CELL PHONE AND CELL LIFE
forum
360° VIEW
Monks of old lived in little cells. Now most have moved from such cells to bigger rooms. Some young students still sleep in cells. The word cell today is increasingly used for cells in a jail. I have no intention at all to talk about that unfortunate use of the word.

Silence and the Word
forum

Christmas is a time for celebration; a celebration that very often could turn noisy, distracting and meaningless. But, in fact, the celebration of Christmas is for an event that happened so silently in history.

A Confession FB-style
forum
360° VIEW
I have a confession to make. I am a reluctant latecomer to the universe of Facebook. I was very hesitant to join FB... not that I didn`t like the concept of FB but it looked (still does look) strange for me. At the same time, I cannot but admire the marvellous technological creativity behind FB or MySpace and the various social network services on the net with the capacity of an almost `infinite` and `universal` range of contacting people (provided they are part of the service).

Don Bosco Relics Tour
forum
360° VIEW
Here are some stray thoughts...RELICS of Don Bosco could be a far neater word then Urn and Casket. They preferred to use the term Relics. I have been talking to the US guys who planned it very well mobilizing lay people and enlisting professionals to cover every aspect of the tour and make it to their maximum advantage... (since they are too few SDBs were forced to enlist others... and the miracle happened).

Back being a student - A Good Way to Be(gin) Teaching
forum
360° VIEW
The following is an improvement of what I wrote to a struggling teacher-friend of mine, with my experience of being a student all over again. Perhaps it will be useful to some. Perhaps to some practical-trainees. Back being a student is torturous? Maybe! Sitting in a class, trying to understand something out of it? Not a total failure. Back being a student helps one to be a better teacher, or at least try something different.
