Encounters with Silence - Karl Rahner

Only in love can I find You, my God. In love the gates of my soul
spring open, allowing me to breath a new air of freedom and forget
my own petty self. In love my whole being streams forth out of the
rigid confines of narrowness and anxious self-assertion, which
make me a prisoner of my own poverty and emptiness. In love all
the powers of my soul flow out toward You, wanting never more to
return, but to lose themselves completely in You, since by Your love
You are the inmost center of my heart, closer to me than I am to
myself.

Karl Rahner, from Encounters with Silence

Feast of St. Ignatius at OCJC

On Tuesday the 31st of July, Ocer Campion Jesuit College welcomed to its campus visitors from all over Gulu District for the feast of St. Ignatius. It was quite a successful event, and the most celebrated guest was the archbishop of the Gulu archdiocese. The teachers and students started preparations weeks in advantage, and the day before the feast was extremely busy. However, all the hard work paid off in the end, as all in attendance seemed to truly enjoy themselves. Most of the guests had arrived by 10:30 am, when the celebrations started with a mass, which was given by the archbishop himself. The altar boys were truly honored, and each took one or two photos with the archbishop afterwards. Then, those who were not familiar with Ocer’s beautiful campus were given a tour. Until lunch the guests mostly mingled around. Students posed for photographs, introduced themselves to the archbishop and other visitors, and assisted the teachers who were preparing lunch. These teachers did a great job, as a delicious lunch of rice, chapatti, matoke, peas, chicken, beef, and soda was served. As lunch was being cleared, the students began presentations of songs, poems and Acholi dances. Afterwards a group of dancers from our workers also performed and were joined by students and teachers. This was great fun for everybody in spite of a looming rainstorm, which broke right after the festivities ended around 4:00 p.m. It seemed as though God was not going to allow rain to interrupt what was a wonderful day at Ocer Campion Jesuit College.
