A time of prayer and reflection for the Reds of Province of Bangalore

You are here

The second batch of the annual Retreat for the province of Bangalore (2018) was held between 16th - 20th July 2018 at NSK.  We were 68 participants and it was preached by Fr. Juvy.  His  scholarly and range of experience as a General counselor enhanced him better that he could give his convictions as zealous as he could.  Various examples of our confreres that he quoted from different parts of the world were really inspiring, at the time challenging. 

            Reflections were centered around the theme of the General Chapter specially focused on "Abundant Redemption and Abandoned Poor".  Each part of the theme were reflected from the Redemptorist lens that are to be applied to our Redemptorist way of life: individually, as a community and as a province. The questions at the end of each talk were challenging, that called us to do a sincere self-audit of one's life.  The Redeemer - Redemption - Redemptorist were the pivotal point of the Retreat.

            The Morning meditations on our Blessed and Servants of God, and the evening guided meditations kept us in prayerful ambiance.  Especially, the meditation on "The Rite of Ordination" during which we could really re-live through our Ordination ceremony  and re-emphasize our commitment to the Lord and to his people was impactful.  The whole program helped us to renew our vows sincerely.

            The challenge is to make this experience into a process (all through our life).  For this we need to make a conscientious human effort while depending on the providential blessing from God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit along with the Perpetual Help from our Beloved Mother Mary and the constant intercession of our confreres in heaven.

            We sincerely thank Fr. Provincial and the Counsel for organizing this retreat and the NSK community for the arrangements.
