The second day of the Chapter of Marymatha

The morning began with Morning Eucharist and prayer presided over by me....the liturgy was well prepared by the commission....everyone participated with zeal and ardour.......I preached on the Love of Christ should impel us and nothing else....Do you Love me Peter......? then tend my sheep.... 

 The morning session was dedicated to listening the provincial report......which took the whole morning session followed by the discussion and clarifications on the same.....

 We discussed about introducing the election of the provincial minister by an absolute majority instead of 2/3 majority.....the chapter was not in favour of changing the present system but preferred status quo....

 An economic report prepared by Br. Balakishor.....was well appreciated.....very clear and transparent......everyone had a congratulatory word for him....
 After the economic report we opened the straw ballots for the provincial as well as for the councillors...it took about 2 and half hours.....it was tedious and hectic........
