after a few days that the newsletter is online, I would like to ask you how the translation on this page works – what are your experiences, what should be made better …
From a Polish speaking woman I got the feedback, that the translation is – put it mildly – TERRIBLE! So I would like to know if it is a way to go forward with this newsletter or better to look for an other (maybe the former traditional) way for the translation.
Let me know, please.
Many of you know the ICDS prayer chain. In the past it was sometimes very hard to get always new requests, thanks or personal prayers to share. One of the barriers and big challenge is always the language and the translations. Now, we try to publish it with a new face and more possibilities for the language.
We know that the translations are not perfect – ” what you say by translated words, is not always that what you want to say with your mother tongue” – but in this special case it’s necessary to use also your heart to hear and speak (→ write). And our hope is also grounded in the educability of the used internet language modules.
However – the actual issue of the Lay Salvatorian prayer chain is published.
This is the newsletter page of the Community of the Divine Savior, or better use the short name – Lay Salvatorians. We try to publish a newsletter 3 or 4 times per year. It depends on the news that we get from the units all over the world. Christmas, Easter and Whitsun are the main times of the newsletter and also at the beginning of September.
So – here could be the place of YOUR news of your Salvatorian life. It’s open …
For news leave a reply, please.
It’s hard to believe, but 2013 we are able to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Lay Salvatorians in Austria and Europe. 1988 a group of three couples made their first commitment at the cathedral of Gurk/Carinthia. We think this is a good occasion to come together for a meeting and share our experiences and motivate young or initiate new units for the Lay Salvatorian project.
Date: June 13th – 16th, 2013 (→ 165. birthday of Fr. Jordan)
Topic: A VISION – Lay Salvatorians – yesterday – today – tomorrow
Program: Initiators and beginners from the European units tell about their experiences, challenges, the reality, visions and possibilities for the future.
A detailed invitation is in preparation.
We are looking forward to welcome Salvatorians, Lay Salvatorians and interested persons there!!!
