To be or not to be! Papua New Guinea

To be or not to be! Papua New Guinea


Each Year at the end of the spiritual retreat in Papua New Guinea there is a celebration of the PNG - Solomon Islands DELEGATION DAY!


Also yesterday, June 5, after retreat preached by Br. Mon (from Manila) you can browse the many faces of the 14 different nationalities missionaries and slowly growing face of local Salesians!

We can spot already ageing Fr. Luciano (former councilor for the missions) as well we can spot the newly ordained Fr. Isidor and small group of prenovices around. Thanks be to God for this slowly but steadfast growth! Each personal conversion facilitates our pastoral or community conversion! Every true encounter with Jesus transforms our life:

TO BE or NOT TO BE! this is the question!

TO BE RADICALLY following Jesus - our only unfailing roots - is the only way to the future.

TO BE MYSTICS - seeking God with the whole heart in his Word & Bread and in the youth!

TO BE PROPEHTS - seeking God with the whole heart and mind in my brothers!

TO BE SERVANTS - seeking to serve through listening, journeying together, reaching our to the more or most disadvantaged youth!


With a prayer for Fr. Peter - young Delegate of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands I'm ending this Saturday, entrusting all on this wonderful photo to our MAMMA MARY!
