MY SUMMER TIME IN VIETNAM: SWEET HOME!

Brother Hoang Nguyen, A.A.I had an opportunity to go back to visit my home country, Vietnam during 2014’s summer. It was good for me to be back after many years away from home and also it was a great time for me to be allowed to do my apostolate work during summer there. Although I was born and grew up in Saigon, when I came back, I realized that things have changed a lot since I was away from the city. I spent three weeks with my family. During that time, I just paid some visits to the altar-servers in the parish by joining with them in their weekly meetings. I was asked by them to give a short sharing of the Gospel in their meeting, because I was actually the one who initiated it when I was in charge of them, and that custom has been keeping up to the present.

Assumptionist High School in Buenos Aires Launches Exchange Program at Assumption College, Worcester

Students from Instituto San Roman with their chaperones

On Saturday, July 12th, 2014, forty-two high school juniors from Instituto San Roman, an Assumptionist high school in Buenos Aires, Argentina, arrived at Assumption College in Worcester to inaugurate a four-week summer program in English. The program is the realization of four years of discussion, planning, and organization. The idea for this initiative goes back to a visit of the College in 2010 by parents of two current students and friends of the Assumptionists, one of whom, the father, is an alumnus of the high school and the other, the mother, a member of the campus ministry team. In proposing the program, they saw it not only as an effective way to enhance the language skills of their students but also to lay the groundwork for a global network of initiatives among Assumptionist-sponsored schools.

Mary

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary by TitianBy Pat Haggerty

What is your devotion to Mary like?  Do you have one?   Do you turn to Mary as an intercessor to the Lord for you?

As we celebrate the glorious feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, I have asked myself the above questions---and more.  Do I pray the rosary enough?  Do I turn to Mary, as our Mother, for help and consolation?  Do I pray the “Magnificat” as my own prayer of resignation to our God?

Devotion to Mary can take many forms.  My own mother prays the rosary with Mother Angelica every night as she watches the broadcast on EWTN.  My aunt used to say this prayer in her time of desperation:  “Oh, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.”  Only she said it in French, which to her had much more impact. (O, Marie, conçus sans pêchés, priez pour nous qui avons recours à vous.)  My own devotion to Mary was reinforced during elementary school.  We learned the beauty of the rosary and we celebrated that beauty with a May procession every year.
