672 words - 3 pages

[This is the symbol used by the Pauline Fathers to identify themselves. MSSP stands for Missionary Society of Saint Paul]~-THE MISSION STATEMENT-~As Paulist Missionaries we are invited by God in Love to share God's Dream for Humanity of restoring all in Christ.In contemplative listening, we constantly discover this invitation in God's Word, with the People of God, through each other and in the world.We gratefully respond, through our weaknesses and strengths, by participating in the Spirit's liberation and reconciliation of Humanity.[Taken from MSSP homepage]Joseph De Piro was born in Malta on November 2nd, 1877 into a wealthy and influential family. As a young man he thought about becoming a lawyer but then felt that God was calling him to the priesthood.

The Paulist Missionaries are a group of men - brothers and priests - from different cultures living together in community, giving witness to the fact that all Christians are called to be charitable. Wherever they are, their call as Paulists, is to respect and transcend cultural differences and to reach out to all the world in solidarity.When the Paulist Missionaries arrived in Australia, they're main services were towards post war migrants coming into the country, as they struggled for cultural adjustment in a new and foreign land. At present the members work among the poor in Peru, Pakistan and the Philippines. Their work also takes them to Australia, Malta, Italy, Canada and the USA.Currently the MSSP helps Australians in these new and diverse ways:helping young adults to discern...
