The Power of LANGUAGE

 I have been learning Spanish Language for last one month. The school where i am studying is in Pamplona and has dedicated many years in teaching Spanish language. A good teacher makes you to understand that any Language in the world has power. A power which connects to another whom you dont know. A power that takes you over to the other culture and history. A power that makes you to understand the other better. I have understood that languages have power that goes beyond our understanding but we have to realise that this power is released only in communication. Two people communicating in a language known to each other can be contended and happy people because they comprehend each other's feelings and person. 

Missionaries did understand this power of Language and that is how they were able to evangelise the world....those who did not learn the language always had problems in the mission.....language of the other takes you to their heart and mind.....they accept you as you are because you speak like one of them.....even it may not be perfect yet the other feels at home in your company.....

 St. Francis Xavier when he travelled all over to the mission, I am sure he learned those most difficult languages to communicate God's love......he shared his experiences of the Divine and the word of God only through a language which the people understood......
