Jesuit General, in Mumbai - March 2019
Visit of Fr Arturo Sosa to Bombay Province
These have been truly grace-filled days. The visit of a Superior General is meant to infuse new energy and enthusiasm in the members of a Congregation. This is exactly what the recent visit of Fr General did to us all here in Mumbai. And for this we are very grateful to God.
Fr General, Arturo Sosa, accompanied by Frs Vernon, Lisbert and Pierre, visited Vinayalaya, Manickpur, St Xavier's college, and Talasari. Fr General also interacted with the alumni of our institutions, the fathers in the province infirmary, and the Juniors. His presence was truly inspirational. He addressed the province and the officials of the province, and touched upon core current concerns about life and mission for a Jesuit today. His starting point was the recently announced Universal Apostolic Preferences. But he kept branching out into things inspirational. His very being in a way communicated the depth and rigor the Society is called to in both learning and life in the spirit. Most found his presence with us a real blessing.
