Pakistan - Br. Nhat, SDB, and his testimony as Salesian Brother

23 April 2018

(ANS – Quetta) – After 20 years there are already seven Pakistani Salesians, but not yet any local Salesian Brother. Vietnamese missionary Br. Francis Nhat is the only Salesian Brother who belongs to the Pakistan Delegation.

What makes you happy or joyful as a Salesian Brother?

There are three main sources of my Joy: to share my Salesian Life with our confreres. At the same time, to dedicate my life for the young. To be a missionary. 

Who is your Salesian Brother model?

Blessed Artemide Zatti and Blessed Steven Sandor. 

What is the specific contribution of the Salesian Brother to our mission and community?

It's about Presence in the religious community and our Presence as Educators among the Youth! 

How to make the vocation of Salesian Brother more visible in the Church?

Sharing responsibility with clerics in the educative - pastoral mission. Forming Salesian Brothers as experts in Catechesis and Theology. 

How can the Salesian priest contribute to the promotion of the Salesian Brother vocation?

To live a simple life, be a good Salesian and to be present with the young. 

What sustains your vocation?

The Salesian community and the daily Eucharistic celebration with personal prayers. 

Any expectations from the 2018 Salesian Brothers Congress?

How to promote Brother Vocation and how to keep Salesian Brothers faithful in their vocation.

Among the 23 EAO countries or territories there are still nine without any local Salesian Brother - so we can say, the Salesian Charism is not yet fully visible within the local Church. The Salesians in EAO are asking for prayers for the first Salesian Brother vocation of Fiji Islands, Samoa, New Zealand, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Pakistan, Laos, Malaysia and Mongolia.
