Asunción - PARAGUAY
CA-MSC is the American MSC Conference (Conferencia Americana – MSC). In the past CA-MSC was called CAL (Conferencia America Latina) - MSC. It began in 1973 when they realized that our confreres were working hard and well, but had no communication among them. They were isolated from one another.
Recently, CA-MSC organized a meeting held in Paraguay from 17 to 22 January 2011. Thirty one confreres were present, and Fr. Mark was among those who attended the meeting. This 12th CA-MSC Meeting was held on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the prophetic voice of Fr. Antonio Montesinos O.P against colonization in 1511.

At the 2010 Australian Provincial Chapter, there was a desire expressed for more international collaboration between provinces and regions. We are seeking ways of fostering this. After the 'Read More' rubric below, there are two reports of collaboration from the website of CFA, the Communications Foundation for Asia, the flagship for media and communication in the congregation. (Readers of these reports will be tolerant as the reports refer to the news editor of this Australian Misacor site.)

FR HUBERT LINCKENS MSC
Excerpts from To the Ends of the Earth by Francis Baum MSC
Born in Wijlre, Holland, on 29th January, 1861, Peter Joseph Hubert Linckens was the second child of his father‟s second marriage. His father, John Martin, had four children by his first wife, who died at the age of thirty-one. Hubert, as he was called, had three younger siblings. He was only eight when his mother died. So the father was assisted in his care of the family by a housekeeper, who wasn‟t very popular with the children. After some years, Hubert‟s younger, fourteen year old sister took over the household.

Abbott John Klassen OSB visited Australia in 2010. He reflects on the future of religious orders in the Church - and takes his views from the Prophets that our perspective should he hope.
Recall that the prophets not only announce to the people an end that the community cannot admit; they also proclaim a hope that the people can hardly believe. There are two dangers or temptations that arise in times of transition. The first is nostalgia, which is essentially a state of denial. The strategy of nostalgia denies that the loss has happened or is happening: with increasing desperation it attempts to cling to a way of life and of faith that are no more.
