Bangalore – On Sunday, August 10th, the local Guanellian Lay Movement gathered for their monthly Recollection presented by Fr. Soosai Rathinam, Provincial Superior. The theme of the recollection was family life. He said that each family is like a small church, rooted in the Universal Church. In order to develop this small church, each family needs to foster the qualities of the Holy family of Nazareth which exemplifies mutual understanding, mutual love and concern in order to bring salvation to suffering humanity. Further he stressed the importance of using the words of tranquility when communicating, they create a bond of charity which unites and which highlights the values and dignity of each individual in society. Fr. Soosai also brought forth the new document of Pope Francis which speaks about the importance of family life. The Recollection ended with the Holy Eucharist celebrated by Rev. Fr. Gnanaraj, the local superior, and Fr. Bakthis, the animator of GLM. Following Mass, they also had a meeting to discuss the future vision of the GLM mission. They shared a meal before departing.
