Dialogue Matters: Interview with Xaverian missionary, Fr. Rocco Viviano working in Japan.
Mission Outlook Podcast Series
by Brother Pietro Rossini, SX
Fr. Rocco Viviano is a Xaverian Missionary who currently works in Japan. He has a Master’s degree in Missiology and a Ph.D. in Interfaith Dialogue. In this episode I discuss with him the following questions: What is interfaith dialogue? How does it work? How to become people of dialogue? Is dialogue part of the Christian faith? Is the dialogue in opposition to the proclamation of the Gospel?
St. Guido Conforti, founder of the Xaverian Missionaries urges all Xaverian Missionaries in this chapter of the Testament Letter speaks of the seriousness of the spiritual journey as missionaries and practices, spiritual disciplines that assist along the way.
Celebrating 100 Years of our Testament Letter of the Founder
The Testament Letter of the Founder of the Xaverian Missionaries is the ardent desire of St. Guido Conforti for the present and future of the Xaverian Missionaries in the mission of the church. In this rather short but meaningful text, the founder lays out his dream for each Xaverian Missionary. Through the religious vows, both our bond to each other and the world around us is lived out in a daily journey, attentive to the needs of those most marginalized. Our passion for Christ and passion for humanity transcends the borders of faiths and cultures in order to “see, seek, and love God in everything.”
