Welcome to the July-December 2020 digest of news, views and activities from the ANZPPNG Lasallian District. It is a compilation, as usual, of "Outlook" articles, blog posts and website. Presented is a striking testament to the energy, hard work and creativity of so many of us, who are "associated", in our Lasallian field of "human and Christian education of youth" - Partners across our four nations.
You have probably experienced that "Great Things are Possible" the worldwide Lasallian theme for 2020 (See: Great Things Are Possibe - La Salle Worldwide - lasalle.org - Rome) , and yes, this linked reflection paper is in English!
As we enter 2021, we are invited to focus on our part in "the Miracle" ahead our collective vision, passion and horizon in our Lasallian involvement. The heading above is the Lasallian theme for 2021. (See: You are Part of the Miracle La Salle Worldwide | lasalleorg | Rome)
The miracle, of course, is God's work of grace: "the work is Yours", as John Baptist de La Salle said so memorably. Over the next year, may we Lasallians sense that we are partners with Someone, in some burning Cause, with many others, that create us as "part of the miracle". The miracle may be seeing enlightenment in the eyes of a confused student, linking up a young unemployed person with other helping agencies or furthering provision of health education to disadvantaged girls and young women. Whatever the new year hopefully brings us refreshed energy in our work, and joy in giving.
