Carissimi Confratelli,
vi giunga il mio saluto augurale per questo importante incontro, che si tiene nella Nazione dove, nel lontano 23 Novembre 1976, sono stato il primo Rogazionista a mettervi piede insieme con il caro P. Barbangelo.
Oggi vi si vede felicemente attuato il [i]sognai, sognai, nell\'estasi amorosa, campi fecondi, intrepidi operai[/i] del nostro Padre Annibale. [i][/i] Deo gratias!
A chi mi conosce lascio immaginare con quanto interesse partecipo spiritualmente al vostro programma.
Che il [i]santo ideale[/i] missionario del nostro Fondatore trovi nel [i]Mission summit[/i] un nuovo slancio per la maggiore diffusione e pratica del Rogate e per l\'evangelizzazione e la promozione umana dei piccoli e dei poveri.
P. Riccardo Pignatelli, rcj

Non entro in merito alle riccheza dei temi oggetto di preghiera, di studio e di programmazione del \"First Rogationist Mission Summit\" [Iniziativa certamente ispirata dall\'Alto.
Ho semplicemente il piacere di sottolineare la figura del \"Missionario\" che, nel mistero e nella storia della salvezza, più di ogni altro trova la sua identificazione in Cristo, che definisce se stesso \"Colui che il Padre ha Consacrato e Mandato\" (Gv.10,36).
Il Rogazionista, inoltre, possiamo dire che è Missionario anche per istanza e coerenza carismatica. Soprattutto Luca, infatti, colloca la nostra pericope all\'interno del discorso missionario; e subito dopo il \"Rogate, ergo...\" aggiunge \"Andate, ecco Io vi mando...\".
E\' di estremo interesse il \"Mini Trattato\" che ci ha lasciato il nostro santo Fondatore, P. Annibale, e che leggiamo nerl Volume primo (Scritti estesi) File 1920.
Da sempre e in tutti, il Missionario, per molteplici ragioni, suscita fascino e profonda ammirazione.
P. Gaetano Ciranni rcj
