• WHAT MUST WE DO?
  • PREPARE THE ROAD
  • THE LIFE THAT GOD WANTS
  • WHAT MUST WE DO?

     

    Third Sunday of Advent Reflection.

    (Lk 3,10-18)

     

     “When all the people asked him, "What must we do, then?"  he answered, "Anyone who has two tunics must share with the one who has none, and anyone with something to eat must do the same."

    There were tax collectors, too, who came for baptism, and these said to him, "Master, what must we do?"  He said to them, "Exact no more than the appointed rate." Some soldiers asked him in their turn, "What about us? What must we do?" He said to them, "No intimidation! No extortion! Be content with your pay!"

  • PREPARE THE ROAD

    I have just come back to my mission of Sierra Leone after four months at home, in Italy, including a serious prostate operation at the end of September. I am making mention of this because there I left stores and streets and restaurants overflowing with lights, decorations, and promises of a very Merry Christmas, if only one buys a lot of items, expensive gifts, and fine foods … to no end.

    Within this “worldly” context, the call of John the Baptist for repentance in the Gospel of this second Sunday of Advent is then hard to fall on ready-to-listen ears. We are too busy with so many lovely things that to remember our sins now and to start walking on the path of repentance does not make much sense.

  • THE LIFE THAT GOD WANTS

    1st Sunday of Advent Year – C

    In the second reading, taken from the First Letter of Saint Paul to the Thessalonians, after having prayed for them that the Lord be generous in increasing their love for one another and for the whole human race, Saint Paul urges them to make more progress in the life that God wants. What is the life that God really wants?

  • CHRISTIAN SOCIAL INVOLVEMENT IS NOT AN EASY TASK.

    An interview with Fr. Franco Bordignon, Sx.

    Since October 28th, the Synod of catholic bishops on “Young people, Faith and vocation discernment” is over. The question now is: what is next? In their letter to the Young people, the Synod Fathers said: “We are certain that with your enthusiasm for life, you will be ready to get involved so that your dreams may be realized and take shape in your history”. (cf. Letter from the synod fathers to the young people. You are the present; be the brighter future. 28/10/2018).

    It means that after the synod, Christian young people are expected to be involved in their different social contexts as a way of bearing witness to the Joy of the Gospel. But moving the Joy of the Gospel from the church to the world is demanding. This is what stems from the interview of Fr. Franco Bordignon, a xaverian missionary working in DRCongo since 1972. With Fr. Louis Bira, he shared his experience of Christian social involvement describing it as “not an easy task”.

  • WE JOURNEY TOGETHER: WITH THE CHURCH AND THE YOUTH

    In view of the ongoing synod of catholic bishops in Roma, the African Study Center of the Xaverian Missionaries decided to consecrate the n°11 of his magazine on the topic of “Youth Ministry”. In this way, we wanted to journey together with the Catholic Church and the Youth.
