Francis effect....Mill Hill effect

Francis Effect…. MHM Effect echoes the Francis Effect –
the result of the sum of all we do in the service of our Lord Jesus Christ:
reaching out, serving the abandoned and those in most need, with humility and joy, with the smell of the sheep full upon them.
The vision that Pope Francis has for the Church is that it “must be a place of mercy freely given, where everyone can feel welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged to live the good life of the Gospel.”

Chapel Karunapuram

Inaurguration of new chapel at Karunapuram, India

The inauguration of our chapel at the Formation Centre at Karunapuram (India) was an occasion of great joy. The days of labor and hope had finally come to fruition. We had dreamed of it for years, to have our own proper space for liturgy and prayer. So no words could sufficiently capture our jubilation and satisfaction. ‘We finally have a chapel, and a beautiful one at that’ !!!. Such was our common unexpressed feeling.

  • Guido Gockel mhm returns to the diocese of Miri in Borneo

    Saturday, 2nd August, 2014

    Since my return from Europe I have started to work on my new parish “St. Dominic”. I had the first parish council meeting and got myself installed in the office with the bare essentials - an office desk, easy chair, settee (so I can receive guests), printer, and my own laptop and intent connection through my mobile phone. The parish area has no phone and internet connections because there is not enough demand for it. Within the next few weeks I will have started a schedule for daily Mass, regular hospital visitation, a St. Vincent de Paul Society and Mothers Prayers.

  • Amanecer, a pioneering project for street children in Cochabamba, Bolivia

    Thursday, 17th July, 2014

    Fr Theo Raaijmakers mhm writes: "I am worried about Luis (10) who is often alone at home with his father and the father drinks all the time; there is no mother in the house, and when the father goes out to drink, Luis often goes with him.... I am also worried about Moisés (15) who is now living at home with his father and his brother; there is no mother there either; Moisés is very intelligent, but if we don't do something very soon, things will go wrong with Moisés and also with his brother. I know, I know: we cannot do everything, and I also get only 24 hours a day (there are no exceptions)... But we would like to do as much as possible, we would like to give as many young people as possible a chance for a better future".

    In contrast to China’s improved situation, the situation across the frontier in Vietnam seems more like the China of 10 years ago. This is especially true of the handicapped, a special problem in this country. Indeed this newsletter is an urgent appeal for help in just one of Vietnam’s provinces, Thanh Hoa.

  • Tackling the multi-headed dragon of corruption in Uganda


    At a recent community debate at The Clocktower policestation in Kampala fifteen police officers and twenty community leaders faced off in what initially threatened to become a hard hitting confrontation on maltreatment and extortion (police) and the hiding of suspected criminals (public). But after the initial outbursts the tension eased and the result has been a net reduction in level of extortion and the crime rate in the area. Both parties expressed the wish to continue the dialogue.
