''Go... and tell them'' Mission Congress at Kondadaba

By Br K. Elisha (Guntur Diocese)
Hyderabad, Oct. 29. A two day seminar on the theme of mission was organised at St John's Regional Seminary, Kondadaba from October 28 to 29, 2010 for the students of the Diocesan Philosophate.  Fr Anikuzhkattil Jose sdb from Shillong, Meghalaya was the resource person for these two days of enriching sharing and enlightening about the concept of mission, especially from the context of the Catholic Church.
Being from the North-East of India where missionary endeavour takes a different slant, Fr A.L. Jose was able to help the Seminarians seen the different modalities of carrying out the one mission of Jesus Christ.  The Brothers loved this comparative study and analysis as it helped them much to acquire new skills and also evaluate operational techniques for greater efficacy and results.

Citing relevant Church documents and texts supporting the primary mission of the Mother Church, the animator, helped the Brothers focus their attention on the theme under discussion.  Using convincing narratives and examples, he quelled the myth that mission is meant only for the ordained.  He time and again emphasised the point that every heart with Christ is a missionary and every heart without one is a mission field.  Thus more than initiating the students to the whole concept of 'mission' the animator aptly helped them get a holistic view of the same.

On the second day morning Fr AL Jose had a surprise in store as the community specially prayed and celebrated his Silver Jubilee of Ordination (Jan. 4, 1986).  It is interesting to note that Fr AL Jose is the 10th child of 15 children, of whom 6 are Priests (one of them a Bishop as well) and 4 are Nuns. Armed with the motto 'To spread God's love like sweet fragrance', Fr Jose is presently the Rector of the Salesian Training Centre in Shillong.  He is also the visiting professor at Sacred Heart Theological College, Shillong.
