WORLD GRATITUDE DAY-2013

Discussion and sharing on the following:
1. Seed of Faith sown in your soil yesterday
The seed of Faith was sown in our Indian soil by St. Thomas the Apostle and St. Francis Xavier. Our forefathers received this gift of faith and handed it over to generations after generations.
By the grace of God we were born and brought up in Christian families in an environment of sound Christian faith. This faith gradually grew through the reception of the sacraments especially Holy Eucharist and Reconciliation. We also drew inspirations from the lives of Saints as well.
Besides these, the exemplary faith life lived by our parents, regular Catechesis, participation in the parish activities, pious associations, family prayers ensured and deepened our faith in the person of Jesus Christ.
The inspiring lives of our elders enabled us to dedicate our lives to Christ and serve the people of God. Furthermore, the life of our founders and pioneers made our faith strong and consequently to commit ourselves for the mission especially for the poorest, disadvantaged, marginalized young people and women.
2. Challenges you encounter in living the faith in the
Community today
Accepting persons and events of the day in a spirit of faith.
Difficulty in transmitting the message of Jesus through one’s own witnessing life.
The consequences of the materialistic world and the struggle to live a faith filled life.
Working together as Team by transcending the differences.
Being rooted in our own religious traditions and share the spiritual riches with others.
Challenge to carry on a tradition of faith that has existed for so many years in today’s contest and live the goodness of Jesus
in every human situation.
Commitment to live according to Gospel values day in and day out especially in adverse circumstances.
Living daily faith as a continuous process of contrition and conversion, also a consistent progress in conviction and commitment.
3. Challenges you encounter in living the faith in the Mission
Today
• To put into practice new methods and expressions to encounter God.
• To re-discover the ways in which Jesus approached persons, putting into practice those approaches in today’s circumstances.
• To make the local church a welcome home where all find their home by bearing witness to Christ and Christian unity.
• Pooling together all the resources and work together according to one’s ability, charisma, and the appointed task.
• Establishing relationships with all people, tribes, class, caste, races, and Nations which should lead to fellowship rendering mutual help and well being.

de-grading the spiritual and moral values.
• To know the discrimination and attacks on Christians.
• To continue to train the laity for all services of the word of

God and empowering them to play an effective role in the

church and society.

preparation courses, ongoing formation for parents, family prayer
and pastoral visits to make all the Christian families Christ- centered.
• To boldly uphold the church’s teachings on marriage and family at all costs.

Dearest Mother,
Happy Feast we say, each one of us at the Provincial House, Bangalore. We know you personally as you were with us last January and we have living remembrances of your stay with us and the love you lavished on us. It is very easy for us to recall your smile and your affectionate ways of expressing your love for each one of us here.
United with all the members of our Educating Communities, lay staff, workers and the families we serve we sing to God a hymn of thanks for the gift of you. We thank you for your love and concern for our growth and well being as true Daughters of Mary help of Christians.
GRAZIE Madre!
Seed of faith - Yesterday:
• All of us were unanimous in saying that we received the seed of faith from our dear parents and siblings at home. The daily family prayer that we had was an important moment of growth in faith. It is true St. Thomas the doubting apostle of Jesus evangelized India. But our faith came through our parents and catechism teachers who were keen on instructing us and helping us to received the sacraments with due preparation. We know full well that our missionaries from Italy and Spain who lived with us have transmitted to us a very strong experience of faith by their life and teaching. Some of us who had personal experience with these missionaries remember with gratitude their contribution in our growth in faith. Their words and gestures of faith echo in our hearts even today.

• Today’s challenges: Difficulty in living with different characters; human reasoning; Ego and self will of individuals; difficulty in accepting one another with their varied temperament; acceptance of the different roles in the community; acceptance of leadership in the community; differences of opinion; inability to cope up with the demands of the mission; difficulty in learning the language of the people; lack of time to be available to those in need of us; lack of faith; worldly mentality of some; decreasing of religious spirit in some individuals; lack of commitment; secular mentality and lifestyle of some; lack of sincerity in relationship and living together.

