Sekelompok pelajar di Merauke, Papua mengatakan mendapatkan pelajaran berharga saat bertemu dengan anak-anak panti asuhan Santo Vincentius yang dikelola oleh misioner Bhakti Luhur.

“Kita orang normal, tapi terkadang kita mengeluh akan sesuatu yang tidak kita miliki. Yang sebenarnya tidak kita miliki adalah hati untuk selalu mencintai orang lain, dan bersyukur atas segala sesuatu,” kata Ana Yuliana Korewo Nautje, koordinator kelompok tersebut, kepada UCA News.

Dalam kunjungan tanggal 4 April itu para siswa dari sekolah negeri di Merauke tersebut menghibur anak-anak dengan berbagai kegiatan termasuk menyanyikan lagu popular “Jangan Menyerah”.

“Mereka memang pantang menyerah. Mereka tampak begitu bahagia dan tertawa bahagia,” kata gadis berusia 17 tahun tersebut.

Kunjungan tersebut terinspirasi oleh tema paskah “Kesejatian Hidup Dalam Keluarga” yang dicanangkan Keuskupan Agung Merauke.

Mereka membawa serta dua kardus mie instan, 35kg beras, telur dan berbagai bumbu dapur.

Sementara itu Suster Florensi N. Hokeng, kepala biara Bhakti Luhur wilayah Merauke mengatakan kunjungan para siswa tersebut sangat menghibur. “Saat kami penat dan menghadapi masalah mereka datang untuk menghibur,” katanya kepada UCA News.

Saat ini Panti Asuhan Anak Cacat Santo Vincentius dihuni oleh 10 anak berusia 1-15 tahun. Kebanyakan dari mereka ditinggal oleh keluarga.

Selama berkunjung, para pelajar didampingi oleh Pastor Apolinaris Miller Senduk MSC, pastor moderator keluarga mahasiswa Keuskupan Agung Merauke.

“Kami sadar ada banyak sekali orang berkekurangan di sekitar kita. Apa yang dilakukan para pelajar ini bertujuan untuk mempertajam hati mereka akan kebutuhan sesama,” kata Pastor Apolinarius. UCA News
