The Dehonians’ General Communications Office recently published its electronic newsletter. Topics include the future vision for Dehonian ministry in the German Province, as well as Europe in general; a feature on Fr. Joseph Famerée, SCJ, who was named emeritus at the Catholic University of Louvain; a story about a Dehonian center in Venezuela; and an interview with Professor Myriam Wijlens, professor of Canon Law at the University of Erfurt, in Germany.

“I have known the Priests of the Sacred Heart for, I think, more than 35 years,” said Prof. Wijlens. “Your Generalate in Rome has become a very significant place for me. Some of our Vatican commissions have met in your house; and it is really wonderful to experience your hospitality.”

On September 7, she was one of the presenters of the preparation document for the Synod titled “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission.”
 
“What was so beautiful about the presentation, and what I really appreciated, was that on the podium when we presented the document, there was Cardinal Mario Grech, there was another Bishop, then there was a sister, she and the bishop are undersecretaries,” said Prof. Wijlens, noting that besides the bishop and religious sister, “there was a priest, and I was there as a lay person. So, on the podium the People of God, in all of their diversity, were really represented. I thought that that in itself was a statement of how the Church is moving into a different way of thinking, and a different way of acting.”
