Have you seen it lately?

In August, the general communications office released a redesigned website for the congregation. Be sure to stop by for a visit if you haven’t done so already. Although it has a new look, the address is the same:  https://www.dehoniani.org.
 
Recent posts include a letter from Fr. Carlos Luis Suarez Codorniú, SCJ, superior general, about Pope Francis’ recently released encyclical letter Fratelli Tutti.
 
“This new encyclical letter has a lot to say about our Dehonian life,” wrote Fr. Carlos Luis. “Fr. Dehon’s faith experience was similar to that of St. Francis. They both understood that ‘God is love; whoever remains in love remains in God and God remains in him’ (1Jn 4:16). This same experience of faith is also our experience of faith (cf. RL 9)… We cannot remain indifferent to the pressing invitation that Pope Francis addresses to each of us. We are called to have the open heart of the Good Samaritan to face ‘numerous related issues […] forcing us to see things in a new light and to develop new responses’ (FT 128): people migrating, humanitarian crises, the relationship between the East and West, globalization, social degradation, better politics, social dialogue, and the ecumenical and inter-religious journey.”
