Easter Mesage of the General Superior

If we listen hard to the world, can we not hear those poisonous words “Kill him!” being transformed slowly but surely into the healing cry of Easter joy, “Christ is Risen, Alleluia!”? “Christ’s resurrection is not an event of the past; it contains a vital power which has permeated this world.” (EG 276)

Born to suffer

In Kenya mud flaps on motorcycle and bicycle taxis – the so-called ‘boda-bodas’- serve the same purpose as car bumpers elsewhere: as handy miniature billboards for slogans and expressions of popular sentiment. One that caught my eye recently as I was visiting the West Kenyan town of Kitale read as follows: ‘Born to suffer’. It reflected what Jacinta van Luijk, a lay missionary and long time associate of the Mill Hill Missionaries, had told me about the current generation of teenagers in Western Kenya who often feel left out and marginalised by contemporary Kenyan society.

  • Following the Cross amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life.


    This was really a people's way of the cross. It placed the cross smack in the middle of the daily lives and ordinary goings on of the inhabitants of Mbikko. At one station we halted close to a huge rubbish dump and passed over and around it on our way to the next station. So we got our taste of what, if my memory serves me right, is the equivalent of the biblical Gehenna
