GOODBYE P. KARL-EDMUND PRIER, SJ

gtpministries.org – Indeed, I never imagined that today, I would witness the end of a publishing business that began about 50 years ago. I was an eye witness to how Father Adolf Heuken, SJ, who was good at writing, composed words, put sentences together, wrote them down, published them, looked for markets, and raised funds to run this small office. An impressive and dedicated journey from a publishing institution that started modestly but grew to become an integral part of the history of publishing in this country.

In the journey of Cipta Loka Caraka (CLC), we discover the richness of deep meaning behind each letter that makes up this name. KKK – Catholic Cadre Course – is the name of a publishing section of the Marian Congregation which is located at Jalan Gunung Sahari 88, Jakarta. The Marian Congregation, which at that time was known as MC, or Mariana Congregation , or Sodality of Our Lady changed its name to CLC, Christian Life Community . How to become a Cipta Loka Caraka? CLC, Cipta Loka Caraka. This name was compiled from material inherited from CLC, the Christian Life Community . From this first “C” comes the word Cipta, which contains the meaning of copyright, to create. make, do. From Life , to Loka , it contains the meaning of place. And the second “C” refers to the word Caraka , which means messenger. With deep aspirations and hopes to become a “Place for Creating Messengers”; CLC strives to offer writings that may be useful for anyone who is called to be a keeper of tradition, a bearer of light, and a shaper of character.

This publishing institution was born from a holy spirit, with the initial mission of spreading spiritual reading to young people. As time went by, this institution grew and developed, expanding into various fields of knowledge. From publishing small books, various simple dictionaries to thick dictionaries, books on the history of the city of Jakarta, as well as encyclopedias of the Catholic Church. This institution has been an important part in spreading knowledge and wisdom. I remember it as a long journey that started with very humble beginnings. Like a crawling, tottering walk that continues without making too much noise, but still alive, still producing and still dedicated. Those of us who were in the early days of CLC, may feel grateful to be able to observe closely, Father Adolf Heuken, SJ as founder, writer, publisher, market creator, subscription developer, fund seeker, and research actor. He gave an example of how in the early days we were taught not only to carry out tasks, but also to formulate a basic understanding of what CLC does and how the fruits of its work can be meaningful for the people and society.

However, as we know, new times come bringing inevitable changes. This publishing institution, which had started as an intellectual explorer, then faced the challenges of changing times. The content, marketing methods and interactions with the public have also changed. While these changes force us to accept the closure of this institution, we are also invited to be grateful for all its gains during this time. At the same time, we hope that this feeling of gratitude will become capital to move forward. CLC’s strength lies in its courage to start a business. CLC saw a need, CLC took action.

These publishing institutions left behind not only physical prints that line library shelves, but also invisible legacies of knowledge and inspiration. The works produced not only reflect intellectual progress, but are also a reflection of the spirit of togetherness and hard work that has turned it into an institution whose work is absorbed by society.

As we close this chapter, let us give thanks for all that has been accomplished and celebrate together. Although this institution will come to an end, may its spirit live on through every book that has been published, every idea that has been bestowed upon us, and every positive change that has been inspired by it. We are grateful that CLC has served in its time. Hopefully every messenger who has been touched by Cipta Loka Caraka can bring light of goodness and happiness to the places they visit and light the path they walk. Have a good rest CLC, safe passage to eternity, Cipta Loka Caraka. May the trail you have blazed continue in a million ways.
