Chennai – The February monthly recollection was held in Kavarappettai at Becchi Don Bosco Theological Seminary on February 19th. The DGMS community was warmly welcomed by the rector and his confreres and bid a fruitful recollection. Fr. Jeyaraj sdb, Rector, gave the introductory talk and Fr. Arul sdb, Administrator, preached on the theme “Fire in These Ashes.” In his sharing he highlighted four presuppositions, including self-recognition of ‘who am I?’ before realizing ‘what I do.’ Mentioning the three evangelical counsels, he connected them with three Italian words: Testroni – Obedience, Poltroni – Poverty, Mangioni- Chastity. He invited us to avow intimacy with Jesus, cancel out compromised celibacy and encourage openness. Followed by the talk there was time allotted for confession then Holy Mass celebrated by Fr. Samson, SdC. After lunch there was a volleyball match amongst brothers, tea and a photo session before heading home. Special thanks to Fr. Francis, SdC, Vice-Rector, for organizing the event.
