Chennai, Feb. 1. My dear confreres,
Affectionate greetings from the Provincial House!  
As I come to the end of my term as Provincial, I would like to express, through this circular, my heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you, dear confreres, for the sentiments of love and appreciation and the spirit of cooperation and solidarity that you have extended to me. Frankly I can say, ``You have touched me and I have grown``.
In all honesty I can say that I have tried to add ``my little drop`` to the ocean of the province every day.
As I look back at these past six years, I feel so humbled to realize how the good Lord accompanied me during these years and did such wonders in the province in spite of my personal limitations and unworthiness. All along I have felt the love, appreciation, and the support of you, my dear confreres. Often I used to recall the words of Father.
