Sharing faith experiences – K.J. Joseph, S.J
Welcome to our special program on the Year of Faith, THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, a series on the lives of Inspiring People and Witnesses of faith in the Catholic Church from around the world. These are people who lived their ordinary lives in extraordinary ways. They are examples of great fortitude and virtue. Their unique stories inspire us to be rooted in our faith. God calls each one of us today to inspire our brothers and sisters and to be witnesses of our faith.
The Faithful Witness of this week is Father K.J. Joseph, a Jesuit missionary working in Darjeeling in the state of West Bengal in India. He has been teaching in St. Joseph College, North Point in Darjeeling for about 20 years. Last year he took a break from his teaching profession to work among the people of British Guyana. He speaks about his life, faith experiences, and the people of Guyana.
Our Faithful Witness of today, Jesuit Father K.J. Joseph of Darjeeling shares with us his own faith experiences, his missionary work, and the people of British Guyana. Father Joseph a hearty welcome to Vatican Radio.
