CEBU CITY, Philippines - The Marian Apostolate of Stewardship and Service (MASS) takes a new leap in its journey of making Mary more known, loved and served than She has ever been through prayer, formation and fellowship in the spirit of stewardship and service. Last July 27, 2018 at exactly 6 o’clock in the evening, after several months of its ardent prayers under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Totus Tuus Journey (TTJ) finally arrived and was successfully launched at the MASS. The Officers of the MASS were thankful to the Montfort Fathers for their generous response to their request.
The activity was held at the MASS Center located at Room 301, GMT Building, corner Junquera Street and P. del Rosario Extension, Cebu City. It was solemnly launched during the Holy Mass presided by the Montfort Father in Cebu, Rev. Fr. Sherwin Nuñez, SMM. Present were fifteen MASS formators and members and some Montfortian lay associates. After the Mass, Fr. Sherwin gave a brief overview of the 33 sessions and the Montfortian spirituality.
Years back, it was their great desire to be guided by the Montfort Missionaries in their main apostolate called “Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary” by St. Louis Marie de Montfort. Today, God indeed answers their prayers “in His time” - that was when the TTJ arrived at the MASS.
MASS exists for more than two decades already. It perseveringly promotes the “Total Consecration” of St. Louis Marie de Montfort as its main apostolate aside from its various works of mercy: Scapular Apostolate, Hospital-Visit Apostolate and Prayer Apostolate through the Holy Rosary.
At present, MASS is so much blessed as the Totus Tuus Journey begins. Thanks to the Triune God for His infinite mercy and love.
Glory to Jesus in Mary! Glory to God Alone!
