On 3rd February, Eucharistic was celebrated by Fr. General and the Definitor along with all the provincials and all the Prioresses of Indian Carmel and the office bearers of the three associations in India. Our sisters gathered at Hyderabad to meet Fr. General and discuss on some of the important issues connected to Indian Carmel and to clarify some of their doubts regarding the Vultum Dei Querere. Indian Carmel consists of 34 monasteries of which the latest community at Kolayad in Kerala was inaugurated on 29th January. Hence 34 prioresses and 11 office bearers of the associations were present. Fr. General was present on 3-4 and Fr. Definitor concluded the meeting on 5th evening.
It was really a moment of communion and strengthening of the charismatic identiy of the Indian Carmel. Fr. General’s interventions and words of encouragement to live the charism faithfully were very much appreciated by all the representatives of Indian Carmel.
