Every time we remember to say "thank you", we experience nothing less than heaven on earth." - (Sarah Ban Breathnach)
It took Many of us by surprise when Fr. Richard Lopes was appointed as the PCF of Gujarat province. He is a young man who has traveled extensively (but only a few countries) and who is filled with unique and yet rich worldview- of the Society of Jesus and the world in general - will lead the Scholastics towards holistic growth, from now on. Welcome Fr. Richard and wish you all the best!. We truly believe you will do a wonderful service and Scholastics will love your presence which would enable them to give themselves magnanimously.
Heart-felt gratitude to Fr. Lawrence Dharmaraj who had been tremendously committed towards the holistic growth of us, the future priests of this least Society of Jesus. His practical life is an inspiration to us at our every step. He has awakened us from our dogmatic slumber, revived our spirit and no doubt, encouraged and nourished us spiritually. As some one has said rightly, the achievement of your goal is assured the moment you commit yourself to it. Fr. Lawrence has shown it in practice. Being a techno-savvy, he has contributed a lot in terms of webs and blogs. Various assignments and spiritual matters which he updates on the Scholastics’ blog has become a spiritual food to many of us. Due credit to you Fr. Lawrence. We assure you of our prayers as you serve the need of the province as Socius to the Provincial. May God bless you!
