An Author by name Mr. Javeed Wilson expresses a thought about Spiritual Retreat: “No past is dark enough to withstand a transforming encounter with God.” Accordingly the retreat of all Guardian along with the Provincial Delegates, Directors, Parish Priests and Principles was indeed a spiritual inner expedition, began on 19th August, 2019 at 3:00 pm with the Holy Eucharistic celebration presided over by the Retreat Preacher/Animator, the person known as Barefoot Preacher, a well know reformist, humanitarian, socialist, and who has authored 79 books in English and Tamil language he is Rev. Fr. Jerry Rosario SJ. He briefed the brothers the true sense and meaning of retreat and also involved everyone vibrantly to journey with the Lord during each days of retreat meaningfully. With the different themes for the days like, conversion, creativity, courage, cross and covenant. The adoration brought glimpses of grace. As a trade mark of the retreat brothers were motivated by the animator in donating blood voluntarily on Friday 23rd August, 2019. Though 26 brothers voluntarily came forward, 18 of them successfully donated their blood to St. Joseph’s Hospital Blood Bank. It was a unique experience for the brothers of sharing their own blood to the benefit of poor people. Along with atmospheric peace and serenity in and around the Portiuncula, Retreat & Renewal Center, Jettihundi, Mysore the days of retreat were spiritually and truly memorable ones.