• New ways of evangelization - Tomorrow: Making more efforts to become true disciples of Jesus; Christ like approach to people; to evangelize ourselves first that we may become more Christ like; learning the language of the people; following a simple life style like the poor of our locality; reducing activity and becoming more available to people; learning more about the modern technology and using them for evangelization; using appealing methods in our proclamation; being more credible witnesses; being more human in relating with people life Pope Francis; respecting the rights of individuals beginning with the community; giving up our superiority feeling and becoming one with the people.

............................................................................................................

We the sisters of Yeleswaram – Andhra Pradesh- India come to greet you a very Happy Feast on the auspicious day of our Institute. We remember you daily in our prayers and thank God for you when we think of you. We still cherish the fond memories of your presence with us last year.

WORLD GRATITUDE DAY - 26-04-2013

Seed of Faith sown in our soil yesterday

Seed of Faith was sown in Guntur district by the French Fathers of the Paris Foreign Mission (MEP) in 1763. In the 18th century, the conversion of the Reddys and Kammas took place. In later periods, people from other castes, like, Balijas, Patras, Sales, Thogatas and Dalits were converted.
In 1827 Msgr. Clement Bonnand of the MEP came to Phirangipuram, Gunur. He established 56 catholic communities with a total number of 4000 catholics. Irish Fathers too were instrumental in increasing the number of the catholic population in Phirangipuram.
Later Fr. Kennedy and Fr. Dieckman belonging to Mill Hill Fathers worked as parish priests at Phirangipuram and took pastoral care in and around the locality for 40 years. The catholic population in Guntur district from 1843 to 1875 increased from 3000 to 7000. They established Widows Homes and schools and hostels for children.
During this period Guntur that belonged to the Vicariate of Madras in Tamilnadu, came under the diocese of Nellore in Andhra Pradesh.
Since caste system is strong is Andhra, affiliation to one caste was a must for the missionary in the work of spreading the faith. If they did not do that, they were considered belonging to a low caste or pariah. Hence the missionaries were forced to take their stand by one caste only since the people of that caste did not mix with others with regard to worship.
Soon new missions were opened in the villages of Rentachinatala and Patibanda. In 1904 JMJ Sisters arrived at Guntur and started a Dispensary. St. Ann’s Sisters opened a convent at Ravipadu and established an Elementary School. The first Ordinations of locals from Guntur took place on 27 April 1933 in Nellore by Bishop Bonster. They were Frs. Kodadala Xavier, Kodadala Peter, Tipparamalli Marianna and Yeddanapali Jacob . All of them worked in Guntur district. There was also a regular supply of priests from Kerala and Tamilnadu. As a result, a great expansion took place in 1930s. Groups of conversions ttok place in Pulivendla, Porumamitla, Pedaparimi and Tenali.
Mill Hill Fathers did not attach much importance to formal education. This was a great set back to catholics compared to Protestant denominations which opened Elementary schools wherever possible. Catholics were prohibited from attending non-catholic Educational Institutions fearing loss of faith.
In 1940 the Holy See erected the indigenous Diocese of Guntur comprising the civil district of Guntur. Rev. Fr. Thomas Pothacamury was appointed as the Bishop of Guntur. Then, there were 14 parishes and 30 local priests. The Bishop created 6 new parishes : Pathareddypalem, Ongole, Peddavadlapudi, Tenali, Attalur and Kanaparru. The number of catholics rose to 30,000.
Bishop Thomas was succeeded by Bishop Mummadi Ignatius in 1943. He created new parishes and mission stations. He believed in the print media as a means of evangelization. “Bharata Mitram” was the first Telugu catholic weekly, published which was the initiative of Bishop Mummadi. He established a printing press – started Andhra Catholic Literature Society to promote and assist catholic writers. He invited the Salesian priests to take over the Industrial Training School for Boys and also the press . Andhra Catholic Literature Society to promote and assist catholic writers was his brain child . It was at this time that Loyola Public School and Jesuit Vinukonda mission by Jesuit priests were founded. They were invited to Nambur for the education of catholics.
Bishop invited Redemptorist priests to conduct retreats for the people in the diocese and to evangelise Tenali area. New High schools were started. He set up Poor Catholic students Education Fund.
Bishop Mummadi led a humble and simple life . Due to ill health he resigned after 31 years as a Bishop.
Msgr. Kagithapu Mariadas MSFS succeeded him. The diocese made great progress in the spirit of the Vatican Council’s directives : in the field of evangelization and social service - 12 churches and 56 chapels were built - several religious Orders of both Men and Women were brought to evangelise the people - set up the Diocesan Social Service Society. He was transferred to Visakhapatnam in 1982.
Bishop Gali Bali was installed in 1984. During his 29 years of bishopric, a Pastoral Centre for evangelization activities was built. Further, he established parishes in Mandal head quarters – opened schools with the help of Sisters, - Mahila Mandals and Thrift Societies to empower women - Kolping Centre for Self-Help and Income generation projects - Job-oriented technical courses - established BCCs –‘ a new way of being Church’ - Bible was translated into Telugu and made available at cheap rate - created an awakening and a taste to read the Word through Bible festivals, Quiz, - through various types of prayers, to make catholics a praying community. For the higher education of the catholics mainly, a College of Pharmacy, Degree Colleges and also Colleges for post graduate studies of different streams were established. Many Congregations were invited to start schools and for village visits and other works of evangelization. Special mention is to be made of the HIV/AIDS Centre that gives free treatment to patients under the care of the Sisters of Charity.
The diocese of Guntur can pride in the strong faith of their ancestors who lived nearly 300 years ago, undaunted by sufferings, adversities, kept their faith simple and strong, even in the absence of priests. This is our heritage and we have the obligation to spread it among our Hindu brethren.

