MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER GENERAL TO THE TRINITARIAN FAMILY UPON THE OCCASION OF THE EIGHTH CENTENARY OF THE DEATH OF SAINT JOHN DE MATHA AND THE SOLEMNITY OF THE NATIVITY OF OUR LORD

December 2013

As we approach the great feast of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus and the 800th Anniversary of the death of St. John de Matha, I greet each and every one of you with a profound sense of fraternal love and joy. My loving gaze is also turned to the Holy Trinity from proceeds Jesus Christ, the Redeemer who became incarnate at the first Christmas, and to the captives and the poor of today. Recently, the Order received the precious gift of the decree of the restoration of our full name as the ORDER OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY AND OF THE CAPTIVES. In addition, we have just celebrated the beatification of six of our Spanish martyrs. These are some special favours granted to our Family to remind us again of the dignity and relevance of our vocation as Trinitarians in the 21st century. And so I would like to share with you some reflections on the second part of our title – “and of the captives.”

At this historical juncture in which we live, the drama of the flagrant persecution of Christians continues to make almost daily news. Prophetic figures like our beloved Pope Francis ceaselessly confront and respond passionately to the reality of scandalous poverty and injustice in the world where millions continue to be deprived of their dignity and freedom despite the availability of all the human resources and tecnological means of communication and transport within the reach of modern humanity. The Holy Father spares no word or concrete deed to announce the Gospel values that proclaim clearly the supremacy of God and the primacy of the dignity of every human being. Likewise, he denounces boldly and with a prophetic outrage the evil of personal and comunal greed, unchecked consumerism and immoral indifference before the undescribable cry of human suffering and deprivation. The need and importance of real human solidarity is a loud and constant message of Pope Francis to the Catholic community and to the rest of the human race.

As I read the signs of the day, especially the realities and experiences mentioned above, I cannot but identify the person and message of our holy founder, St. John de Matha and our reformer, St. John Baptist of the Conception. They too were prophetic figures of their times. Both, our founder and reformer, left their comfort zone and stripped themselves of their ego and pride in order to draw closer to those who were poor and captives. Their sense of solidarity with broken humanity challenged their status quo and made them one with the victims of injustice and oppression. They embraced and advocated a simple and austere style of life in order to share with those who were poor and in misery. The Trinitarian Rule is marked by an abundance of norms regarding charity: charity towards our brothers and sisters in the community and charity towards those who are ignored by and excluded from society. Prompted by an ardent charity, the founder in his rule asks us to deprive ourselves of certain comforts and conveniences so that those who are deprived of the essential in their lives can benefit. Trinitarian poverty and spirit of sacrifice are aimed at the redemption and relief of those who are poor, suffering and in captivity. And so we arrive at the relevance of our title: “…and of the captives.” The Argentinean theologian, Archbishop Victor Fernandez comments on the thinking of our Pope who insists so much on a life of poverty and sacrifice: “It is not love of sacrifice for itself or an obsession with austerity, but interior stripping to put God and others at the center of one’s life.”

The Trinitarians were founded for the redemption or ransom of those captives whose faith was in danger. Thus the principal and universal mission of the Order is the ransoming activity while every community had also its own local work of mercy. This is fundamental to our vocation and central to our mission. Filled with and empowered by a profound experience of the Triune God, the Trinitarian, strongly rooted in his/her community and accompanied by the same community, moves ahead generously and passionately to those frontiers where our brothers and sisters suffer from different forms of captivity and persecution most especially for their Christian faith. While some brothers ventured out on missions, the others in the community joined them in the spirit of prayer and sacrifice while engaging in charitable work locally. The spirit of the “tertia pars” in our rule, which is the longest chapter, makes sense when we understand our mission. Why are we asked to set aside a substantial part of our income for the captives and the poor? They are the privileged sons and daughters of God and they are the victims of excessive greed and uncontrolled consumerism and they are our brothers and sisters. As Trinitarians we are called to be in solidarity with them. Without our personal and communitarian involvement in the lives and destiny of the captives, the poor and the sick, our Trinitarian vocation remains incomplete.

