Carmelites Fraternity Reinforced
March 29, 2016 Tuesday, the Carmelites of K.G. Province serving and
studying in Italy congregated together at the historical monastery of
Santa Maria della Scala, Rome to celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord.
The spiritual celebration commenced at 11-00 am with the Eucharistic
banquet presided over by Fr Elias D’ Cunha, the assistant parish priest
of Santa Maria, Empoli. Fr Sunil Rodrigues through his inspirational
reflection invited all to have deeper and profound union with the Risen
Lord setting aside our indifferences. Fr Ivan Pinto, rector of Scala
laid a red carpet welcome and expressed words of gratitude to all for
their gracious presence. The spiritual festivity was followed by the
fellowship meal which added authentic aroma to the celebration. Fr
Lawrence D’ Mello invoked the blessings of the Almighty upon the food.
Thus the fraternity and unity was reinforced, enriched and cherished by
each and every Carmelite who witnessed the celebration.
