Thank you, Fr.

Thank you for summing up for us Fr. Francis Alencherry`s mission report. He has done so well during the past 6 years as the Councillor for the Missions. Since I used to go to Rome every year of the past 6 years to animate the group of SDB missionaries for the Missions, I can feel the great missionary ardour in what Fr. Francis has written.

Film Protest Controversies Help Box Office
forum
360° VIEW
C.M. Paul* ROME (SAR NEWS) -- Riding on the waves of a controversy has been an age-old surefire strategy to salvage flop films. Producers of period or religious films, which normally do not attract large crowds of cine-goers, use controversy to keep their film afloat in the box office. They hope sustained column centimetres, as well as sound and visual bytes in the mainstream media will keep the crowds flocking to the cinemas. In the face of this planned strategy, what should be the reaction of the Indian Church?

The Call to Be Christian among Christian Religious
forum

Why should we need to rethink our Christian life and call ``The last Christian died on the Cross.`` Said Nitchez. ``I don`t believe in a God who sits in heaven and enjoys his life when people are suffering on earth.`` I rather would burn all the Churches and I would be ready to crucify Christ naked for hundred times if he tells me to pray and to pray when my people are dying out of injustice and poverty.

MODERN MEDIA ACCELERATES THE NEED FOR SEX EDUCATION
forum

It is said that while a teacher was speaking to the children on HIV/AIDS she happened to mention that `there are diverse colours of condoms`. A voice from the class interrupted asking ``Teacher, what do you mean by diverse?`` With so much exposure today, children know more than what we expect them to know on sex. But the concern is whether they know the right stuff.

While, there may be some who might still argue that corporal punishment is the best or the only way to discipline children, the time has perhaps come for teachers and school authorities to look for another alternative to discipline students as the commission says no to corporal punishment in any form.

SPACE FOR THE POOR
forum
360° VIEW
It is not important to work for the poor, rather we should make sure that the poor enter our campuses, and become the main beneficiaries of all our works. To reach out to the poor is the mission of a Salesian. When Don Bosco began his work for the poor he went in search of them; he didn`t work inside the campus expecting them to come to him. Like Jesus, he went in search of the lost sheep. It is also true that when we are with the poor and work for the poor we indeed are working with the kingdom of God: ``Blessed are the poor, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven``. Allow the poor to become the center of our activities.

forum

As religious, we have consecrated ourselves to the poor without our own security and desires. As days go by, we tend to sleep off with our own commitment and hardwork. So often we need to discern ourselves and take a right path towards the option for the poor,which is needed for the time and space of this century.
