On the Occasion of September 11, 2002 "Ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee" These words from the poet John Donne speak to us always as we wend our way through life's tribulations and trials. Mourning is often meant as much for us as it is for the loss of others. When we come together to mourn, we recognize in the depths of our being, our own frailty and weakness. We know in our hearts that we are all on the road from birth to death- we simply don't know whether our road is a long one or a short one. We tremble in our hearts and souls with the fear of not being in control of our own destiny. So we attempt to live with the illusion that we can control our own路 destiny. Today, we are living in a world of fear. We are shocked when our false securities are threatened. We assume that we are immune from the evils that touch the rest of the world. Somehow we believe that we are God's chosen people and are therefore immune from injustice and violence. Our very foundations that we have so carefully constructed are shaken. Historically, leaders in all times and places have recognized the surest way to solidify their hold on power would be to exacerbate the fears of others who are different in appearance, belief or culture. In our humanity we find it very easy to blame others for the evil in the world and the problems that we experience. It is most difficult to accept responsibility for our own lives without somehow blaming our parents, our teachers, or the amorphous other for everything that goes wrong in our lives. We tend to forget that doing the wrong thing is often failing to have the courage to do the right thing. How often when we hear racist or sexist jokes do we simply either laugh or move on without saying anything because we are afraid of offending the person telling the joke? Jesus taught us not to be afraid of doing the right thing, even if it meant giving up your life. God calls us to holiness. It is in responding to this call, even when afraid, that we act with faith. To act in faith is to recognize that all of creation is holy and sacred and that we are called to participate in God's ongoing creation. We are connected by the spirit of a loving God that holds us all in His hand. The basis of our faith is our conviction of the reality of the Incarnation of God in the world and in human flesh. This participation calls us to act with courage, knowing that God is with us throughout all of the pain and turmoi I of life. God is with us in what seems to us to be chaos and turmoil. The message of Jesus is that in order to enter into the fullness of life, we are called to enter first of all into the tension of life; not to run and hide. That tension is necessary for the creation of all that is, including human life. Jesus teaches us that we are all active participants in that ongoing creation and to be at peace with the reality that in all things, God is present. At the same time, Jesus calls us to enter fu lly into our I ife. If we are afraid to die, then we are also afraid to I ive. The ongoing creation of God, in all of its diversity and grandeur, connects in the person of Jesus Christ - God and flesh made one, uniting all that is. "any man's death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee." Wishing you a great year, In St. Viator

Colombia Campaign 2002. He cited statistics from their studies of Colombia. We also heard from a panel of four Colombian Viatorians: Frs. Pedro Herrera, Luis Eduardo Lopez, Brian Cooper, and Albeyro Vanegas. Each described his ministry and the needs of his consituency: Fr. Brian Cooper lives and works in Libano. He works with displaced squatters in the "invasion barrios". Homes have tin roofs, and a hole in the ground for a toilet. Children have many medical problems. They have begun a program where children who are registered for school get health check ups, supplies and food packages every month. 75 families get powdered milk for babies. There is already an improvement seen among the youngest children as a result of increased milk in their diet. They also started a lunch program at school. Presently the lunch program feeds 150 children, Monday through Friday. Fr. Pedro Herrera is President of Coh~gio Antonio Maria Claret, a Libano primary and secondary school. The education provided is very high quality. However, in addition to the violence and poverty in the area, he says that catechism for children is lacking. Very few young people are getting married.

Instead, they live together, have their babies baptised, and perhaps " later encourage their children to make their First Communion. In many cases, the children do not come to church because the parents are not participating in the sacraments. Fr. Albeyro Vanegas is President of Coh~gio San Viator in Bogota. The Coh~gio population is around 1,200 for K-12. The



directly affects the daily lives of ordinary people in Colombia.

Colegio saw a need for a preschool and started Coh~gio Louis Querbes. This school serves children 3 and under who live in a nearby poor neighborhood. Coh~gio San Viator sends teachers and students as volunteers to help with the children. Everyday the children receive a hot meal. Finally, Fr. Luis Eduardo Lopez is the Pastor of San Basilio Magno Parish in Bogota. This parish of 12,000 families is also 12 Colombian Viatorians join the Founding Father 路 路 hb h 00 d James Crilly, CSV, the Provincial, and Assistant ' m a poo~ ne~g or . 路 Provincial following the Assembly Liturgy, July 9, 2002. The pansh IS very active

and sponsors many programs for the parishioners. Fr. Lopez needs to build a new church. The present church was built on land not owned by the diocese and the owners have demanded the return of their land. Despite the crisis, each of these Viatorians indicated that the Colombians they minister to are peaceful and joyful people. They help one another. They have many needs but are so thankful for their meager blessings. At the end of Assembly, we agreed that there is a need to change the American view of Colombia. Drug usage in the U.S. directly affects the daily lives of ordinary people in Colombia. This truth needs to be disseminated in the U.S. The people of Colombia want peace and security for themselves and their children. It will take many years. FARC, ELN, AUC, and AFC, continue fighting for control of Colombia and her people. Together, U.S. and Colombian Viatorians are resolved to continue to build up these communities of faith through education which promotes peace and justice.

Bogota: In January, Br. Carlos Ernesto Florez, CSV began his assignment in Bogota as Director of Vocations. He has experienced an increasing number of young men seeking information about religious life. Carlos reports that "at first I was intimidated by their probing questions about religious life and the problems experienced by young people in Colombia." He found that he must walk with these young men as a friend, together seeking answers to their questions. Br. Carlos Ernesto finds being Vocation Director in Colombia "very challenging" but "with prayer and trust in God" he will "open his heart and mind to young men searching for their vocation in life."

What is Vocation Ministry? by Fr. Dan Nolan, CSV Vocation Director

ocation Ministry is one way that God is working in our Church to continue to call Christian people to live their baptismal commitment by following the way of Jesus. God calls us to use the gifts we have received for the good ofGod's people. This m1mstry encourages a process of discernment on how it is that God calls us to live and to serve using these gifts. This vital ministry is one way that we continue the mission of Jesus to proclaim the Good News, and invite others to join us in a life of service to God. Each Viatorian is called to participate in vocation ministry. "By the way we live the Gospel and carry out our mission, each of us and each local community should be a sign and example, inviting others to follow Christ in religious life (CSV Constitution #26)." Vocation ministry is a collaborative effort of all Viatorians. We also invite all with whom we minister and serve to join us in this important ministry. As Vocation Director, I hope to lead the effort to invite men to join the Clerics of St. Viator. Along with working with individuals interested in a deeper discernment of their call, I will also be involved in our parishes and schools promoting vocation awareness.


Together, let us continue to pray for vocations, and equally important, let us continue to encourage and invite young men to serve God and the Church as Viatorian brothers or priests. Anyone interested in information about becoming a Viatorian can reach me in the Vocation office, 1212 E. Euclid St. , Arlington Heights, IL 60004, by phone 847-398-0685 , or by email
