UNWORTHINESS AND IMPERFECTION

UNWORTHINESS AND IMPERFECTION

I would like to share some of my missionary experiences in Taiwan. I have been in Taiwan for seven months now. The community where I live collaborates in some pastoral works such as visiting the sick, giving communion to the elderly and teaching catechism. I am helping the sister in her works together with some lay faithful at the same time I am learning Chinese. Apart from this, once a

NEW ROUTE

NEW ROUTE

The commitment to serve takes a long way and even to unknown destinations.

St. Paul even asserts that our goal in life is to bring everything in

For many peoples, to count on its presence is to feel accompanied in their joys, struggles, and hopes. Today, consecrated life continues to be present in places

We regain hope, Guatemala will never again be without the people

We regain hope, Guatemala will never again be without the people

“In that historic gesture, faith was never lacking. Prayer and religious services accompanied every day, the different sit-ins that defended the country’s democracy.”   2023 was an epic year for Guatemala. It was an election year, in which, even though many social and civil instances had bet on civic education, the outlook was not flattering. 26 out of 30 political parties seek to perpetuate in power the anti-democratic forces, which

PRIVILEGE

PRIVILEGE

The word means, “Advantage of someone, that others, do not enjoy”. In these times we live in, there are real facts, so hard, so incomprehensible that make us think of privileged people. Who? and why? who are not privileged? So many people, families immigrating from the places where they were born and lived, now on their way to other countries where …they are not well received, their arrival makes them
