Letters of Arnold Janssen, SVD, to South America vol. 4 1905-1908
This volume contains the letters that show the consolidation of the domestic and foreign presence and Argentina and Brazil, carried out by Fr. Schmid despite his poor state of health. Arnold Janssen in this period assigns him the position of “regional”.
In Chile they are trying to consolidate the presence in the north, but they cannot find a superior appropriate to the circumstances and there are also problems with the bishop.
SSpS are growing in Argentina and Brazil. Young people from the German colonies are accepted in order to maintain internal unity. Arnoldo Janssen is optimistic about these mission locations in South America. On the other hand, it is clear that A. Janssen does not receive widespread veneration from his confreres. Although the SVD grows in number, concern for internal unity and spiritual life is appreciated.
