Rev. Fr. Matthieu Dauchez, Executive Director of the TNK Foundation gave a talk on “The Prodigious Mystery of Joy” last Saturday 14th November in Our Lady Queen of peace, EDSA Shrine, Ortigas (Metro Manila – Philippines).
Manila’s street children are rejected, assaulted and abused. They have every reason to shout out their indignation and inevitably sink into despair. Life has not spared them any moment. Happiness seems forbidden to them.
And yet, everyone who meets them discover a surprising joy that bursts out from the very deep of their wounded selves. Is it an illusion, a scandal or a profound mystery that makes them seize Life eagerly? Father Matthieu Dauchez shared the exemplary teachings offered by the poorest of the little ones.
