On Futuna, Peter Chanel was not alone. He shared his life with Brother Marie-Nizier Delorme and he talked with him about the progress of the mission and also its difficulties. When he got the opportunity, he went to Wallis to meet his confreres.
Jesus passes time talking with his disciples. He helps them understand what has happened or things that he has said. On the road to Emmaus, he rereads the scripture with the disciples: “And, starting with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted the Scriptures that were about himself (s 24, 27). Lord give us a better understanding of your word so that we may share it with our brothers and sisters.
