30 July 2016 – A group of Comboni missionaries who work in the English-speaking African countries has written an open letter of solidarity to other missionaries working in South Sudan and Eritrea. Both countries are facing “gruesome situations of extremely harsh political, economic and social suffering”. The letter is intended to be a “heartfelt word of encouragement and communion” with those serving the mission in the two conflict-affected countries.

30 July 2016 – (By Phillip Andruga) - As many of us know and might have experienced, coming home after living in another country is a joyful experience which sometimes it is very difficult to describe or put in words. It was what I was feeling when coming back from Italy to South Sudan after my two years of studies in Rome. Knowing that reaching home I am going to have a great time with my family members and friends whom I have missed for so long.

18 July 2016 – (By Bill Firman) - Denis had seen the man a few times. He had appeared occasionally outside of our fence in the evening, apparently homeless, finding a place to sleep. He did not beg or ask for anything but Denis had given him water and a bread roll. On Saturday afternoon, he died there on the street – alone. Our neighbours alerted us. The police came and took the body away. Nobody knows his name or where he came from. Another life ended in South Sudan. For somebody, somewhere, he is a missing person, perhaps a father, brother or son, just another statistic in a nation where all too many die and nobody knows. They just disappear.

28 July 2016 – (www.comboni.org) - The superiors of the European Comboni circumscriptions met at the Mother House in Verona Italy on July 19-21 to reflect on the topic of “Communicating mission in the digital age.” The idea surfaced because our magazines are experiencing a constant drop in circulation. Therefore, the objective of the meeting was to try to understand which way the world of communications is going today, in order to foster and support a possible common European project as an answer to the current crisis and to future challenges.
