Thursday May 3, 2012 Daily Blog John W Previous 2012 blogs
A nice email yesterday from a dear friend in Sydney:
Hello Fr. John
Just a quick message to say how much I enjoy your Blog.
Very informative. Regards, K. (Thank you, K!)
This week I am on annual OMI (Oblate) retreat
in Hong Kong
...doing this website job in break after lunch
Retreat is being given by an Indian nun, Sr
Inigo Joachim of the Sisters of St Paul, an Indian congregation.
Sister is a former Superior-General of the congregation. A sample of her thinking can be found on today's menu "Empowering women....".
More about her can be found by putting "Sr Inigo Joachim" into www.googl.com
Sister is easily the best speaker in my 27
years of Oblate retreats in HK!
She's on fire with love for the Scriptures and for the poor (she visits prisons 5 days a week)
One of her quotes (from Fr Ron Rolheiser omi! in
"Nobody gets to Heaven without a letter of reference from the poor"
I'm hoping this website will have more from Sr Inigo in the near future
