CCFMC News Nr. 1, 2016

„Merciful like the father“– this is the motto of the holy year of mercy from 8 December 2015 to 20 November 2016. Upon that we are introduced by Hadrian W. Koch in his editorial. - “In the beatitudes of the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:7) read as follows: Blessed are the merciful: for they will be shown mercy. And the example of the Good Samaritan Jesus has the teachers of the law find their own answer to the question on who is closest to him: the one who had mercy on the man who fell into the hands of the robbers (cf. Luke 10, 37).

CCFMC full of life, idealism and commitment

„In the first days of December of last year 2015 a CCFMC-course took place in Bangui/ Central Africa under very special signs. It happen simultaneous with the visit of Pope Francis there but could still be realized under enormous difficulties thanks to the commitment and idealism of many CCFMC-Co-workers. Sister Gladys (Provincial superior of the Tertiary Sisters and CCFMC Coordinator of Cameroon) wrote a report for the news.”

And Hermann Borg OFM has good news from Kenya: “We Franciscans in Kenya are looking back on 20 years of successful work with the CCFMC-course in Kenya and in English speaking Africa. On 10 July 1997 it was bindingly agreed, that the CCFMC has created the foundation of the association of all Franciscan communities in Kenya.”
