Frei Silvestre de Azevedo had been the religious man who had more success in Cambodia. Well related in the royal court, as to have been honored by the king with an honorary degree, he wrote the “Mysteries of the Christian Faith” in the Khmer language. In turn, the Capuchin friar Antonio da Madalena described in detail to the chronicler Diogo do Couto the mysterious capital of the Khmers, Angkor Wat. Madalena was, it is believed, the first Westerner to spot this magnificent example of religious architecture and classified by the Unesco as World Heritage Site.

THEOLOGICAL REFLECTION (5) – The Mosaic Covenant: At Sinai (Exodus 20 – Leviticus 27)

CHURCH FATHERS (7) – Saint Polycarp


We may have noticed that when we talk of the so called “Apostolic Fathers,” some of them are related with the apostles in a direct way and they may be also related among themselves. This is the case of Polycarp of Smyrna. He was a disciple of Saint John Apostle himself and was mentioned in some of his letters from Saint Ignatius from Antioch, someone we have met not long ago.

The Visionary

Mildred Neutzil was born in 1916 in Brooklyn, New York. When she was only thirteen she joined an active religious community in Ohio, the Sisters of the Precious Blood, taking the name Sister Mary Ephrem. Nine years later, in 1938, she began to have mystical experiences, which, sometime later, she was put under obedience to record in a diary. As a young sister her duties were usually domestic tasks in various houses of the order, and from 1951-1954 she taught kindergarten children at a parish school in Indiana.
