Dear General Council Members

I am a confrere from the Hyderabad province and interested in the congregation. In the gospel today Jesus says, ``If anyone wants to be first, he must make himself last of all and servant of all`` (Mk. 9, 30-37). I wish Fr Angel Ferdandez Artime, Francesco Cereda, Bro Jean Paul Muller and the rest of the general council members fulfil this call and unfulfilled mission of Jesus by their example at GC 28. My suggestions:

AN OPEN LETTER TO GC 28 PARTICIPANTS FROM THE SALESIAN SOCIAL FORUM
forum
360° VIEW
16 February 2020 Dear Confreres at GC 28, A group of confreres from Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad provinces in India had come together from 3rd to 5th February 2020 to discuss ways of making human existence and Salesian life more consistent and meaningful for us. Jesus who became human and remained human calls for conversion and to join him to usher in the kingdom of God. This call of Jesus is to everyone: the ordinary people, the anawim, to the Am`hares, the mob, the outcastes, every person of goodwill, even priests, scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees. The call to conversion is a call to a paradigm shift, of our thinking, life and relationships without losing the human identity. In choosing to set the example, by becoming human, and remaining human (Phil. 2, 7), Jesus` identity was not changed. He was born of a woman, totally dependent, was cared for by Mary and Joseph, grew up into a toddler, an adolescent and then an adult and ultimately, as Paul would put it in Ephesians 4, 12-13, into the fullness of humanity becoming a model for us to follow. All who are born human are called to grow into the fullness of humanity.

I received an invitation from Fr Eugene through Fr Ashok informing that the pioneers from the province were also being invited for the Silver Jubilee Celebrations of BOSCOM on December 5, 2019 at Dimapur. I wrote back: I appreciate the thoughts of Fr Eugene and the current BOSCOM team to think of those who have contributed in the past and to felicitate them. I am not in a position to come, yet I would like to reiterate what I used to say when I had the privilege of being part of BOSCOM as the delegate of the province and as representing dbdigits:

I am Katherine Christy, a visitor from the US, at Don Bosco Navajeevan, Ramanthapur (Hyderabad). Here`s my viewpoint of a rather enriching day involving children engaged in making the world a better place through their membership in the Human Rights Clubs. 27 April 2015 marked the conclusion of the Human Rights Clubs summer camp for Government school children hosted by PARA (People`s Action for Rural Awakening) and partnered by Don Bosco Mondo. In the past year, PARA has initiated 428 human rights clubs spread across 7 districts in 366 state run schools of the two states for Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. There is total membership of 20,259 students in the clubs.
