Our Reality

Personal Reality

Continuing from yesterday’s topic – Analysis of Reality, the third day of the seminar began by dwelling first (in the morning) on Personal Reality, facilitated by the team from AJSC (Arnold Janssen Spirituality Center) – Sr. Celestina Tangan, SSpS and Fr. Renato Leite Gnatta, SVD.

Fr. Renato and Sr. Tina invited the participants to go deeper into their understanding of who they really are and the role they play in the mission as coordinators of JPIC.

Summary of Content

Reflection on human reality: we are much more than our bodies, our emotions, our national identity and culture. We are people loved unconditionally by God.
