EAO Good Night Talk (50)                                                                 

                                                                                                                         Venilale, Timor Leste

May 1, 2018

 

Like Mary in Cana: What is missing?

Like Bl. Philip Rinaldi: Concrete items under statue of Mary!

 

 

Dear Friends and Salesian Family members,

 

  Receive a heartfelt May greetings from the community of Venilale - small Valdocco in Timor Leste, on the first day of May, the month of Mary, our Mother and Mother of Jesus! This is a family like little town with one SDB community of Blessed Philip Rinaldi and two FMA communities: one large mountain parish with 16 chapels, many schools, one orphanage, one pre-Aspirantate (SDB, junior high school, 170 boys) and one Aspirantate (FMA).

    

   Since last January 31, I’m moving around the Vice-province ITM of St. Callistus Caravario during last few months of its life and give thanks for all the miracles of Don Bosco in these two countries. And I’m again and again deeply touched by the deep and strong Marian faith in each of our Salesian presences. Especially hundreds of ADMA (Association of Devotees of Mary Help of Christians) members with their committed life witness, deep devotion and organized apostolate contribute a lot to the building of Christian community and Salesian Family!

 

  During this Visitation I’m getting deeply aware of very concrete approach to the youth reality. With an eye on Mary, I would like to suggest for this May journey two models:


  First is Mother Mary with her caring motherly heart, deeply interested in the small concrete needs of Her Son family – the ecclesial community. Like in Cana she was able to discover the things missing at the wedding: Let’s ask of the gift of deep attention to the needs of the young around us. First step on this way is our wholehearted listening to each individual young person!


  Second is Bl. Philip Rinaldi. As you know, he used to entrust to Mary in very concrete way many ‘impossible challenges’- also as the Rector Major. He used to write on small pieces of paper these intentions and put them under her small statue on his working desk. After his death they found many small inscriptions like ‘Dear Mamma Mary, I can’t do anything more, I have exhausted all human ways, take this … confrere under your care!’

  

    Let’s make this month of May truly a special time of listening to the needs of young people around us! Let’s bring their needs to Jesus: ‘There is no wine.’ And Jesus will answer like at the wedding in Cana!

 

I wish you a fruitful month of Mary – May 2018!

 

Fr. Václav Klement, SDB

    Dear father, thank you for your this GNT

    I have emotion when knowing about the love of Bl. Philip Rinaldi and Mary.
    He was a little child of Mother Mary although he was a Rector Major that time.
    I'd like to imitate him about his love and humility.
    Thank you father.

    Thank for the beautiful invitation
    for special Marian reflections and prayers to our Blessed Mother.
    I am going to share the story you told us about Philip Rinaldi wholeheartedly entrusting Her with what he could not solve .

    Made me think of Don Bosco’s words...She did it all!!!

    It is still April 30th in the US...so your message was very timely.
    Thanks again...and abundant blessings for you!

                                               東チモール ヴェニラレ
    2018年5月1日  

    カナのマリアのように:足りないものは?
    福者フィリッポ・リナルディのように:マリアのご像のもとに具体的なものを!

     友人の皆さん、サレジオ家族の皆さん、

     5月、私たちの母、イエスの母であるマリアの月の最初の日に、東チモールの小さなヴァルドッコ、ヴェニラレの共同体から、心よりのあいさつを送ります! ここは、小さな町のような一つの家族で、サレジオ会の福者フィリッポ・リナルディ共同体とサレジアン・シスターズの二つの共同体があり、山間部の大きな小教区に16の聖堂、多くの学校、一つの孤児院、志願準備期の支部(サレジオ会、中学生、170名の少年たち)、そして一つの志願院(FMA)があります。
     1月31日以来、私は聖カリストス・カラヴァリオ・インドネシア・チモール準管区の各地を回り、ここ数か月間その生活を共にし、この二つの国で行われたドン・ボスコのあらゆる奇跡を感謝しています。そして、我々サレジオ会のいる各所での深く強いマリア信心に、私はあらためて深く感動しました。特に何百人ものADMA(扶助者聖マリアの会)のメンバーは、献身的な生き方のあかし、深い信心、よく組織された使徒職をもって、キリスト者共同体、サレジオ家族を築き上げるために大いに貢献しています!
     この訪問の間、若者の置かれている現実への非常に具体的なアプローチについて、私は深く認識するようになっています。マリアに目を向けながら、この5月の歩みのために、二つの模範を提案したいと思います:まず、母マリア。細やかな母の心をもって、御子の家族-教会共同体-の小さな具体的な必要にも深く関心を持っておられます。聖母が婚宴で足りなくなったものに気づくことのできたカナの時のように:私たちの周りの若者のニーズに深く注意を向ける賜物を願いましょう。そのための第一歩は、若者一人ひとりに、全面的に心を開いて耳を傾けることです!
     二人目は、福者フィリッポ・リナルディです。ご存知のように、ドン・リナルディは多くの「解決不可能な問題」を非常に具体的な方法でマリアに託しました-総長としても。彼は小さな紙切れにそれらの意向を記し、仕事机の上の小さな聖母像の下に置いていました。亡くなった後で、次のような意向の書かれた、たくさんの小さな紙が見つかりました。「愛するマンマ・マリア、もうこれ以上何もできません、人間的な方法はやり尽くしました、この兄弟会員○○をあなたの世話のもとにお受け取りください!」
     この5月を、私たちの周りの若者の必要に耳を傾ける、本当に特別な時としましょう! 若者たちの必要をイエスのもとに運びましょう:「ぶどう酒がなくなりました」と。イエスはカナの婚宴のときのように、応えてくださるでしょう!
     実り豊かな2018年5月-マリアの月を!

