After having spent three weeks in Camerino, Loretto and Giovanni Rotondo I am back to the General Curia. It was cold over there but here it is not so cold but tolerable. But nice to be back to your own dwelling and familiar faces. My province members were waiting for me. we met this morning during the tea break. They are all getting ready to leave for Christmas ministry in the parishes. The whole indian group celebrated Christmas yesterday with the High Mass celebrated by the Rector and in the evening a "Bada Khana" for Indian Capuchins and the Fraternity members. I heard it was a wonderful celebration. I too was invited but i reached late to Curia around 11pm.
As you are in mood of Christmas celebration i share with you the following little reflection by the Holy Father. Taken from Vatican Information service. Good thought indeed and worth reflecting!
