Savio Haus celebrates the Feast of the Sacred Heart

 Br. Sylvester Kuli, SDB


Port Moresby, PNG, 14 June 2016 -- The Salesian formation community of Savio Haus, Boroko, Port Moresby celebrated the feast of the Sacred Heart by staging the play ‘The Household’, on the 11th and 14th June, 2016.


“The heart that loves us so much, is meek and filled with immense mercy.  This needs to be understood by the aspirants and the students,” reflected Melanesian post novices Br. Sylvester Kuli sdb and Br. Bernard Kaiau sdb. 


Together with Fr. Pankaj Xalxo sdb, Rector, and encouraged by Fr. Pedro Sachitula and Fr. Edwardo Revilla sdb they selected the play The Household’ written by Paul Dungca sdb FIN province.  It revolved on the seven capital sins as different stage characters.  One day, they had a visitor who entrusted them with a gift of a precious child - JC.  The play depicts the transformation that JC brings to the lives of the characters. 


Religious communities had the opportunity to watch the play on the 11th June while a packed house of Salesians, Don Bosco Technological Institute staff, Bosconian male boarders and female borders of Caritas and the Salesian sisters enjoyed the production on the 14th June, 2016.


Song, dance and the action on stage hypnotized the actors as they drew several messages for themselves and their lives.  “It’s a great achievement to get the attention of the young people to enjoy a play which serves the purpose of spreading devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to trust in the Mercy of God and reflect on their weaknesses in life” said Br. Sylvester Kuli, sdb director of the play. 


The production involved sacrifice and commitment as the actors spent time in rehearsals several evenings of the week.  It’s a sacrifice that has produced great fruits.  Besides gaining a fair understanding of the seven capital sins, the actors said they grew in team spirit and have also developed a confidence in themselves.  


“It is wonderful that the aspirants have used theatre to convey a message that they have understood and are passionate about”, said Fr. Ambrose Pereira sdb as he congratulated the cast and crew and challenged the audience to spread messages that are good and positive.


The play has been staged at a time when Papua New Guinea is going through a time of tension as its university students boycott classes in protest against corruption and the present government.  Sadly, there has been destruction to property while a few have been injured.  ‘The Household’ is an opportunity to reflect on the presence of sin and selfishness in each one of us and encourages each one to make a change.
