FR. DESIRE SALAJO, S.M.A.: CHRISTMAS GREETINGS FROM WEST AFRICA

Joy to the World! We have received the New Born here also in our heart. I was in Niger and in the North of Benin for Christmas and the New Year. My confreres were happy to see me in their various missions. It is for them a sign of hope that they are not alone in all those missions given to them by God Himself. I was happy to see them full of strength but with fears also because of ‘Islamic menaces or risk of kidnapping’, especially the white missionaries. I assured them of my prayers and my support. 

(Fr. Salako, S.M.A.)
