Permanent Formation in India

permanent-formation-India-1On 29th July, all the fathers of the Indian delegation, came together for their second session of the permanent formation programme , on the theme ' the healing of our love',animated by Rev.Dr.Sebastin, the  Rector of St.Paul's theological seminary. He pointed out that in order to be healed, the diagnosis of the symptoms of the problems is important. So, he brought out beautifully the symptoms of the problems a priest can be diagnosed of in Indian situation. He listed out around  20 symptoms with his lengthy explanations  for each symptom and then he called our attention to the problems and the way to heal or overcome them. For the second part also he gave number of suggestions, which were very practical and useful.  All the participants felt it was a good travel that the animator has initiated to be made into oneself. Then there was meeting of the formators with delegate council to revise and fix the study programmes for each level of formation.

Permanent Formation in India

india-PFHaving completed the first phase of permanent formation on "Reconciliation", the Indian delegation has started its second phase of its ongoing formation with Rev.Dr.Sebastin, the Rector of St.Paul's Theological Seminary,Trichy,  who had completed his doctorate in Belgium on Dogmatic Theology.

With special reference to the recent apostolic exhortation of Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, his vision of the Church and the apostolate of the consecrated persons were the main focus. His vision of the Church is best explained in the images he uses for the Church: Mother, Shepherdess, Field Hospital and moon. All these images together mean that the Church should not be self-referential. On the contrary, it should surge forth to the existential peripheries of the world and share the tender love, mercy, compassion of Father as Jesus did. The consecrated persons should reach out to the peripheries in two ways: constant and direct contact with the poor and preaching the word of God with due preparation. These are the two essential means of the ongoing consecration of the priests and religious. The challenges faced by the consecrated persons in their missionary endeavour were also dealt with.
