On the Feast of St. Gaspar, members of the Vietnam Mission, ASC members, local diocesan priests, candidates, and friends gathered together in our mission of Tan Thanh (about 100 miles away from Xavier House) to celebrate the Mass and have a dinner party following.

At this event, I’ve learned that our members and candidates have developed their friendships quickly. It gives us opportunities to expand our mission by establishing the very first group of Companions or working in ministries where we find the most need of renewal and the spirituality of the Precious Blood, which has never been known.

If the dream of St. Gaspar was to have a thousand tongues to proclaim the blood of the Lord, today, we need a thousand hands to serve those who thirst and hunger for God’s love.