Besides the rule, our holy founder has left us another valuable heritage, another powerful image of our vocation and mission. It is the mosaic of the Christ the Pantocrator flanked by the two different captives, who are enchained and held by his hands. The glorious Christ is setting the two captives free, who are bound by chains and deprived of proper nourishment and clothing. In this icon, not only is Christ bathed in the gold of God’s glory, but the captives as well. These two broken human beings who are from two different races, represent humanity with its religious, cultural and ethnic diversity. Both of them are deprived of their dignity and freedom. Christ is so close to them that he holds them by hand. It is He who restores their lost dignity and freedom. In the circumference of the mosaic are written the words: THE ORDER OF THE HOLY TRINITY AND OF THE CAPITVES. In this mosaic, Christ, who is the image of the invisible God, is at the center surrounded immediately by the two captives and in the periphery is the Order. In order to under stand and live our vocation as Trinitarians, we need to give the first and central place to the Triune God, then to the captives and the poor and last to ourselves. St. John Baptist of the Conception, our Reformer passionately sought and promoted an intimate union with God and the poor: “Oh, God, my holy God, let me have a great love for You! Let me have a great love for your poor! Although I do not deserve to enter into such company, You, who are merciful and desire that all your works should be perfected and complete, wish to have me enter into it so that there may be a Trinity: You, O God; those who are poor in material things; and I who am poor in spiritual things. You are perfect Trinity: one in essence and a Trinity in Persons. In the same way, Lord, You, the poor and I are three persons – make us one; may we be one with perfect union and unity, as You bring it about in the souls which You love and cherish.”

During this Jubilee Year of ours, we are blessed with a vivid memory of our Partriarchs and founding fathers and the Reformer. Their spirit and message awakens us and spurs us to make our vocation and charism our own, so that there is a renewed spirit within our religious Family. God has given us an invaluable vocation and charism and this gift is intimately connected to our love and solidarity with the poor and captives of today. We cannot afford to remain indifferent to the plight of the poor and persecuted. The Holy Father continues to raise the Church’s consciousness to the needs of the poor and suffering. Our fathers, John de Matha and John Baptist of the Conception, with love and solicitude, ask us to open our eyes, hearts and communities to the realities around us and in the world. Once again, let us listen to the pleading of our reformer: “Let us love this blessed invitation which God extends to us to aid and love the poor. Since the world does not want to hear it and is blind to them, it is lost; for whoever loses sight of the poor, is lost.”

In this context, let me express my joy and satisfaction in seeing so many of our brothers and sisters who are generously engaged in attending to the needs of the poor and captives in the various countries where we are present. While we have some brothers who are very attentive to the needs of the persecuted Christians, we are trying to promote a greater participation in this ministry. And so, the Family through the Organization SIT has a central and crucial role in promoting a greater awareness of the plight of those persecuted for their faith in Christ. Our commitment to the work of SIT must be real and substantial.
Furthermore, our contemplative nuns support us and our ministries with their prayers and sacrifices; some of the monasteries also help the poor materially. A good number of our sisters in the various institues and many members of our laity are zealous in their service to the poor and needy. Our brothers and sisters in prison in several countries enjoy the benefit of our presence and care for them. Our soup kitchens and other centers where we nourish our needy brothers and sisters materially and spiritually, are beautiful places of Trinitarian witness. Our benefactors and well wishers continue to support us generously in our ministries to the forsaken. The countless captives who were ransomed by the Trinitarian Family during the past centuries are a good triubute to our title, “AND OF THE CAPTIVES.”

