Easter Greetings from the AMC!

Easter Greetings from the AMC!

It has been a challenging year for many migrants in Lebanon. Our community members have weathered rising rents and scarcer work, fears of expanding conflict, travel restrictions, and a whole host of daily difficulties. And yet, Easter joy abounds! The joy of the resurrection was made obvious this last week here in the AMC. Our whole community gathered for the Paschal Triduum to walk with Christ through his death and resurrection.

Tertianship is what tertians give to each other

Tertianship is what tertians give to each other

The third batch of tertians in Bikfaya have just graduated their school of the heart. Theirs has been a very particular class. It is true of every class, and of each tertian. But armed conflicts leading to displacements and disruptions are not a common tertianship experiment. I am so grateful that all participants kept safe and well, and even drew no little spiritual profit from the difficult situation in which they found themselves.

D’Ankara à Belfast, Le Caire, Ephèse, Nicée, Eskişehir, Almaty (et bien d’autres lieux!)

D’Ankara à Belfast, Le Caire, Ephèse, Nicée, Eskişehir, Almaty (et bien d’autres lieux!)

Qu’est-ce que vous faites à Ankara? Telle est souvent une des premières questions que j’entends lorsque je voyage. Chacun de nous quatre avons bien sûr nos activités habituelles: Michael écrit pour diverses publications (maintenant sur “l’appel universel à la sainteté”); Changmo étudie le turc, commence à s’engager avec les jeunes à la paroisse et s’acclimate peu à peu à la Turquie; Alexis, responsable de cette paroisse turcophone et de la formation de ses catéchumènes, est également impliqué dans des médias et la gestion pratique de la résidence; quant à moi, supérieur de celle-ci, je travaille dans la formation et l’accompagnement au service de l’Église de Turquie, et ai quelques engagements en dehors du pays pour le dialogue interreligieux, à divers titres.

Br. Sandesh Gonsalves is a Jesuit of the Gujarat Province (India). He was engaged with Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) Afghanistan until the crisis in August 2021, when the decision was taken to suspend all JRS projects in the country. The JRS International Office, however, continues to monitor the situation in Afghanistan remotely.  Working with the Afghan Desk set up by JRS IO, Br. Sandesh remains in contact our former JRS staff and the people we have served there to explore possibilities of supporting them through our local partner organizations.

JRS started operations in Afghanistan in 2005. It was a joint mission of the Jesuit Conference of South Asia and JRS, partnered by Jesuit Worldwide Learning. Over 50 Jesuits from several Provinces in India, other religious and lay volunteers served in Afghanistan over the last 16 years, primarily in the field of education. The JRS education projects were implemented with the support of the government and local community. As Br. Sandesh continues to work on the Afghan Desk online, he has volunteered to work with JRS Lebanon for about 4 months, in his capacity as a Programs Officer, after which he will continue his ongoing formation (Tertianship).

بفرحٍ وقلوبٍ مضطرمة – الذكرى السنويّة العاشرة لاستشهاد الأب فرانس ڤان دِر لوخت اليسوعيّ

في حمص، في المدينة الّتي لم يخذلها ولن يتركها الأب فرانس، اجتمع لفيف من المؤمنين بحضور ممثّلي الكنيسة المحلّيّة بأطيافها كافّة، حبًّا ورغبة في الاحتفال وشكر الله على شهادة هذا الكاهن الهولّنديّ الّذي قدّم لأبناء سوريا الكثير حتّى الموت.
