From 25th March to 3rd April, the Annual Spiritual Exercises of the Pauline Family took place at the PDDM retreat house in Tokyo-Hachioji. Fr. Ignazio Hwang, a Korean priest of the Society of St Paul animated the retreat. He spoke of the messages of St Paul and St Augustine linking them to aspects of Fr. Alberione's "Donec Formetur". As a pertinent example, Fr Ignazio likewise shared his experiences as a child and his military service in Korea as an adult.
