Week on Kilimanjaro

This week Tanzanian Spiritans are here at Maua, the Capachin Sisters House, high on Mount Kilimanjaro. It is a time to take stock both personally as Spiritan family. Tony Gittins, who teaches mission studies and Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, is giving us two talks a day and the rest of the time is for good food, good talk and hopefully some fruitful reflection. For many years now, the snow grows less on the peak of Kilimanjaro. Years ago it hid the rocky summit and now is reduced to some anemic fingers of the white stuff. Some experts tell us that it will be totally gone by 2020.
