A Fraternal Visit to the General Minister's Village!!!!!!

 General Minister has been speaking a lot about his village and the villagers....a village of 300 people...Catholics and protestants....living in harmony and peace.....a paradise on earth,....all over green grass in summer....cows grazing....very few young men and women to be found.....a quite retreat place......it was a wonderful experience..... 
 Everyone was so much taken up that they wanted some photos for their albums.....
 small springs flowing down the hill......looks like your dream place....what we see in some post cards...you get to see here....

 We walked to one friend of General Minister.....the house is in midst of mountains......a small river flowing by....

 It is good to be here.....Fr. Felicissimo is a friar of swiss friar who accompanied us all through...he is 88 and still strong...he walks everyday.....offers masses for the villagers.....great soul....

 It is green now and after 15 days it will be all covered with snow.....



 While we were in the villages...so many old friends for the General minister came to say hello to him...most of them are senior citizens who are farmers....some have retired from their government jobs and built houses for themselves.....to be quite and enjoy the peace......
