Egypt 2013 - Muslims protecting the catholic church!

Egypt 2013 - 13 millions of Christians are in danger.

Also the Pope Francis asks every Sunday to pray for the peace in this country. More than 80 Churches burnt, sacked and the environment of fear is growing...

This picture of large Muslims human line protecting one Catholic Church in Egypt during the Eucharist which reached me today by Twitter, is a powerful sign of 2013 - sign of God's Love visible through all true religions (True - means listening to GOD!).

God is a Father of one human family.
With a prayer for all Egyptian people
for the peace.

The poorest Salesian house in the world - Kuyuntsa

The poorest Salesian house in the world - Kuyuntsa

Ten days long trip is over. From Lima to Kuyuntsa and back.

Ten days long pilgrimage to reach the legendary place, where 30 years ago started
his Peruvian history Yankuan - Fr. Luis Bolla (1932 - 2013). On the picture is a discple of Yankuan, Fr. Diego (ecuatorian sdb) and two of the permament Achuar deacons.

You need by airplane, car, motorboats and walk some 4 (four) days to reach the Achuar mission.
Ten days without an internet, full of meditation, listening to the nature (rivers and forest with it's animals and birds) and to the indigenous people and their missionaries. All but poetry!

In the footsteps of late Fr. Luis Bolla - in Achuar language YANKUAN - accompanied by Fr. Vicente,
discovering the Achuar culture and evangelization history, but especially discovering the person of a great missionary.

During last 10 days i asked myself many times: What was the motivation which kept going, living in the extreme conditions Fr. Luis among his beloved Achuars?

Strong outlines of Salesian missionary spirituality - it were the main fruits received on this pilgrimage. In Kuyuntsa we celebrated six months of the passing away to God of Fr. Luis.
