Rector Major touched deeply the confreres during his visit to Indonesia


By Our Own Correspondent


Jakarta, Indonesia, 8 February 2018 -- After 6 days in Timor Leste and two days in Indonesia the 10th successor of Don Bosco just left from Jakarta to Rome and we have asked the confreres of the Indonesia Delegation about their feelings and experience:

    "We feel and live the atmosphere of unity amongst us Salesians. It’s very interestingly that each of our 7 setting prepared the SDB and the young to come to Wisma - Jakarta. It’s very important. We feel stronger unity of all of us SDB with the youth and lay mission partners and Friends of Don Bosco."


    "We pray that the lived experience we can bring to our daily life to live our Charism. RM stressed ‘this is important’ and he observed that all (100%) SDB of Indonesia came together. It’ a praise and challenge of us to continue!"


    "The visit of RM enkindled our love to Don Bosco and for the Congregation. People don’t’ know Fr. Angel personally before, but they loved him. His presence brings unity of all: SDB, SF members and our lay mission partners. It enkindled the Salesian spirit in each Salesian. Strengthen the Salesian vocation especially amongst the novices and temporary professed confreres."


    "Two short days of the RM's visit enkindled the joy and optimism amongst the SDB. We feel more unity among the Salesian Family. Closer to the living of Don Bosco and central government of SDB in Rome, we feel care and concern for us here!"


    "This visit keep our courage and enthusiasm! It keep the hope to become a viceprovince of Indonesia! We need to grow and be more stronger Salesians!"


    "I’m so happy with Rector Major this time. Already third time with the RM. But I'm also sad that I’m can’t bring our youth due to the incoming government exam. It was an encouragement to carry on our missions with the Muslim youth in our school with more commitment!"


    "RM is a simple man, creating a environment of familiarity entering the life of many. It encourages me to create it in our SDB community life and larger EPC life with the young."


    "Since I’m working in the school with the Muslims, I was inspired to know better the world of Muslims."


    "This visit gives me courage to continue our growth in family spirit with other Salesians. We realized that we can be more united with our Lay Mission Partners in order to make growth our mission."


    "RM was inspired to meet our friends in "Lovely Hands" (Parish program for physically challenged children), he was like Pope Francis and always to approach the kids with kiss and embrace. It can help us to growth our vocation, to love the poor. Important."


    "This visit brings us Joy, Togetherness, Salesian Family enthusiasm... and also to review our commitment to live our Salesian vocation faithfully. His conference talk, with the challenges was addressed to us Indonesian SDB in very concrete way!"


"And the provincial Fr. Apolinario Maria Neto Ornai concludes:

    "Rector Major carried out the role as center of our Congregation and of the whole Salesian Family and gave us a model how to listen and accompany - both in Timor Leste and in Indonesia. He is a good model for us. Now our Superior knows our situation in our two countries. His visit strengthen our sense of belonging as disciple – missionaries. We feel strengthen with a new spirit in our Salesian life."
