Its my privilege to apply the SALT after being ignorant of sum facts. Now, as a team, we will continue to empower prisoners and those in the rehabilitation center so as to produce better
rounded individuals who will be reintegrated into society. When the message goes into the home then we
are better equipped to deal with the community, it will then spread like a
disease making our work much easier as we would have already laid the foundation.



We must bring them to the point of understanding that WE are responsible for our thoughts and actions and we should not give energy to someone else’s perception of us. We must love our
selves before we are able to love anyone else or before we can love someone for
loving us and have the courage to change the things we can and the wisdom of
the SALT will make a difference.



I say all the above to say that after 28 of years being involved with drugs and crime, the old Marc has died, a new Marc is implanted and it has been a remarkable transformation..........to
GOD i give all the GLORY........Amen!!!!

Here a message send by email for Marc from Sister Mercredes, living in the South of Thailand

Congratulations to Marc, who is courageous to apply SALT in his Ministry to those who are in prison. I hope that he and his team will continue to work with the prisoners and share their experience for the benefits of those who are planning to work in the rehabilitation. More power to Marc and his team. May God bless you.

Hi Marc,

I love your second paragraph as it is so true. Starting to love oneself again before we can love the other. It is an essential practice. Especially when we have to be strong in front of society that can have prejudices because of what we have done in the past.

One thing I learned from a friend in Burundi who is gay. He did a SALT visit to a community of drug users. He came in with plenty of prejudices and realized that they were as human as him and that they had many strengths. This experience helped him to understand that other people around him have the same prejudices about him as a gay person as he had about drug users.

The Zen master Thich Nhat Hahn says: "Love is understanding and understanding is love".

Keep up the SALTitude
