a resistir como el bambú.

  Os tenía un poco olvidados, mis queridos  lectores de nuestro blog. Aunque suene a escusa, me cuesta ponerme a escribir pues siento que no tengo nada que os pueda interesar. Y es como os decía en otro artículo  cuando todo se hace un poco rutinario …ya os podéis imaginar. Ya han pasado un año […]

INTER-RELIGIOUS DIALOGUE; A HARD NUT TO CRACK!

In the ongoing Ordinary Synod of Bishops in Rome whose main focus is on “The Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and in the Contemporary World”, I have particularly been impressed by the excitement both from within and without the Church precincts. Apparently, it has been evident that people have rather diverse […]

JULY & AUGUST ’15 – VERY BUSY MONTHS

“GOD WRITES STRAIGHT IN CROOKED LINES!” I once read heard of this expression but to be honest, it never made a lot of sense to me at that time. I guess it was because at that time and probably from some time back my life had been moving so smoothly. This must have blocked my […]

THE SEVENTH MONTH…

The great German writer, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, rightly put it in one of his works that “Everything is hard before it is easy”.

Aquí los muertos están muy vivos

Olor a incienso, barroquismo de colores y formas ocupando cada angulo, rostros de divinidades con largas barbas con gestos mayestáticos, gente lanzando la dos “cabalas” para  ponerse en contacto con alguna deidad que le aclare o facilite un futuro cercano, o haciendo una ofrenda… Perplejidad, asombro,  como  pez fuera del agua, es lo que siento […]

A HALF A YEAR OLD MISSION

“Do not be desirous of having things done quickly. Do not look at small advantages. Desire to have things done quickly prevents their being done thoroughly. Looking at small advantages prevents great affairs from being accomplished.” Confucius. At the close of the sixth month in this new mission of Taiwan, these noble words of Confucius […]
