Remembering Fr. Guido Tisera SVD
1949 – 2011

Fr. Guido Tisera, SVD, former Generalate Coordinator of the Biblical Apostolate, passed away at the SSpS Hospital , Halilulik, near the town of Atambua , Timor on March 3, 2011 . He died of cancer at the age of 62. Since he knew that he had cancer in 2007 he had bravely fought against it by undergoing a series of chemotherapy combined with alternative treatment and prayers. Despite all this, at the end of last year the cancer had spread all over his body and since January this year his health condition had rapidly deteriorated.

On Thursday March 3, 2011 at 11:30 he went back to his heavenly Father forever. His funeral will take place on Saturday, March 5, 2011 at 14.00. We all pray that he may rest in peace.

United in prayers,

Lukas Jua, SVD

Just heard from our Provincial that Fr. Guido Tisera has passed away. 

He has been suffering for years 

especially since his right kidney was removed in Singapore. 

He was CBF contact person for SVD Ende Province, 

and later SVD BA Coordinator in Rome. 

I heard only that he will be buried in Atambua, 

his hometown in Timor.

He was very devoted to the BA, 

a serious and gentle person, someone you could rely on.

[He was]  in Tanzania with us

He has finally been freed from his suffering,

and may now behold the Word of life in all his glory.

Dear Guido, rest in God’s peace!

 Praying for you,

Sr. Emma

Dear Doms,
Thanks for your e mail. I am now at the island of Timor where I come from. I stay with my sister, taking rest and still taking medicine as well. Aside from that, I also take alternative therapy. And also I have to have diet. My health condition is good or getting better. I still have regular medical check up in Singapore. Normally I stay in Jakarta because there you have easy access to specialist and hospital. So on the 30 of May I’ll go back to Jakarta.

I still remember our last meeting of the Zone, in Baguio and the we moved to San Fernando and there we shared the same room with Oscar. On our way back to Manila, we had lunch at Urdaneta. All the best for your new job but also for your faithfullness to the Word.

Let us pray for one another. God bless,
Guido Tisera.

  1. Thank you for publishing photos of Guido dan his email from Timor. I have already saved the photos as a sweet memory of my real friend.

    He is a consistent person throughout his life, being focused to his job, showing a persistent struggle to recover from his illness. Guido is not only excellently competent in the Bible studies but also becomes “the Bible” itself in his personality and behaviour.

    Although he was suffering of his illness, on January 30, 2010, he participated in the wedding service of my first daughter and my (second) wedding service as well on June 27, 2010. I do miss him very much. I am very proud of him. (S.Belen, Jakarta, Indonesia)
