we drove from Dindigul to Aluva by a jeep. Br. Antony Francis, Guardian of Anugraha accompanied me. It was a very good journey. The road to Kerala is well done from Tamil Nadu. On the way we got some few showers of rain. The weather was just nice. We arrived in Aluva around 7 in the evening. It took us about six hours. Br. Raphy, the provincial minister welcomed us fraternally. In the refectory the friars welcomed us with flowers. It is warm here in Aluva.
I met the provincial definitory and dialogued with them. It is a province which has got many senior friars and young too, They have mission in Malawai where about 20 friars are working. They have a house of Philosophy where the students from three provinces are studying. They have about 86 students from all the three Provinces of St. Joseph and Pavanatma.
