A special greeting, thinking of Africa - to be our host in Nairobi soon
This year, as we all focus more on Africa because of the upcoming EoC events at the end of May, the most fitting thought for Easter seems to be what we have just received from Philippe Deroo, our French translator who lives in Burkina Faso:
“Here in Burkina Faso, in the season of the great heat, there are frequent blackouts. So at these times not only the Internet is gone, but ventilation and air-conditioning, too... For two days we didn't have running water even... We use buckets... However, spiritually we are all well: we do not miss the "great sun", that of Easter."
May this "great sun" shine upon everyone, and especially the poor... Happy Easter!

'Let Jesus be born in the midst of our community, in our businesses, let him move around freely in the hangars and maybe get a little dirty with the dust of our work...' Our best wishes to all EoC members
by Luigino Bruni
Christmas is the great celebration of communion, a communion so real to become flesh. To become a baby, fragile and poor, but one who makes us rich through his poverty. The EoC, that this year has grown in the number of companies and in the profits donated by all of you (as you will see from the Report that will soon be available on the site), is our small but precious gift to Jesus who is born, and in him to all children, girls, boys and young people who are more and more in the focus of our project. This year we would like to give special thanks and a special wish to Africa, a continent that is experiencing a real spring of the economy of communion. Nairobi is waiting for us at the end of May and I am sure that we will be generous in responding and we will be there in great numbers.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and let's have Jesus be born in the midst of our communities, in our businesses, let him move around freely in the hangars and maybe get a little dirty with the dust of our work so that he feels more at home in our "houses".
