This morning I woke up at 5:15 a.m. Then I ate breakfast. After that with my friend who is also a SVD missionary we both went to celebrate the Lord's Ascension at Lela's parish station, named Nanga. Mass at 8:00 a.m. There were many Catholics who attended this mass.
I led Mass and father Yulius preached. I introduced myself to the people of the station. The church was full of women, men and youth. There was also a choir singing during the Eucharist. At the end I shared a few words about Poland and my family.
After that we returned to the seminary in Ledalero. I read books in Indonesian. Especcially, I like a book "Dzienniczek" by Santa Faustina Kowalska. Every day I read a few sentences, choose one and publish it on the website.
As usual after lunch I took a rest and learnt new words in Indonesian. At 4:30 I studied the language with an online teacher. I am very happy because I am able to write in Indonesian.
Prayers of SVD
May the darkness of sin
and the night of unbelief vanish before the light of the Word
and the Spirit of grace
and may the Heart of Jesus live
in the hearts of all people.
(Saint Arnold Janssen)
