Sharing faith experiences – II - Luke Rodrigues, S.J
Hello and 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 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. Last week Father Luke spoke about his life, faith experiences, and his mission. And today, in the second part of this interview, he speaks about his personal life and his encounter with the youth around the world.
Our Faithful Witness of today, Jesuit Father Luke Rodrigues of Mumbai, India shares with us his personal life, faith experiences, and his encounter with the Youth. Father Luke, welcome back to Vatican Radio.
A very personal question. Have you encountered any difficult situation where your faith came as a help?
And possibly your mother must have thought her mission is to bring up her children!
Now back to your ministry. How many young people are there in your organization since there is a feeling that youth are not interested in religious matters?
Where you have youth, they could become the catalyst, right?
Possibly the modern social media might help in that?
What is your message for the people of India or South Asia?
Thank you Father Luke. That was the second and final part of the interview with Father Luke Rodrigues, a Jesuit priest from Mumbai, India.
