First Sunday of Advent - 2014

Written by

So, the season of Advent comes around once more. We read again from the psalms of the prophet Isaiah, promising a better world for suffering humanity, to be marked by equality, prosperity and justice.

Philip-Gibbs-PNG---with-kidsAfter some time in Papua New Guinea I realised that I had ended up on a sort of plateau when it came to relating to people in greater depth. I was comfortable speaking with people using the Tok Pisin language, but it seemed to me that wasn’t enough, and I needed to put effort into learning the local Enga language.

So I asked the Bishop if I could spend six months in a small isolated village within the parish where I would have the chance of being totally immersed in the local language and culture. The Bishop kindly agreed.

Really, the Rosary? - A Reflection

Written by

Bernd-reflection---October-2014---150Honestly, I never really got into praying the rosary, but even so, I always admire our senior confreres who keep floating the rosary beads through their hands. And obviously it’s something that keeps them in their service of praying for the world and its people.

Throughout my formation we sometimes prayed the rosary together, but it never became my habit to use the beads for my personal prayer.
