A Missionary with a smile....passes away....



This is  Fr. Abel  Thekekutt (86) who passed away last night  at Assisi Ashram, Bharananganam on Sunday (28/08/2016) after a short illness. A great friar who has worked all over in our Capuchin Order. He was missionary in Tanzania, Malwai, South Africa, North India in Krist Jyoti Province, Nirmala Custody, Assam and Mary Matha, Andhra Pradesh. He has worked very hard in all these places. Even today people and friars who knew him do speak good about his missionary zeal. He was known to be a good formator too. 
I first met him in the year 2007 in Assam Custody. He was then member of the Custody house. With smiling face he welcomed me and made me feel at home. Since then i had occasions to meet him every now and then. Last i met him was in Month of January 2016 in Kerala. He used to play shuttle cock every day in the evening with the friars. He was loved and admired by many friars especially by the students. 
His funeral will be tomorrow at 02.00 PM at Assisi Ashram, Bharananganam.......Please pray for his departed soul...
