Jubilee Witness

A journey of 25 years as a Mill Hill missionary priest is not only a jour­ney of many ups and downs, of countless joys as well as sorrows, but also a journey of grace. St Theresa of Lisieux says of every­thing received in life that "All is grace". My journey of 25 years as a missionary cannot have been without God's grace and his kindness. Looking back over the years that have gone, I feel blessed to have been given a variety of opportunities to work as a missionary priest.

Jubilee Witness

To appreciate God's guidance throughout my life, I wish to share with the friends of Mill Hill tee following. When I was born, Europe was in turmoil. It was during the Second World War. The village of my parents was still poorly developed. Being a mountainous area the nearest road was about 5 kilometers away. There was as yet no electricity in the vil­lage. We were a community of 20 farmers. The little primary school had just one classroom for all 5 classes, with only one teacher nor all classes; in all 24 pupils. The parish priest came twice a week for religious instructions and for Holy Mass.

Living with Muslims

"In this edition of Promotio Iustitae, a number of Jesuits who live together with Muslim communities in various parts of the world describe their experience of sharing life with people of Islamic faith, in very distinct circumstances. They speak about the challenges and opportunities presented by dialogue with these communities in everyday life. They describe what they have learned and how they have been rewarded by these encounters. Moreover, they reflect on what Muslims and Christians can offer each other in this complicated world that we live in. We hope that these pages can help us to better position ourselves faced with the challenge of living together, Christians and Muslims.”
