Let Us Respect One Another: A meditation on the Foundations of Christian Living

Let Us Respect One AnotherLet Us Respect One Another: A meditation on the Foundations of Christian Living, by Salvador Ferrao, SJ assisted by Laurenti Magesa (Makuyu: Don Bosco Press, 2018) 87 pages.

Fr. Laurenti  Magesa and Fr. Abuna Salvador studied in Kipalapala Theologate in Tabora, Tanzania in 1972. Magesa was junior to Salvador. After ordination, Salvador was invited to preach a retreat to the seminarians there. He saw Magesa playing tennis with their Professor Fr. Gerald Taylor (now deceased) of the Missionaries of Africa, and asked him what had happened: had he not graduated yet? Magesa told him he was now a lecturer. Since then the two did not meet until 2017.

Fr. Magesa is now an author of many books and a competent theologian and has helped Fr. Salvador to put his unruly thinking into somewhat coherent flow.

This piece of work is a gesture of gratitude to Don Pedro Arrupe, and former Father General, who missioned Salvador to Africa in 1972. Arrupe’s life exemplified “Apostolic Aggressivity” and “Holy Boldness.” It is also in appreciation to his successor, Fr. Peter Hans Kolvenbach S.J. who stated persuasively that the Eucharist is confrontative, Fr. Adolfo Nicolas S.J., who spoke of “non-geological nations”, and General Fr. Arturo Sosa Abascal, S.J, who believes in the Audacity of the Impossible”.