 

Challenges in living the faith in the community and the mission

Due to various factors, the priorities of the value system ‘God – Others – I’ is overturned. Today the order of the priorities is :’I – Others - God’ for which name, fame, titles, prestige, economic gain through any ways etc. stand first, and God finds the last place. In the above materialistic realm, living the faith is to swim against the current.
Till one entered the convent, the candidate may have followed the “Law of the least resistance” with regard to the spirit of the unconditional giving at every aspect of religious life. Unless there is a strong right motivation for a total commitment, faith life in the community will be a farce.

Overstress given to “individuality” could be in conflict with the vow of obedience when one is not impregnated with the spirit of faith that enlightens one’s path of life where God finds the central place in a spirit of docility.

Transfers outside one’s State demands a strong faith life when one has to face insecurities having to live totally in a different set up with a new language, new culture, not experiencing the satisfaction of having given one’s whole self without being able to enter deep into the mission.

Only a living and active and humble faith can fill in generation gap, diversities of culture, character, capacities, mission and some modern trends with counter values.

New Ways for an Evangelization Tomorrow

Attract more lay deacons for evangelizing the families, entering house to house. They may be more acceptable and understand the problems of the people as they also experience the same stress and strain of the day-to-day life.
Apt use of media. Make the Christian doctrines more acceptable and palatable for the children
Teaching Bible through appealing ways like : SMS with Bible Quotations, using internet to pass Christian values through live-incidents, quiz programme, songs and dances on the miracles and parables of Jesus and the teachings of the apostles, publishing a small newspaper with small articles, poems, experiences of evangelization, exposing the miracles or teachings of Jesus or any Book of the Bible in the form of an interesting conversation in a homely style, organizing quiz programmes, competitions, preparing the readers through it for the important events like, Christmas, Easter etc..

Make the best use of modern advertising using flex, posters etc. on the roads, spreading the spirit of Christ far and wide.

