Fr. Prasad Theruvathu OCD

 

Message:

Let nothing within or around disturb us!

Be cool and happy in the Love of the Lord.

Let us serve each other, for we are born

to serve the "Not-Other" in others.

 

Everything in this world passes, including you and me.

God alone remains...in this life and in the next.

With God we can surpass everything here on earth.

With God we can possess everything seen and unseen.

God alone is sufficient here and there!

Without God we are insufficient and inefficient.

HEARTY CONGRATS AND BLESSINGS

TO

VERY REV. FR. SAVERIO CANNISTRA OCD,

OUR SUPERIOR GENERAL

Our General Chapter in Avila (Spain) has re-elected as Superior General our brother Saverio Cannistrà, who was elected General in April 2009 in Fatima and now has been reelected again to guide our Order and accompany us on our way for another six years.

 

We recall that Fr Saverio (Antonio Gennaro) Cannistrà of the Sacred Heart was born in the Calabrian city of Catanzaro on 3rd October 1958. He studied philology at the Scuola Normale and later worked for Einaudi.

 

He entered the novitiate of the Italian Province of Tuscany in the Order of Discalced Carmelites in 1985 and made his simple profession on September 17, 1986. He made his solemn profession in 1990 and was ordained a priest on October 24, 1992.

 

Doctor in Dogmatic Theology from the Gregorian University in Rome, Saverio Cannistrà is a member of the Italian Theological Conference (northern area) and has

participated in numerous conferences of the Order.

 

Knowing several languages, he has taught at the Faculty of Theology of the Teresianum of Rome and in the Faculty of Theology of Central Italy in Florence.

 

We ask your prayers for our brother Fr Saverio and ask St. Teresa of Jesus from heaven to continue guiding our family along the paths that lead to God and that beside her, all of us show with our life that «God alone sufficeth».
