“Render your hearts, Who long for your Love! Render your hands, Who long for daily bread! Render your service, To those who say, I have no one.”
Bangalore – Guanella Preethi Nivas welcomed thirty lay people on July 8th for a Guanellian Lay Movement meeting. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, conducted by the Superior, Fr. Visuwasam, opened the meeting with God’s blessings. Fr. Visuwasam than thanked everyone for their past support and then invited them to pray for the soul of Mr. Prasanth’s father. Fr. Samson gave an overview of the GLM around the world. Mr. Dominic was elected as secretary and Mrs. Linnet as vice secretary for the coming year. Being inspired by Guanella’s quote, “Come let us work together to reach holiness” Mrs. Linnet said, “I was first introduced to the Guanellian mission in 2008. Since then, I have been an observer and a participant in many of the activities. I was touched by the dedication of fathers, sisters and brothers with which the elderly, destitute people were taken care. The assistance they give to the education of under privileged children is very inspiring. The way in which the novices are taught to follow the way of our Lord is highly commendable. I am proud to be a part of this family doing the will of God.” Fr. Visuwasam finished by unveiling the newly started ‘Preethi Nivas Trust.’ All members gave assurance that they would help the Guanellian Mission as much as possible. The evening ended with tea and snacks.
