God Incarnate in the Richness of Cultures and Lives

Sch. Cesare Gabriele Sposetti SJ (EUM)

If I had to summarise with a single word what I had just experienced in the Scholastics and Brothers Circle workshop in Taiwan from December 15 to 24, I would say "richness". In the 10 days during which we, scholastics and brothers in formation, lived together in Taiwan, we had the wonderful opportunity to discover the resources and the challenges of the Chinese Province of the Society of Jesus, and to reflect on the ministry to the indigenous people and to experience it. This richness is for me especially expressed in the relationships and friendships that we were able to build during those days, both among us Jesuits and with the people that we met in our experiences there.
