Bishop Roger Chung Jaomalaza during a positive exile in Mauritius from Madagascar gleans the Mauritian Goyave de Chine which abounds in the Plaine Champagne and La Brasserie areas....Rth 2:1 One day, Ruth said to Naomi, "Let me see if I can find someone who will let me pick up the grain left in the fields by the harvest workers." Naomi answered, "Go ahead, my daughter." So right away, Ruth went out to pick up grain in a field owned by Boaz. He was a relative of Naomi's husband Elimelech, as well as a rich and important man.

[Diocese of Antsiranana - Indian Ocean] Rth 1:12 You must go back home, because I am too old to marry again. Even if I got married tonight and later had more sons,
Rth 1:13 would you wait for them to become old enough to marry? No, my daughters! Life is harder for me than it is for you, because the LORD has turned against me."
Rth 1:14 They cried again. Orpah kissed her mother-in-law good-by, but Ruth held on to her.
Rth 1:15 Naomi then said to Ruth, "Look, your sister-in-law is going back to her people and to her gods! Why don't you go with her?"
Rth 1:16 Ruth answered, "Please don't tell me to leave you and return home! I will go where you go, I will live where you live; your people will be my people, your God will be my God.
Rth 1:17 I will die where you die and be buried beside you. May the LORD punish me if we are ever separated, even by death!"
Rth 1:18 When Naomi saw that Ruth had made up her mind to go with her, she stopped urging her to go back.
Rth 1:19 They reached Bethlehem, and the whole town was excited to see them. The women who lived there asked, "Can this really be Naomi?"
Rth 1:20 Then she told them, "Don't call me Naomi any longer! Call me Mara, because God has made my life bitter.
Rth 1:21 I had everything when I left, but the LORD has brought me back with nothing. How can you still call me Naomi, when God has turned against me and made my life so hard?"
Rth 1:22 The barley harvest was just beginning when Naomi and Ruth, her Moabite daughter-in-law, arrived in Bethlehem.
