Homily of Archbishop Peter Smith

The Institute of St. Anselm's, an International Training Centre for formators, leaders and evangelisers, is relocating to Rome after 32 years of an extremely fruitful presence in Cliftonville, Kent, UK.



Forgiveness and celebration are at the heart of community. These are the two faces of love. The poorer people are, the more they love to celebrate. The festivals of the poorest people in Africa last for several days. They use all their savings on huge feasts and beautiful clothes. These feasts nearly always celebrate a divine or a religious event. They are sacred occasions. In richer countries we have lost the art of celebrating. People go to movies or watch television or have other leisure activities; they go to parties but they do not celebrate

Travelling companions

To use a phrase from Pope Francis, all of us are called to wake up the world. How do we do this? By living and communicating the message of Jesus Christ. Our Missionary way of life is part of that communication of the Word, of how our humanity was saved through God’s loving action and how the way we live our humanity must reflect the loving kindness of God. Our life is missionary and our formation should not be oriented only towards personal growth but also how we are to care for God’s people. Hopefully our formation is not only to produce administrators or managers but people who are brothers and sisters and - ‘travelling companions’.
