  • Fr. Campbell in Calcutta

    My Trip to Calcutta - Fr. Campbell
                    My journey to Calcutta began  on Monday evening, March 9. It was a 13-hour flight from Chicago to Doha, Qatar; then, after switching planes, another five hours to Calcutta, which is on the Eastern end of northern India, the capital of the State of West Bengal, and 11 hours ahead of out time (almost halfway around the world). I arrived about  3am  on Wednesday morning. Two Missionary of Charity (MC) sisters picked me up at the airport and we drove about an hour to their compound, which is about 1 ½ blocks long and ½ block wide. I stayed in a priest residence, a small concrete structure with two rooms. Later that morning I was given a tour of the compound. Two buildings housed men & women (separately) dying of AIDS; two others housed women and teenage girls (separately) who were mentally and/or physically handicapped: all together a couple of hundred people. Another two buildings housed the 50 MC sisters who come from all over the world to take a year-long course of studies in areas of theology and philosophy. I was there to teach them a series of classes on the Blessed Virgin Mary: 3 one-hour classes a day, at  8:30 & 10am, and at  3pm.
                They were just coming out of their “winter” and the temperatures were about mid-80s during the day, and about 70 at night. Although they always provided me with a fan, the sisters never used one, even though they were in their religious habits. They did say that they used fans during June and July when the temperature gets into the 100’s and the humidity is high.
                I found it very edifying to be with the sisters for almost 2 weeks. In addition to teaching for three hours a day, I offered Mass for them at  6:30am every morning (they make a holy hour at  5am each day); then I exposed the Blessed Sacrament twice a day, before lunch & dinner. I prayed with them and heard their confessions.
               Rice is the main food in India; often they serve it with a sauce made with potatoes and vegetables. Along with this, I ate a variety of soups, and had fish a few days (for Lent I go meatless; the sisters do as well). Fruit was also part of the daily meal: bananas and mangoes, which they grow on the compound - along with papayas and coconuts, but they were not in season yet.
                Calcutta is a city of about 4 million people, but 14 million if you include the suburbs, with much poverty. In 1952 Mother Teresa began to take in the dying, and the city gave her a building, now the Home for the Dying, which I visited. The city is mostly Hindu, about 20% Muslim and less than 1% Christian. We were about a block from a mosque, and at  4:45am each morning, as well as many other times throughout the day, the Muslim call for prayer is sung over a loudspeaker which can be heard by everyone in the surrounding area (it often interrupts the prayers of the sisters in chapel). But the MC sisters are always smiling and their outward expression reflects a deep interior joy, the fruit of living a life centered upon caring for the poorest of the poor.

  • Ordination Anniversaries

    Fr. McDermott celebrates his Ordination Anniversary on May 22nd. Fr. Campbell and Fr. Reese celebrate their Ordination Anniversary on May 25th. Here is a note from Fr. Reese:

    On Monday, May 25th, I recall my 24th anniversary of my ordination to the sacred priesthood. I really can not celebrate with no speech remaining, but I silently con-celebrate and I am very grateful to God for my vocation. I was never worthy of my call, but I prayed and tried to be faithful. I thank everyone for your prayers and words of support, and I will continue to remember you at Mass and in my prayers!

    I am still walking with a walker and breathing well, but my hands are very weak and I have a lot of fatigue a few days every weak. However, I GO to Mass every day, and stay for prayer. Then I go to Vespers and a holy hour every evening. I have finished writing my doctoral thesis, but am waiting for corrections to come for me to revise it,. I have had many visitors and feel blessed to be in such a good nursing home. Let us pray for each other. Peace, Fr. Reese
