It is January and in most of the United States this is the cold season.  So too for our missioners in places like Northern China.  But in other parts of the world not so.  In East Africa, for example it is hot as the people anxiously await the rainy season.  In South America it is summer time. As seasons vary throughout the world so too does the nature of service to God’s Mission of love, mercy and compassion that can bring creativity and new life to an often troubled world.  Here above is a photo of Fr. Mike Bassano living among displaced persons in a South Sudanese camp.  He is there simply to say: “You are not alone  nor forgotten.” So simple, yet so profound!
