DIVYADAAN, JUNE 16, 2011: The community of Divyadaan was blessed to have his Lordship Rt. Rev. Lourdes Daniel, the Bishop of the Nashik Diocese, in their midst on June 14, 2011. The Bishop presided over the Holy Eucharist offering up to the Lord the intentions and petitions of the community. Bp. Lourdes Daniel focused on God being the treasure and goal of every consecrated person. He invited the young confreres to give themselves totally to God; to grow in wisdom, knowledge, faith and love during their formation years and to outdo one another in expressing brotherly charity. He urged the community to develop a thirst for God and quench this longing by engaging into a deep and continual relationship with Jesus.
The community felicitated the Bishop with a warm address and a blessing song, thereafter sharing in a fellowship meal. The confreres felt sincerely indebted to his Lordship for having spent his precious time praying with and for them. Rt. Rev. Lourdes Daniel was grateful to the community for its affectionate welcome, hospitality, enthusiasm and assurance of prayers.
The much desired visit of the Bishop to Divyadaan was a moment of grace that filled the house with God’s presence. No one was left untouched by the simplicity and holiness of the Bishop. The community could not but rejoice at receiving a man of God in their midst. The Bishop greeted the community in the name of Jesus Christ and very tangibly became a ‘CHRIST’ to each of the members in the community.
