Dor Mhoineachi ROTTI

  

DorMhoineachiRotti ( Our Monthly Bread) is a monthly journal of the Jesuits of the Goa Province written in Roman Konkani script. It was started in Karachi (Pakistan) by Fr. Vincent Lobo in the year 1915 spreading the message of love and humanity. The Magazine was published in Pakistan but the readership was based in Mumbai and Goa. Since the partition, it changed its base to Mumbai and eventually Goa from 1964. While in Mumbai, Fr. Elias de Souza was the fourth editor and took care of the magazine. Gloria Church, Byculla and later St. Stephen’s Cumballa were the two places where this magazine saw its light. After the death of Elias, there was a break in the publishing of the magazine for a period of four years. 


A ray of hope arose when the Bishop of Ahmedabad handed over the magazine to Fr. Charles Gomes, S.J , Jesuit Provincial of Goa-Pune Province. He in turn handed over the responsibility of the magazine at the hands of the well-known Konknni stalwart, Fr. Moreno D’souza, S.J. He dedicated 42 years of his life at the service of this magazine. 

The work of the magazine was carried out from the Basilica of Bom Jesu, Old Goa and later it was shifted to the present venue, Thomas Stephens Konknni Kendra, Porvorim.


After Fr. Moreno, the responsibility was shouldered by Fr. Mathew Almeida, S.J . Due to his age, Fr. Ave Maria Afonso, a Goa Diocesan clergy assisted him in the managing of the magazine. Later, after the death of Fr. Mathew, Fr. Vasco do Rego, S.J was asked to carry it further along with the assistance of a young Jesuit Priest, Fr. Kelwin Monteiro, S.J. from Basilica for some years and then to Porvorim. Now from 2013, Fr. Jose Silveira, S.J, assists Fr. Vasco do Rego as Managing Editor and Printer and Publisher of the magazine.

The Beginner's Handbook For Resource Persons and Trainers

By Fr. Alban D'Souza S.J.

Fr. Alban D' Souza's first book. A Facilitator's Handbook: ready to present growth sessions for resource persons, was a tiny yet valuable resource at he disposal of teachers, trainers, facilitators and the like.


This time around Fr. Dsouza has outdone himself and come out with a comprehensive tome, four to five times in size, that  caters essentially to the rookie trainer but which can serve as a priceless tool for trainers of all hues and experience.


He has drawn from his own vast experience as a trainer, his extensive reading from a personal library that is the envy of many an academic institution, and his networking with other trainers to come out with a precious gem of a work. This book will do great service to trainers, facilitators, teachers and resource persons.
