Mumbai, Feb. 5. Sixty four Salesians arrived at Don Bosco Lonavla this morning, 5 February, to begin their 15th Provincial Chapter. At 5 pm, the chapter members gathered in the AV hall for a preliminary recollection preached by Fr. Francis D'Mello S.J., former Jesuit provincial of Mumbai. He spoke on ''Living the Radicalism of the Gospel'' in keeping with the theme of the Twenty-seventh General Chapter: ''Witnesses to the Radical Approach of the Gospel''. He elaborated that a radical is one who does everything with a totality of himself. He invited each confrere to seek to live a life of unquenchable enthusiasm, vibrant creativity, working from joy and gratitude.

There was an adoration at 7:15 pm on the terrace, where the preacher invited the confreres to look at the night sky and contemplate the immensity of the universe. It was a moment for each one to reflect not only the grandeur of creation, but also on the God of small things. The provincial gave the goodnight; he welcomed the confreres, shared news about the province and invited the confreres to continue reflecting on the insights of the recollection.

The community of Lonavla had a surprise item for the chapter members: a lively family circle where they serenaded the visitors with some band pieces and rock music - Gospel and secular...  The chapter deliberations begin tomorrow, with the Provincial's Report on the State of the Province and the presentation of drafts on the key topics: Mystics of the Spirit, Prophets of Fraternity and Servants of the Young.