I thank all of you for your wonderful witness and generosity. With fraternal affection I greet every captive and prisoner, the poor and the sick whom we serve. If there might be any lack of enthusiasm and fervor in any member of our Family, or in any community, concerning the poor and the captives, I take this opportunity to encourage us all to be even more active participants in incarnating our charism in every corner where the Trinitarian Family is present. Let us continue to move out more and more toward the captives of today with a fraternal spirit and a greater sense of solidarity reaffirming our wonderful and relevant charism. Let us make it our goal that all the dimensions of our life: the spiritual, communitarian, formative, apostolic, and the administration of goods, may be marked by our unique seal: Glory to the Trinity and freedom to the Captives! Given this, “the chest of redemption” which was established in the extraordinary General Chapter of 1999 as one of the concrete means to live out our love for the poor and captives, must be strengthened where it is functioning and reactivated where it has ceased to exist.

Once we are convinced of our noble vocation and charism and are aware of the challenges of the day, especially those that concern the sad predicament of the poor and persecuted, it will motivate us to live our vocation with greater transparency and authenticity. It will help us to be more sharing among ourselves and with those in need. Unfortunately we are not exempt from the temptation to be closed within ourselves and to stay within our comfort zone. We also need to be freed from those chains that keep us bound. With hearts and hands ever open, we will rediscover the joy of living as brothers and sisters and share even the little bit we have with the poor and needy. The poor and the suffering continue to clamor for our attention and generous response. If there is any tendency to give into any type of greed and consumerism, to accumulate money and things, both material and spiritual, only for ourselves, forgetting the norm of common ownership (sine proprio), let us confront ourselves in this Jubilee Year.The Spirit of God, the message of our first Fathers, the cry of the least and the last and the restoration of the complete title of the Order should prompt us to welcome that which is helpful so as to live faithfully our vocation and to reject that which is harmful to our fellowship within all of our communities and goes against our solidarity with the victims of oppression and injustice.

Our Lady of Good Remedy offers us the lasting Remedy in her Divine Son, Jesus, who is the Ransom for our redemption. Our holy Fathers and all the holy women and men of our Trinitarian Family, most notably our recently beatified martyrs, gave themselves and all they had generously to live the spirit of ET CAPTIVORUM. Now, they beckon us to join with them in the sacrifice of our lives today.

In conclusion, I wish all of you a very happy feast of our Patriarch and a truly blessed and joyful Christmas celebration.
Fraternally yours,

Jose Narlaly, O.SS.T.,
Minister General

November 25: Death of two brothers of the Order of the Most Holy Trinity

At 10:15 PM. on November 25, 2013, our brother, Fr. Juan José Ayerbe Olazarri, entered the peace of Christ while at the hospice residence of Gorliz, in the Basque Country of Spain. At the time of his death he was a member of the community of the Trinitarians in Algorta. On November 18, Fr. Juan suffered a stroke which caused severe damage to the heart and lungs. After initially improving in the early days following the stroke, his health began to deteriorate quickly until his death on November 25th. The funeral Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, November 27, 2013, in Algorta, at 7:30 PM.
Fr Juan José was born in Villarreal (Guipuzcoa) on June 10, 1927. He entered the Trinitarian minor seminary in Algorta, where he later made his novitiate in 1943 and professed his first vows in 1944. He made his solemn profession of vows in Rome on December 25, 1948, and was ordained to the priesthood on March 10, 1951. Fr. Juan was one of the founding members of the community in Cuba. Upon the expulsion of our religious from the island by the communist government, Fr. Juan went to the United States and ministered in Hispanic ministry In Victoria and Corpus Christi, Texas, until his return to his native Spain in the late 1980’s.
Let us pray that the Holy Trinity will receive his soul in the heavenly Kingdom and assure our brothers of the Algorta community and the Province of the Immaculate Conception of our communion in prayer at this time. R.I.P.

This morning we have learned of the death of Fr. José de Jesus Alonso Chavez of the Delegation of the Most Holy Redeemer (Mexico). He was born on June 19, 1938 in Tepozan (Jalisco). He was ordained to the priesthood at Rocca di Papa on August 16, 1980. It was only after his ordination that he entered the novitiate of the Order in Rome and made his solemn profession in Mexico City on February 26, 1984. Let us pray that the Holy Trinity will receive our Brother into Paradise and let us assure our brothers of the Delegation and the Province of St. John de Matha of our union with them in prayer at this time of loss. R.I.P.
