My Mission

 

Not by might nor by power, but only by My Spirit. Zechariah 4: 6. This biblical verse has helped me gradually to define during my 23 years of Priesthood my ultimate mission: To be a perch to welcome the Dove of God.

 

My Vision for the Church

 

“To be the salt of the earth and the light of the world, so that under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, the Church brings and manifests  the Kingdom of God in all its power on this earth” as Christ Jesus himself prays:  ” Our Father…Thy kingdom Come … on earth as it is in heaven.”
