Fr General in the MassSunday, 30 April 2017

On Sunday 30th April, Father General ended his one day visit to Bujumbura, Burundi. He was to travel to the Central Africa Province, however, there was no airline connection to make a direct flight to Bukavu, DRC. He flew back to Kigali in this afternoon in order to make connection to the eastern Congo.

The timing of his fight offered a chance to the faithful in Burundi who worship at the Sacred Heart Chapel to celebrate the Eucharist in the company of Father General. The mass ended minutes past noontime, just the time needed for the General and company to prepare for their flight which was at 15:00 hours.

The General visit to Bujumbura was a joyful experience for all those who came to meet him. The Jesuits were excited and left in great awe for this rare opportunity of seeing the General in one’s lifetime. The collaborators and friends of Jesuits were too grateful as that could be felt on their faces and expression of gestures such as gift offerings that they prepared for him even up to the very last hours before his departure.
