One day recollection for the priests
Posted Date:April 7, 2017
A day of recollection in preparation for the remembrance of the great passion of our Lord, was arranged at the Cathedral on April 4, 2017. It started at 9.30am with the talk by Rev.Fr. Joseph CSSR. So much being in the praxis of his conviction, Fr. Joseph with reference to the Bible made a progress through different dimensions of perceptions of the passion of the Christ from what is generally thought. How the Cross is realized through our life permeated all his talks. Arrangements were made for the confession.
At 1.30pm there was holy adoration led by Rev. Fr. Joshua Kochuvilayil during which there were tremendous references to occasions that leads the priests astray in the way of chastity, and accordingly prayers were made so that the priests remain faithful to their vocation. After the adoration His Beatitude addressed the gathering. He announced that this year’s celebration of the Reunion would be held at Adoor under the aegis of the Major Archdiocese of Trivandrum. During his speech he touched upon many issues that directly or indirectly, adversely affects the gift of priesthood and asked the priests to be vigilant through prayer to conquer the lure of the world. The meeting drew to a close by 3.30 pm.
