Every Wednesday the Cambodia Mission Team of Maryknoll has a meeting and a liturgy and then a meal together. This week was Fr. Bob Wynne’s last time to be with us before he departs for a new assignment in the United States so today’s gathering was special as members of the CMT expressed their appreciation for his presence and his work and wished him well in his new work.
Bob was the presider at the liturgy we celebrated today.
At the end Sr. Ann Sherman (standing) formally thanked Bob and presented him with some small gifts (easy to carry in his suitcase!) to remind him of his time in Cambodia.

Today’s Khmer Times newspaper has this article about a woman jailed for throwing a shoe at a billboard image of the prime minister! The prime minister regularly reminds the people that he is not a dictator and government spokesmen repeat again and again the claim that human and civil rights are respected. Does this look anyone has freedom of speech? Basically it shows how weak and insecure the current government is when they feel they need to prosecute such a trivial event.
