Hi, Fr.TD. BIS Team has recommitted to start dialogue among confreres, departments, communities on the possibilities and alternatives during Covid19 pandemic and beyond. Join the team. You would have read the BIS News on Covid19 Relief activities carried out in our provinces. And we appreciate and salute all our confreres and lay collaborators who go about serving with the mind and heart of Jesus Christ.

A very good attempt and highly effective. Congrats. I too have a humble suggestion that I have repeated ad infinitum/nauseam. Jesus is he communication of the father. BOSCOM must serve as that communication. Communication is a mission, a way of relating, more than technology, a tool. Are we going to just adjust to COVID 19 and go on as usual. This is the impression the report gives. The letter from Rome of La Croix International has the title: "THE CHURCH MUST DIE BEFORE IT CAN RISE AGAIN: Only those who do not really believe in the power of the Resurrection would seriously think that the Church could remain exactly as it was before COVID-19 (Good Friday, April 10, 2020). How do we respond to the challenges of COVID 19 which predictably may exceed any of the calamities known in history. Even worse is expected. Can BOSCOM initiate dialogue among confreres, departments, commmunities on the possibiities and alternatives. For me no TINA, rather TAMA, There Are Many Alternatives. Holy Week washed out, liturgy and Eucharist not possible for the people. Will the clerical church go on leaving the people to their fate at the bottom of a hierarchy that Jesus never wanted! Will we grow up into the Spirit of Chrit?
