POPE FRANCIS, CARDINAL RIBAT, PNG - AND OTHER STORIES AROUND THE MSC WORLD.
A Synod moment - in case the photo is not too clear, the Pope's vest reads 'I Love PNG' With Cardinal John Ribat MSC and the new Bishop of Kerema, Pedro Centeno Baquero SDB. Looks as though the Bishops assailed the Pope on behalf of PNG.
And a moment with the Superior General, Abzalon.
Meanwhile a new MSC bishop: Appointment of titular bishop of Dumio and auxiliary of the archdiocese of Trujillo, Peru
The Holy Father appointed as titular bishop of Dumio and auxiliary of the archdiocese of Trujillo, Peru, the Rev. Fr. Timoteo Solórzano Rojas, M.S.C., currently parish priest of the parish of “Santiago Apóstol” in the territorial prelature of Caravelí.

November 6th saw the first celebration of the newly-beatified MSC Spanish Martyrs.
Speaking of suffering for faith and mission, this week saw the deporting of Sion Sister, Pat Fox, by President Dutete from the Philippines. She was supported by so many in the Philippines where she had worked for decades, including the MSC Province there.
PS, there are differing demands in ministry. Peter Hendriks shares cadet activity in Darwin.
