations; baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you. And know that I am with you always; yes, to the end of time" (Mt. 28:18-20).

On 16th October 2002, the Holy Father began the 25th anniversary of his pontificate by publishing his Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae (RVM) with which he promulgated the Year of the Rosary (from October 2002 to October 2002) and presented the Church with another five new Mysteries of Light on the public life of Jesus in addition to the already existing fifteen mysteries.

Introduction

In many parts of Peru parishes are made up of small rural communities. Each community has a patron saint and is generally guided by catechists. The priest visits periodically, generally for the feast of the patron and for the celebration of marriages and baptisms. Over recent decades a new style of community has developed, a committed Christian community that is part of the continent-wide birth of basic ecclesial communities.

When people ask us, “Who are you? What do you do?” we reply “We are friars - we are mendicants.” Being mendicant is an integral part of our calling as Carmelites; it recalls our origins and also has serious implications for our work for justice, peace and the integrity of creation.

Carmelites are part of that Renewed Energy that touched the Church and society in the latter part of the 12th century.
