Feast of St. Arnold Janssen

114 years ago our Founder Arnold Janssen completed his earthly pilgrimage. In such cases we usually say: he died. But Jesus Christ revealed to us that God “is not a God of the dead, but of the living” (Mt 22:32). Therefore, with joyful faith we confess that on that cold January day at the beginning of the last century, our Father, Guide and Founder was born to heaven.
