Faith experiences, Luke Rodrigues, S.J - I
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. Their unique stories inspire us to be rooted in our faith. God calls each one of us to inspire our brothers and sisters and to be witnesses of our faith.
The Faithful Witness of this week is Luke Rodrigues, a Jesuit priest from Mumbai, India, working in Rome as Coordinator of Christian life communities around the world. He was born and brought up in a traditional Catholic family in Bombay. He is the second of the three children, and incidentally all the three are priests and one is recently appointed bishop. Father Luke speaks about his life, faith experiences, and his mission.
Our Faithful Witness of today, Jesuit Father Luke Rodrigues of Mumbai, India shares with us his own faith experiences, his missionary work, and more.
Tell us briefly about you.
Who or what inspired you to become a priest and a Jesuit?
What is the role of your family in your vocation since all three of you became priests?
So, it sounds like you are influenced not so much by what you heard about Christian faith, but rather the faith in action! Now Mumbai being a cosmopolitan city, you encounter a lot people of other faith, how did their faith affected you or yours affected them?
Since then how do you express this spirituality in your ministry?
Your current ministry – working for Christian Life Communities, how do you help them to practice this spirituality?
Tell us Ignatian Charism in a nut shell.
