Regional Recollection @ Divya Sadan
The Friars of Bengaluru Region gathered together for a day of recollection on March 31, 2021 the closing day of the fiscal year in close preparation for the Easter Triduum at Divya Sadan, Geddalahalli – Bengaluru.

The program began with a welcome drink of nimbu paniya which made the friars feel cool as the day’s temperature rose to 35 C. Fr Jaya Rathnam, the nephew of late Msgr. Japamalai who helped us to have Vijayanagar and Hegdenagar Parishes preached the recollection talk. In his simple sharing he presented St Joseph as a model for consecrated men and women.

After receiving the sacrament of Reconciliation, the Friars gathered in the chapel for the Eucharistic adoration led by Fr Vijay D’Costa. As the Province celebrated the Ruby Jubilee of its existence, Fr Arun Bennis, helped the members to recall God’s blessing one by one and to thank Him for His bounty. Fr Vijay in his reflection helped us to go back to the moment where God called us twice [Biblically calling twice is a sign of intimacy, urgency and importance] and the moment where we said yes to him. Later the Friars invoked the blessings of the Eucharistic Lord on various needs of the Province as it marches towards its Golden Jubilee.

Later each Community of the Region shared their mission and vision for the Triennium. The Benjamin of the Region Fr Adarsh offered a bouquet of flowers to Fr Provincial, the head of the family to mark the Ruby Jubilee. Fr Provincial along with the senior most members of the Province present, Frs. Isidore and Paul cut the jubilee cake. The day of fraternity and recollection ended with a Lenten meal prepared with much love. They all exclaimed, “Indeed it was very good!” The Friars of Bengaluru region grateful to the community of Divya Sadan for the systematic and painstaking arrangements made towards the regional recollection.
