Fr Alfred Maravilla started CAGLIERO 11, November 2020, with the question: IS MISSIONARY ACTIVITY STILL RELEVANT TODAY? I was wondering why the question included the word STILL. I was reminded of the popular hymn of Fr. Peter Gonsalves, God still loves the world.`` He has given two Questions for Reflection and Sharing:  Why is missionary activity still relevant today?  Why is the missionary vocation a call within our common Salesian vocation?

EMBARK UPON A `JOURNEY OF REINVENTION`

Have we fallen into a rut, a habitual way of seeing and doing things, that we find very hard to break out of? Are we afraid of the uncertainty and pain that accompanies any change? Can we embark upon a `Journey of Reinvention` in these challenging days of the pandemic Covid-19 and bring about the required changes in our lives?

AN OPEN LETTER TO GC 28 PARTICIPANTS FROM THE SALESIAN SOCIAL FORUM
forum
360° VIEW
16 February 2020 Dear Confreres at GC 28, A group of confreres from Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad provinces in India had come together from 3rd to 5th February 2020 to discuss ways of making human existence and Salesian life more consistent and meaningful for us. Jesus who became human and remained human calls for conversion and to join him to usher in the kingdom of God. This call of Jesus is to everyone: the ordinary people, the anawim, to the Am`hares, the mob, the outcastes, every person of goodwill, even priests, scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees. The call to conversion is a call to a paradigm shift, of our thinking, life and relationships without losing the human identity. In choosing to set the example, by becoming human, and remaining human (Phil. 2, 7), Jesus` identity was not changed. He was born of a woman, totally dependent, was cared for by Mary and Joseph, grew up into a toddler, an adolescent and then an adult and ultimately, as Paul would put it in Ephesians 4, 12-13, into the fullness of humanity becoming a model for us to follow. All who are born human are called to grow into the fullness of humanity.

NEED FOR HEALING CENTRES: WILL THE CONGREGATION RISE TO THE (RADICAL) CHALLENGE? Holding Up to the Light - 24

My intervention in the General Assembly of GC 27 for a Statement (supported by other Chapter members as well) expressing regret for abuses by Salesians and commitment to caring for the survivors did not carry through, as mentioned in an earlier SpeakUp. However the need for providing support and care for those involved in abuse found some expression in the early drafts of the Final Document of the Chapter. I intervened during the discussion on these, pleading for the Congregation`s support for setting up Healing Centres.
