Rector Major Leads Spiritual Retreat for South Asia

Bangalore, Feb. 25. The Rector Major Fr Pascual Chavez is in Bangalore since February 22, animating a spiritual retreat for the Salesians of South Asia. Among the 96 participants of the retreat are the provincials, provincial councillors and novice masters of the ten provinces of India and the vice-province of Sri Lanka, as well as members of the Secretariat of the Salesian Provincials' Conference of South Asia (SPCSA).
The retreat has the general theme of ''Returning to Don Bosco'', leading to the bicentenary of Don Bosco's birth (1815-2015). The insightful and thought-provoking talks, based on some of his ''Letters'' and garnished with his personal experiences, offer the listeners a holistic understanding of Salesian life and spirituality. Every morning the Rector Major gives a brief meditation on the Blessed Virgin, offering fresh insights on the role of Mary in the Church in the life of the Salesian. He also presides over the Eucharist every day, while the provincials of the region, in turn, preach the homilies. Through the much appreciated daily 'Good Night' talks he shares information and news on the major pastoral challenges facing the Congregation across the world.

Fr Maria Arokiam Kanaga, Regional Councillor for South Asia, and Fr Juan Bartolome, Secretary of the Rector Major, are also present at the event.

The retreat will be followed by the ''Team Visit'' (March 1-5) where the Rector Major and four of his councilors will meet with the Provincials and their councillors to understand the state of the Congregation in this region and to offer evaluations and indications to make the provinces grow together as a region.
