October Community Activities

Chennai 3 Chennai 2 Chennai 1Chennai  – A recollection was held for the GYM (Guanellian Youth Movement) on October 19th conducted by Fr. Francis. The theme was “God Loves Unconditionally.”  He told us that, “God loves everyone unconditionally even the least sinners.” He requested the young to cling to Jesus and to love everybody. “Cling to God and do not leave him, so that you may be honored at the end of your days,” (Sirach 2,3). In the evening, we had the GLM (Guanellian Lay Movement) gathering, addressed by Fr. Provincial on the topic “Sharers of the Guanellian Charism.” Then a novena to St. Louis Guanella was prayed during Benediction.
A joyous occasion was awaiting to celebrate the Founder’s feast and to inaugurate the 100th heavenly birth of St. Louis Guanella officially in our community on October 24th. Fr. Provincial presided over the Eucharist and preached sermon on the Bond of Charity, say that, “In a multi-religious context, all the religions emphasize love, which is a common platform to all.” Similarly our Founder also spoke the language of love to all sorts of people. Fr. Provincial ended his homily with the last words of St. Guanella, “Paradise, Paradise, Paradise,” and inaugurated the 100th anniversary of his death by opening the Founder’s decorated photo. The invitees were our recipients in DGSS, GYM, GLM, Religious and the staff.
“The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest,” (LK 10:2), thus fulfilling the words of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Theology brothers were sent two-by-two for the vocation promotions to different dioceses (Palayankottai, Darmapuri, Selam, Gunturu, Tuticorin, Kottar, Thanjur, Coimbatore, Chenglepet, Vellur and Nelluru) from October 26-31st .