    Bắt chước Đức Maria tại tiệc cưới Cana, nhìn ra những nhu cầu của tha nhân – Bắt chước Chân Phước Philip Rinaldi, luôn phó thác cho Đức Maria khi gặp những khó khăn nan giải

    Các bạn hữu và anh chị em trong Gia đình Salêdiêng thân mến,

    Từ Venilale, cộng đoàn ‘Valdocco’ thu nhỏ ở Đông Timor, Cha gửi lời chào thăm thân ái đến tất cả mọi người, nhân ngày khởi đầu tháng Năm, tháng kính Đức Maria, Mẹ Chúa Giêsu và cũng là hiền mẫu của chúng ta.

    Cha đang ở Vanilale, một thành phố nhỏ có cộng đòan Philip Rinaldi của các anh em SDB với 2 cộng đoàn của các sơ FMA. Vùng đồi núi mênh mông này có tới 16 ngôi nhà thờ, nhiều trường học, một viện mồ côi, một nhà tu sinh với 170 em học sinh và nhà tu sinh của các sơ FMA.

    Từ ngày 31 tháng Giêng cho đến hôm nay, Cha đã đi kinh lý Á tỉnh ITM (Đông Timor – Indonesia) và trong thời gian qua, Cha cảm nhận biết bao những điều kỳ diệu mà Don Bosco đã thực hiện tại 2 quốc gia này. Một lần nữa, Cha được đánh động rất sâu xa bởi lòng yêu mến Mẹ Maria tại những nơi mà các anh chị em Salêdiêng chúng ta đang hiện diện. Rất nhiều thành viên của Hiệp hội ADMA (Hiệp hội những người sùng kính Đức Maria Phù Hộ) đã và đang dấn thân để làm chứng tá, nêu bật lòng yêu mến Đức Mẹ và tổ chức các hoạt động tông đồ để xây dựng cộng đoàn đức tin cũng như để xây dựng Gia đình Salêdiêng.

    Trong dịp kinh lý lần này, Cha có thể hiểu rõ hơn về thực trạng của giới trẻ nơi đây. Hướng về Đức Maria, Cha cũng đề nghị với anh chị em 2 mẫu gương để chúng ta bắt chước và thực hành.

    Thứ nhất, đó là mẫu gương nơi Mẹ Maria. Mẹ luôn thể hiện trái tim từ mẫu và quan tâm đến mọi nhu cầu nơi gia đình của Chúa Giêsu, tức là nơi các Giáo hội địa phương. Giống như tại tiệc cưới Cana, Mẹ đã nhận ra những gì mà chủ nhà đang thiếu. Chúng ta hãy nài xin Mẹ cũng để mắt đến những nhu cầu của các bạn trẻ đang sống chung quanh chúng ta.

    Thứ đến, chúng ta hãy nhìn vào gương mẫu nơi Chân phước Philip Rinaldi. Anh chị em đều biết, khi làm Bề Trên cả, Cha Rinaldi luôn tin tưởng và phó thác nơi Mẹ, đặc biệt những lúc gặp khó khăn nan giải và dường như không thể vượt qua. Cha Rinaldi đã viết những ý nguyện trên một tờ giấy nhỏ và để dưới chân tượng Đức Mẹ đặt trong phòng làm việc của Ngài. Khi Cha Thánh qua đời, người ta tìm thấy ở dưới tượng Đức Mẹ có rất nhiều mảnh giấy, ghi những ý cầu nguyện, ví dụ như ‘Mẹ yêu, con đã kiệt sức rồi và không thể làm gì được nữa.. Xin Mẹ hãy chăm sóc người anh em hội viên này thay con…’.

    Chúng ta hãy làm cho tháng Năm này trở thành thời gian để chúng ta biết lắng nghe những người trẻ đang sống quanh ta. Chúng ta hãy thưa với Chúa Giêsu những ước nguyện về nhu cầu nơi các bạn trẻ, như Mẹ đã từng nói với Chúa: ‘Họ hết rượu rồi’. Chúa sẽ đáp trả chúng ta như Ngài đã làm theo ý Đức Mẹ tại Cana năm xưa.

    Chúc mọi người tháng Năm với nhiều hoa trái dồi dào.

    Venilale, Đông Timor – 01.05.2018
