Every Monday, it is already our routine to share our reflection of the past week. Sharing of consolations and desolations, things and events of significance to us and even things mundane that somehow allow us to open ourselves to God and to others.
In our second session, we went back to the discussion of vocation promotion and the application of Discernment of Spirt. Jan, one of our Tertian Instructors led the discussion through a case study. The activity reminded us about the ex officio letter of Fr. General on Jesuit being overworked and how it affects our ministry and even our own very vocation. Prayer life is central to Jesuit life.
Tomorrow, Hanh will lead us to a deeper discussion on Vocation Promotions.
One of the consolations in being in a Jesuit community is the grace to serve your brothers by making their tummy happy. Last week Saturday, Gregoire Le Bele, Clement Nguyen, and Marco Ciavarella prepared sumptuous mussel meal with white wine. By Sunday, it was a Vietnamese meal with Hanh Duc Pham cooking Banh Xeo to the delight of the whole community for it was overly delicious. Muchas gracias hermano or should I say, rất ngon! Cảm ơn bạn.
This weekend, Jeff Pioquinto prepared Zamboanga’s style Seafood Chowder, Scampi Pasta and Knickerbocker for dessert. It was his first time to cook and this is where youtube would come in handy. Tonight, Bogdan and Jiri prepared the meal. Since Bogdan is from Poland and Jiri from Prague/Switzerland, they agreed to meet half way, so they prepared Viennese cuisine, Schnitzel.
It is also a consolation to see everyone helping in the kitchen washing the dishes and keeping the kitchen back in order every after meals.
There are more or less 4 weeks to go in Tertianship and more chances to taste food from different countries and more opportunities to cook for the community.
