|Padri e studenti in formazione a sant Elie, Bouar|
August 15. Today is a Feast!
Today is a liturgical holiday! The Assumption! The Virgin Mary, taken up into heaven body and soul, image and reminder to every man and woman, who bears within himself, like her, this longing for what is infinite and real gift. Today, Saturday 15, in Central Africa too is feast. No queuing at toll booths, no beach, but for those who want is a time of prayer. Traditionally we go to Doussa, a village 4 km away from Bozoum, where we celebrate the Eucharist. The week was relatively quiet, at least here. I went to Bouar, Thursday. It’s a 500 km driving round trip, with roads that continue to deteriorate. At Bouar I meet our communities. These days our youth are studying with a French father, Fr. Luc Marie, the writings of St. Teresa of Avila, our foundress. The young students are from Central Africa and Cameroon. A beautiful imagine of hope! In Bouar I take part in some meetings for Caritas, Justice and Peace. I am in charge of these Organizations in the name of the diocese. I make a stop in Baoro to see the Church of Kouisso Baguera, started some years ago by Fr. Renato, built by Enrico Massone, and finished just recently, complete with bell tower and paintings. A long job but now is an area of peace and prayer sown in the roads of this Country
