THE COST OF DISCIPLESHIP

Cl. Justus Mendis

LONAVLA, MAY 21, 2012: The retreat, from May 17- 23, 2012 preached by Fr. Texeira Banzaelo, sdb from INP province was a moment of rejuvenation for the seventeen clerics and three priests.


The young retreatants were called for a meeting on May 16. The agenda of the meeting was to evaluate the past year of Practical Trainees and have a sharing on the re-thinking of Salesian Youth Ministry co-ordinated by Fr. Fernandes Ajoy, sdb the Vice Provincial.


The retreat began on the evening of May 17, under the theme 'Cost of Discipleship'. It made the confreres aware of acknowledging themselves in the presence of the Lord. The first day helped the confreres to focus on one's call and especially for living a life of poverty. The second day shed its light on treasuring the virtue of chastity. On the third day, the retreat preacher enlightened the retreatants on Obedience. The fourth day was dedicated for the sacrament of Reconciliation. The fifth day embarked the importance of community living. Finally, the retreat ended with the Eucharist having eight young clerics renewing their vows.

The retreatants appreciated the talks of the preacher which helped them to pray. They left with renewed zeal to work among the young and with a deep sense of gratitude towards the loving Lord.
