Four SVD Synodal Bishops
Visit Collegio del Verbo
Taking a respite from their heavy
schedule at the 15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops,
focused on the theme of "Young People, the Faith, and Vocational
Discernment,” the four SVD Synodal Bishops from Africa and Asia visited
Collegio del Verbo Divino on October 11.
Present were Bishop Emmanuel
Fianu, SVD of the Diocese of Ho, Ghana, Metropolitan Archbishop Zeferino
Zeca Martins, SVD of the Archdiocese of Huambo, Angola, Bishop Leopoldo
Jaucian, SVD from the Diocese of Bangued, Philippines, and Archbishop
John Barwa, SVD of the Archdiocese of Cuttack-Bhubaneswar, India.
Rector of the Collegio del Verbo Divino, Nicolas Espinosa, festively
presented our Bishop confreres to the community with a sense of pride in
having them with us.
A united thought was that our SVD Synodal Bishops
are not only representing their respective episcopal conferences but in
a way also representing our Society. The Synod theme on Youth is akin to
the Priorities Ad Extra of the Society, which also emphasize the Youth.
