Laisse ta marque sur la Croix du Christ !

Benjamin NSENGIYUMVA SJ
Universidad de Comillas, Espagne, MADRID

« J'avais l'impression de participer à un rite païen », s'exclamait le jeune Xavier à propos de la scène du Gethsémani qu'on venait de célébrer la nuit du Jeudi Saint, au coeur d'une forêt engloutie dans l'obscurité absolue, où seul l'éclat de quelques flambeaux éclairaient la Croix et les lectures de la Passion. C'était dans un petit village de Celorio, à la côte de la Mer Cantabrique, au pied des hautes montagnes du Nord de l'Espagne, qui est l'un des nombreux sites où les Jésuites organisent une expérience de Semaine Sainte pour des centaines de jeunes étudiants de Collèges et Universités. Ici on n'a pas simplement célébré la Pâques comme fête annuelle importante de la vie chrétienne qui nous marque d'une joie saisonnière, mais plutôt comme une expérience vivante de proximité profonde au mystère pascal.

What is a "conflict mineral"? The recently-approved EU legislation on responsible mineral sourcing defines a conflict mineral as tantalum, tin, tungsten or gold which originates from any region in the world affected by, and which is used to finance, armed conflict. Equivalent US provisions in the Dodd-Frank Act includes a wider list of minerals, but limits the conflict area to that of the Central African Great Lakes Region, chiefly the eastern Kivu district of DRC.

Seven Miles So Near, yet So far

By Fr Clyde Muropa SJ

Luke 24: 13- - 35

Anyone of us could be that close yet far from Jerusalem, the arena of events! You could be that close to where the Lord wants you to be, yet that far that, if not careful, events will take place "in your own vicinity" without you noticing.