A REPORT ON PROPOSAL IN PREPARATION FOR THE FEAST OF GRATITUDE 2013. Auxilium Ongole -INK

1. Discussion and share on the following: Seed of Faith sown in your soil yesterday at the community level

• Seed of Faith sown in your soil yesterday: The faith of the apostles and particularly the faith brought by St.Thomas, one of the beloved apostles of Jesus followed by Many St. Francis Xavier SJ , St.John De Britto, Robert de Nobili, Constantine Joseph Beschi, Who are regarded as saints of Tamil Nadu and our six Pioneers and missionary sisters who came to this holy continence Asia in which the beloved country India is situated , become blessed and also continues to be , the cradle of Evangelization , keeping aloft and alive the gift and the seed of faith sown in our soil with so much love, commitment and zeal, inspite of the indescribable challenges , of every kind, languages, cultures , various beliefs and religions , the hardness of the then rulers, lack of transport facilities, ill treatments meted out to these zealous missionaries due to hatred, envy seeing the seed of faith sprouting in the hearts of many , even death of some did not deter their zeal and the spirit of Evangelization.
• We did realize the great love the apostles, our saints and our missionary sisters had for Christ, that pushed them on to overcome, and to be faithful to the call and the life they had embraced. CHRIST WAS THEIR PASSION; DA MIHI ANIMAS was their Motto, The aspects of faith, had been lived and witnessed in every action of theirs. They accepted everything as a sign and loving message of God, calling for partnership in spreading his kingdom and its values so they could overcome their weaknesses and challenges with ease and humility, placing all their trust in God and in others. So every weakness of theirs became strength, and powerful means of evangelization. Christ was the beginning and end of everything in their life. His presence was a reality in their life. So fatigues were borne willingly and joyfully. Prayer life was their weapon. Sisterly charity reigned supreme and it was their daily manna, with communion of hearts and minds they worked wonders and experienced daily miracles in their personal, community life and mission even though at time they had to shed blood, laid down their lives for the sake of faith and winning souls for Christ. .
2. Challenges we encounter in living the faith in the community and the mission today
• Insufficient, depth of love and commitment to the person of Christ as the apostles , our founders and missionaries had been. Lack of true genuine loving relationships among us and in our communities
• .Weakened zeal and enthusiasm to live and bear witness to the Lord through daily conversion of mind and heart , that need to be expressed in our attitudes and way of life and in leading our collaborators and beneficiaries and many young people to the door of faith .

3 A new ways for an evangelization tomorrow : Indeed, we do need today more than ever to be strengthened in living our faith, in newness, and commitment. Christ has to live in our heart, mind and lives. Unless we are fascinated by him, faith life is not possible. Each one of us need to be nourished by his body and blood and to become body to be broken, shared by and for others. Sisterly communion and sisterly love need to be strengthening through prayer life .Daily effort is needed, to overcoming our individual differences, and other blocks, that weakens our faith life and community communion.. We should be convinced that we need to let the passion for Christ and passion for humanity take flesh in us as in our founders and in Mother Mary to guide our personal and community life more than, any other human forces, reasoning and behavior. Let our every cell of the body aspire with the sentiments and longing of St.Paul. It is no longer I live; It is Christ who lives in me and I can do all things, and overcome all things, in Christ, who strengthens me. For me to live is Christ and die is a gain So we propose the following new ways
 To Rediscover the true joy of believing by entering into a journey of faith, by in-depth study of the scripture , chronicles of the institute, province and local community and the life of our founders and first sisters.
 To Cultivate faith by practicing daily “ give away the rest” (Renunciation of mind, will and body) so as to live obedience ,poverty and chastity and Gospel simplicity.
 To bear witness and celebrate the transforming effects of faith in our daily life keeping our gaze on Christ , thus transforming our lives and of our community
 To become capable of opening the minds and hearts of the young as to guide them to seek and desire for God and his kingdom values.
