2 ANYS DE CAPELLÀ - 2 YEARS

CAT> El passat dilluns dia 30 de Juny va fer 2 anys de l'ordenació de capellà. Amb els refugiats a Kakuma camp (Kenya) he après el valor de l'estar, d'una presència discreta però constant. Gràcies Bon Déu. No hi ha altre camí que el de la compassió i la tendresa radical, total, sense reserves.

ENG> Last Monday, June 30, I celebrated 2 years of my priestly ordination. It has been a real blessing to learn with the refugees in Kakuma refugee camp (Kenya) how to try to be a compassionate and tender messenger of Jesus.

These days I am rereading Etty Hillesum's diary. I feel deeply moved by the words of this courageous woman who saw it all but remained enamoured of life:

"With the passing of people, 
I feel a growing need to speak to You alone. 
I love people so terribly, 
because in every human being I love something of You. 
And I seek You everywhere in them 
and often do find something of You."

Below a few pictures of the beautiful farewell the 3 chapels in Kakuma refugee camp (Kenya) organized last May. 



Thank you Joan for your friendship
