 It was all about experiences.
I found it different at home, and at the secondary school and it was different at this gathering.
Playing, sharing together, singing and praying together.
More often is observing and exercising my spiritual deeds with the Salesian family.
Finally, I realize it was not an entertainment.

 Moreover, was by observing the Spiritual life of the Salesian family. At first, I felt that I am far from them, but their programs of activities kept my attention, focused on them and I started to feel the spirituality outcome of it while involving.

It was enjoyable to spend time with other youths from other Don Bosco schools.
More youths who have different feelings with different ideas was indeed a good experience I came across.
Grouping us together was one experience that enables me to contribute, this was by discussion, sharing and simple housekeeping etc.

The Mercy Fever In Gizo Diocese

The ‘FB IMG 1462243401274MERCY FEVER’ which converts and globalises the hearts proposed to us by Pope Francis to commit us to forgive others and challenge us to service and solidarity with all has reached the highest point in the thermometer here in Gizo at the centre south Pacific region

The isolation of the parishes from the Gizo Diocesan Centre makes it impossible for the people of the far away villages to reach the cathedral and the Holy Door of the Jubilee year

The pastoral team however did not give up the great opportunity offered to the faithful and proposed an easy and meaningful initiative “If the isolated faithful cannot go to the holy door at the cathedral, the holy door will go around the parishes and the villages to reach the isolated people”

The tour of the 14 villages ended today after two intensive months with the diocesan boat and 60 horse outboard motor which braved the sea which has not always peaceful and cooperativeholy door travelling around

The welcome ceremony at sea has been very well prepared

  • The Holy door was preceded by the Cross and sided by the two banners of the Jubilee year logo

  • The village warriors gave the Cross and the door a real custom and hero welcome

  • There followed a liturgical celebration on meditation on God’s words, celebration of the sacrament of reconciliation and Eucharist

  • The symbolic passing through the reconciliation door implied the acceptance of the gift of compassion received and the commitment to reconcile with one’s neighbours, and peace making among hostile groups. True peace we all believe passes through forgiveness freely received and given

  • The people have been prepared by the pastoral team on a previous visit and responded with unexpected enthusiasm

FB IMG 1462243316107The Gizo priests have shared their happiness in seeing the people participate with all good will

In Melanesian social life “reconciliation-compensation” are key words and the ritual is central in the culture of the village social life, Faith provides the experience first in oneself and the sharing of that experience to others as a commitment to the Gift received

Never have the priests worked so hard as these two months as ministers of reconciliation

How beautiful it is when we can experience reconciliation within ourselves and we share this gift to others… How beautiful it is when we can forgive each other and start again

Mistakes and conflicts can become moments encounter and of growth if faced with an open heart, motivated by faith and generosity
