Saturday – home but Rome again soon – SVD

It was great yesterday to have my first meeting with the SVD – ‘Society of the Divine Word’ in English – but the word order of course changes for different languages. In one country they’re known as the ‘Verdis’ so i’m sure they won’t mind me referring to them in this way.

I enjoyed meeting Father Michael SVD in Kilburn, London. But as their founder Fr Arnold Janssen (1837-1909) was from Germany they are centrally governed – today from a building in Rome.

Fr Arnold once met and advised Fr Daniel Comboni (1831 – 1881). It is my privilege to meet their followers.

Have a blessed w/e.
