WE COME BACK, WE COME BACK : Trinity Central School
Having soaked in the fun and frolic of two month long summer vacations the Trinitarians rushed into the campus yet again with a renewed vigour and zeal to commence another academic year. The Trinity which was silent thus far rose into life when children poured into her classrooms with broad smiles and excitement (a few tiny tots did not stop crying until given a candy though!). On the first day all the busses were blessed early in the morning before they rolled out to bring the children to school. The blessings of God were invoked for the safety of the children and those who drive and manage the vehicles.

They boost the organization through their, innovative ideas and opinions for the growth and wellbeing of it. The VIMUKTI has always upheld this principle.

Darshan & St. Anthony’s College in search of honey in the Rock:
As we see in the pictures Darshan & St. Anthony’s College has ventured into seeking honey in the rock. The master rock breaker says “honey is found only at the heart of the rock.” So the search goes on and on….breaking and going deeper into the heart of the rock continues. If not the honey at least may we clear the rock from the campus and may we have the space and place for the future ventures of the Institution.

Venafro, Italy. Holy Mass on the Mountain.
The people around here begin the Month of May by climbing up the mountain which is about 500 meters high, right above the Venafro town. A Holy Cross, which is situated somewhere near the top of the mountain, overlooks the entire panorama. Fr. J. B. Sequeira joined this ‘trekking’ group and reached the top after a wearisome two and half hours steep climb, and celebrated Holy Mass for around 150 people gathered near the cross. It was a unique and extraordinary experience.

Peace Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
