Recently I have encountered a few stories of vocation from... where else but Indonesia! It is heartening to hear that although religious freedom is a little more than lip service in Indonesia, vocations abound and our people respond generously, in lands faraway from home!
Here are some I've heard:
- Denny Wahyudi: a seminarian of the Xaverian Missionary studying in Chicago, recently took his final profession and was ordained a deacon. He will be ordained into the priesthood sometime this year.
- This morning I heard from a priest at mass that two SSCC brothers (Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary) were getting ordained today in Bandung.
- This afternoon I learned from the Dominican Friars that one of the eight novices is Indonesian: Bro. Bernard Timothy
Pray for them and for my country, that more will respond to His call generously!
