Cardinal Stanisław Ryłko
President, Pontifical Council for the Laity
The recognition you received by the Pontifical Council for the Laity, in 2002, as an International Private Association of the Faithful, is a fundamental sign of the goodness and validity of your experience and the church expects from you further fruits of communion and commitment.
Never forget that all mission springs from contemplation of the mystery of Christ, especially in the Eucharist, "for the Eucharist is a mode of being, which passes from Jesus into each Christian, through whose testimony it is meant to spread throughout society and culture" (Mane nobiscum Domine, 25)
Cardinal Ivan Dias
Prefect Emeritus, Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples
For a number of years, I have followed your institute and its various evangelistic and missionary activities such as the School of Mission, Missionary Congresses and the distribution of the JESUS Film in several languages. I assure you that I am very close to you and to all your collaborators as you labour to spread the sweet fragrance of the Gospel across all the continents.
Cardinal Paul Josef Cordes
President Emeritus, Pontifical Council "COR UNUM" for Human and Christian Development
From what I have been able to observe and learn firsthand, the ICPE Mission has produced considerable fruit in the field of evangelization. In all its worldwide efforts, the ICPE Mission aims at spreading the Catholic faith by encouraging Christians to reply to this appeal.
Furthermore, the ICPE Mission carries out a significant and practical initiative of evangelization that, at the same time, is an activity in favour of human promotion. And this is a very important aspect in the Gospel proclamation.
Most Rev. Peter K. Sarpong
Archbishop Emeritus, Kumasi, Ghana
Apart from the multiplication of evangelizers, the ICPE Mission has formed formators who can handle the training of lay people for evangelization. Their work has been marvelous and I am not surprised that it has been blessed visibly by God who, through this work, has called many to follow in the footsteps of the Lord.
Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe
Archbishop, Naples, Italy
More than ever, in the world of today, we need Catholics with a renewed commitment to the heart of the Church’s mission: proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its integrity, calling to obedience in faith, promoting authentic holiness and working for the spreading of God’s Kingdom to every aspect of personal, social and cultural life.
As you strive to carry out your mission in communion with each other, with your pastors and all the faithful in the variety of their gifts and callings, I commend all of you to the loving prayers of Mary, Mother of the Church.
Cardinal J. Francis Stafford
Major Penitentiary Emeritus, Apostolic Penitentiary
I would like to take this opportunity to encourage the ICPE missionary community in its important worldwide work of forming and equipping lay people to be effective evangelizers, working always in close collaboration with the local diocesan bishops in service to the local Churches in which you minister.
Most Rev. Nicholas Chia
Archbishop Emeritus, Singapore
It is my understanding that the Institute for World Evangelization is committed to the mission of evangelization and the formation that accompanies this mission. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage the ICPE missionary community in its apostolate of forming and equipping lay people to be effective evangelizers.
I look forward to the gifts and resources that you, as the Institute for World Evangelization, can share in our mission of empowering the laity, in particular, ideas and proposals for the young adults.
Foundress, Focolare Movement
On the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of the foundation of the “Institute for World Evangelisation – ICPE Mission”, I am delighted to share the joy of its founder, Mario Cappello, and of all its members, in giving thanks to God for the fruitful missionary activity that has proclaimed and witnessed God’s love and of the salvation of Jesus Christ in many countries with great success.
I wholeheartedly wish the most complete faithfulness to the charisma received, and assure you of my sisterly unity.
