Fr. Mike continues the interview with SVD Superior General Fr. Heinz Kuluke. They talk about the 6,000 priests and brothers who serve in 78 different countries. There are also Holy Spirit Sisters connected with the SVDs and a contemplative group who pray constantly for the active missionaries.
Fr. Heinz has already traveled to 55 countries visiting the SVDs. He tells several fascinating stories of people he has encountered during these travels. One sister working with him in the Philippines was at first judgmental about the prostitutes. As it turns out, she is now working with them as a ministry.
After discussing reasons why young people may not be attracted to religious life he talks about 7,000 young adults who applied for a service project.
