Mario Cappello's Oceania Pastoral Visit

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Matthew 22: 36-39)

It has been a great privilege for us at the ICPE Mission New Zealand to receive Mario Cappello, the founder of the ICPE Mission as he made a pastoral visit to different members of the GOGICC family in the region of Oceania (2-12 Feb 2015).

Throughout his time with us at St Gerard’s, he had the opportunity to meet covenanted members of the community, those participating in the year of Community Experience with the ICPE Mission, the brother priests & priestly candidates at the Manresa House and also the Companions of the ICPE Mission.

Not only has Mario's presence brought about a clearer vision but has intensified the passion of each of us in the community in building God's Kingdom. He exhorted us that we remember in all our daily undertakings the necessity to love God and to love others which would enable us to be effective missionary disciples.
