Columban Lay Missionary Rose Basada

I’ve been living here in Ciudad Juarez in the Parish of Corpus Christi in the Northern part of Mexico, Rancho Anapra, for almost eighteen months now. A few miles away one can see the border wall between Ciudad Juarez and El Paso, Texas. It is indeed a real privilege to be here as a Columban lay missionary with Fr. Bill Morton, a Columban priest, and my fellow lay missionary, Sai Tamatawale.

Columban Fr. Noel Connolly

I was ordained in 1969. Those were confident and energetic times. Neil Armstrong walked on the moon a few days later. Vatican II had only just finished, and we were excited and optimistic about the changes it was bringing. We were young, idealistic and ready, if not to save the world, at least to make a significant contribution.

Pulsating through our world, oceans and land
the tropics and artic, our home
flows the presence of God
loving a myriad of creation faces.

Embracing every species in its habitat
with a niche for the smallest
a preferred place for ones pushed to the side – 
the Spirit lives in every atom, life and species.
