Amalagam India: A day to remember

okAn important day for the Madurai community. It’s the inauguration day for our House “Amalagam”, 10years back. (on 4th feb 2002). After 10 years , today Amalgam, cradle of Our order in India,  till now gave birth to 12 Priests, 4 deacons, and many brothers.

We the community wanted to celebrate it in a simple manner on 5th Feb Sunday, inviting only our community from Trichy and Azilkhal. Except Fr.Maschio, Fr.Baskar, Diac. Cyril (who were engaged in some other program) all other were present. We had a solemn Mass, presided by our new priest Fr. Santhosh Kumar. Fr. Beno, rector of the community, read out the message of Fr. Delegate and thank all the participants. During the mass we honored our Fathers Fr.Lourdu and Fr. Donathius former formators  & Superiors of this community. After the mass the brothers screened-out a short film prepared by them, with the photos of all the events celebrated in Amalagam during these years.  Then Fr. Lourdu and Fr. Donathius remembered their years of presence in this community and the recent development in the house.  We want this moment not only as a mere celebration, but also as a moment of coming together with one heart and mind, to reconcile and to start working for the future development of our communities in India. I personally realized and experienced the moment as the psalmist says “How good is that brother live together”.  In this auspicious moment as the Rector of this Community I take this opportunity to Thank God for all the benefits, for His guidance for the past ten years. I extend my Heartfelt Thanks to Rev. Fr. Francesco pertillo, our beloved Father Rector General, and His council members, Rev.Fr. Vincenzo Molinaro, Former Rector General, our beloved Father Thomas, Indian Delegate(Thank u father Thomas, for your love towards India and for the nice poem, we too love you). Our former delegates, Fr. Innocenzo, Fr. Bruno and all the fathers, benefactors and  our well-wishers. I also thank our former Formators / Superiors of this community, Fr. Jeyabalan, Fr. Lourdu, Fr. Manohar, Fr. Donathius. Thanks to Fr. James Methos , who was incharge of this building during its construction. Thanks to Fr. Maschio  & Fr, James Rosario who were here in this community for a short period. Thanks a lot to all the fathers who supported these years. We also remember all the fathers and seminarians who passed- by Amalgam during their formation period. Let us continue to work together for the future growth of our Order.
