Het is kersttijd en een aanzienlijk deel van de wereld viert de geboorte van Jezus. Hij zei ooit dat Hij het Licht van de wereld is! Misschien klinkt dit heel arrogant voor een buitenstaander: Jezus beweert het Licht van de were...

It's Christmas season, and a significant part of the world is celebrating the birth of Jesus, who once said that He is the Light of the world! Perhaps to an outsider, this sounds very arrogant! Jesus is claiming to be the Light of the world!? Light enables us to see th...

The historic visit of Pope Francis to Japan, on Saturday 23 of November, his inspiring anti-nuclear message to the world, and his visit to Nagasaki made me post this article which I wrote a couple of years ago about the nuclear bombing of Nagasaki and its consequences...

As Pope Francis is visiting Japan, I thought it is appropriate to share this article on my blog today!
