Witnesses: Annalena Tonelli, Mother Teresa of Somalia

An Italian lawyer and social activist, she volunteered to the service of the poor and sick for 33 years in Africa. At an early age, Annalena Tonelli (1943 – 2003) was attracted by the example of the radical Christianity of Blessed Charles de Foucauld and, in an extraordinary way, imitated his example.

Mons. Miguel Sebastian, du Tchad

L’année 2019 se termine avec cette bonne nouvelle mais toute l’année a été très riche pour moi. J’ai continué à m’enrichir des nombreuses rencontres individuelles, chez moi, et ecclésiales lors de mes visites pastorales. Rencontrer les autres est très important et j’arrive à connaître, petit à petit, tous les gens

World Mission Day 2019. Catholic Church Statistics 2019

This missionary mandate touches us personally: I am a mission, always; you are a mission, always; every baptized man and woman is a mission. People in love never stand still: they are drawn out of themselves; they are attracted and attract others in turn.

Why Pope Francis’ focus on mission makes Catholics uncomfortable

What is the source of the tensions and conflicts we have in the church today? I believe the reason for the uneasiness is the pope’s emphasis on mission. There is a profound difference between a church that is a nest or a niche, in which one can find peace, tranquility and seeming stability, and a church that sees itself as missionary.

Vocation Story: Uganda – The courage to leap

Many things occur in life outside of our direct control or effort to make them happen. When you revisit them through your memory, you discover that what mattered most is not that you tried hard, but that you said “yes” to what you felt it was right, and you had the courage to jump, not knowing where you would land.

OGF 6/2019 Need for structural changes in Mission

The world is in transformation, and so is mission today. We all notice the changes in the world around us, in the fields of digitali­zation, globalization, communication, as well as some negative effects such as: the com­plexity of the digital world, the problem of cultural and religious identity, and the loneli­ness of modern human beings.

Lettre de Pâques de Mgr Miguel Sebastián, nouvel évêque de Sarh

Il y a une chose claire pour moi : je ne peux pas me taire devant certaines situations ! Lors de mes dernières homélies à la cathédrale, qui sont retransmises par la radio diocésaine, j’ai déjà dénoncé ce qui se passe.  Je sais que ma voix sera comme celle du prophète qui crie dans le désert, mais je continuerai à crier.

South Sudan: Blessings in disguise

“We are three Comboni Missionaries who serve a parish of around 25,000 Catholics spread over about eighty villages. Any place can become a chapel. We missionaries divide and visit these places as best as we can, usually two or three times per year. All journeys are on foot because there are no roads for vehicles in the county.”

[Un regard critique sur la religion en Afrique] : L’Afrique demeure une terre de mission

L’Afrique est souvent, un peu trop précipitamment, présentée comme une terre de mission aguerrie, désormais prête à exporter son dynamisme de foi aux anciennes puissances missionnaires, notamment celles d’Europe.

A glass of water for the Kafir

While “salvation” and “paradise” are both held sacred and exclusively for believers by Muslims and Christians over the years, the unmistakable reality for all people of goodwill is that the invitation is universal. The janna of the Koran, the paradise of the Bible, the kingdom of Allah – God, is for every human being.

One family with non-Christians

Violence committed against each other, unfortunately, emphasizes the stark differences among believers of different religions. But it is also not surprising that acts of mercy and love, the characteristics of one and the same God, can bind people of different religions together.

Evangelical Fidelity and personal satisfaction.
Our religious profession implies two dimensions: our life and our mission. In our life, it appears impossible to mark the boundaries between life and mission since everything in our is based on the evangelizing mission.

L’Évangile, dans son essence, est totalement incapable de blesser personne. Si l’on va au cœur de l’Évangile, qui est le cœur de la Trinité, si l’on entre dans cette pauvreté selon l’esprit, si l’on apporte aux autres tout simplement un espace d’amour où l’on est agenouillé devant le mystère de leur âme, pour la laisser s’épanouir en Dieu, il ne peut plus être question d’offense.

San Daniele Comboni (1831-1881)


Combonianum è stato una pubblicazione interna di condivisione sul carisma di Comboni. Assegnando questo nome al blog, ho voluto far rivivere questo titolo, ricco di storia e patrimonio carismatico.
Il sottotitolo Spiritualità e Missione vuole precisare l’obiettivo del blog: promuovere una spiritualità missionaria.

Combonianum was an internal publication of sharing on Comboni’s charism. By assigning this name to the blog, I wanted to revive this title, rich in history and charismatic heritage.
The subtitle
Spirituality and Mission wants to specify the goal of the blog: to promote a missionary spirituality.

Sono un comboniano affetto da Sla. Ho aperto e continuo a curare questo blog (tramite il puntatore oculare), animato dal desiderio di rimanere in contatto con la vita del mondo e della Chiesa, e di proseguire così il mio piccolo servizio alla missione.
I miei interessi: tematiche missionarie, spiritualità (ho lavorato nella formazione) e temi biblici (ho fatto teologia biblica alla PUG di Roma)

I am a Comboni missionary with ALS. I opened and continue to curate this blog (through the eye pointer), animated by the desire to stay in touch with the life of the world and of the Church, and thus continue my small service to the mission.
My interests: missionary themes, spirituality (I was in charge of formation) and biblical themes (I studied biblical theology at the PUG in Rome)
