IS MISSIONARY ACTIVITY STILL RELEVANT TODAY?

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?

I am a confrere from the Hyderabad province and interested in the congregation. In the gospel today Jesus says, ``If anyone wants to be first, he must make himself last of all and servant of all`` (Mk. 9, 30-37). I wish Fr Angel Ferdandez Artime, Francesco Cereda, Bro Jean Paul Muller and the rest of the general council members fulfil this call and unfulfilled mission of Jesus by their example at GC 28. My suggestions:

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.

I received an invitation from Fr Eugene through Fr Ashok informing that the pioneers from the province were also being invited for the Silver Jubilee Celebrations of BOSCOM on December 5, 2019 at Dimapur. I wrote back: I appreciate the thoughts of Fr Eugene and the current BOSCOM team to think of those who have contributed in the past and to felicitate them. I am not in a position to come, yet I would like to reiterate what I used to say when I had the privilege of being part of BOSCOM as the delegate of the province and as representing dbdigits:

I am Katherine Christy, a visitor from the US, at Don Bosco Navajeevan, Ramanthapur (Hyderabad). Here`s my viewpoint of a rather enriching day involving children engaged in making the world a better place through their membership in the Human Rights Clubs. 27 April 2015 marked the conclusion of the Human Rights Clubs summer camp for Government school children hosted by PARA (People`s Action for Rural Awakening) and partnered by Don Bosco Mondo. In the past year, PARA has initiated 428 human rights clubs spread across 7 districts in 366 state run schools of the two states for Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. There is total membership of 20,259 students in the clubs.

Salesian Lay Brothers` Congress 2014: Holiness as Partnership
forum
360° VIEW
Jai Ho! Salesian Brothers` Congress is yet here again, with the usual panoply and fanfare? Perhaps, No. I noticed something different from the conventional, this time over, about the Congress. To start with, there is something fascinating with the theme appearing on the Logo: ``Salesians, be Holy.`` It gives me a hunch that the forthcoming Congress is not going to be a predictable copybook repeat, with the customary ingredients of Brochure, Beverage, Tour, T-Shirt and Topi, smacking of a corporate mega-show. I have a feeling from within, that this Congress is going to break new ground. A Paradigm Shift is on the horizon, in the way, the Brothers` Congress has been imagined and going to be executed, with also a Survey on Salesianity, served, as we were running up to the Congress.

Vote for vote sake (the Pulse of India)
forum
360° VIEW
For the first time in the democratic history of India after independence, the Indian citizens have become aware of the Right to Vote. This is indeed a happy sign, a progressive note in the thinking pattern of Indian folk. Watching the television channels and reading the newspapers before the elections, I got an over all impression that for the first time ever, there has been a great move in Indian citizens to exercise their right to vote. Thanks to many organizations who are instrumental in achieving this cause.

Walking an Extra Mile...
forum

Recently once traveling in the train, I have come across a situation where the aspect of spirituality was put to question. I happened to witness a situation where an youngster took out his laptop and started showing a few film clippings to his nephew and niece who were with him(I only heard them calling him Uncle). After a couple of minutes, in my curiosity, I too became a viewer of the same since being in the same berth. As we were lost in watching, a boy aged around twelve came begging. At the first instance, none of us paid attention. As the boy pestered asking for some money, the youngster got annoyed and chased him. As I got diverted from watching, I happened to see the boy in his misery, both the legs swollen. He dragged himself from our coach to the next with great difficulty. It was only later, that I realized the boy had no more strength to walk and fallen asleep near the toilets. This incident triggered in me a sense of being one with those in need. Though, I myself never bothered in the beginning, later, the thought kept ringing in my mind.

Renounce to Regain (Spirituality of Lent)
forum

The season of Lent, a season of Grace is at our spiritual door step again. The aftermath of the financial breakdown and the bankruptcy of the entire world economy make rather a meaningful reflection as we go to begin the season of Lent. Holy Mother the Church invites all of us to rethink of our spiritual lives and calls us to a life of renunciation during the season of Lent.
