When I visited the formation houses located in our schools in Thailand and Pakistan on 3-7 January 2023 and 15-21 January 2023, I did not witness only inspiring candidates to religious life but also accounts of peaceful co-existence collaboration between Catholic, Buddhist, and Muslim Lasallians. The climate of working together and by association between Catholics, Buddhists, and Muslims is a precious gift to our Institute. The visits were part of the Secretariat for Formation’s objectives to accompany initial houses of formation, interact with formands and formators, engage in conversations on the formative journeys to inspire one another, and witness the community and apostolic life in the initial houses of formation.
