Happy Birthday to Fr. Raffaele Della Torre.......


He is always a smiling friar...fatherly figure....some young friars call him Grandfather....some call him Novice Master and spiritual Guru.....he is worthy of all these names.....he is a fantastic friar...always ready to help and serve you...a good nurse too...he takes care of the sick friars....And today he celebrates his birthday.......with a smile he began the Eucharist and ended on the same note...

He is responsible for the cloistered sisters and he makes a point to find time for them...visitation and preaching retreats to them.....




n the Gospel reading Jesus assures us that he himself will be our refuge in the midst of life's challenges and burdens, "Come to me, all you who work hard and who carry burdens and I will refresh you." Jesus invites us to "take his yoke" and to learn from his gentleness and humility.

For all of us life has its share of challenges, difficulties and uncertainties. Life also has its joys and achievements. We get tired, we get discouraged, we get stressed. Life involves an inevitable process of change, very often unpredictable and uncontrollable.

Every day, as evening comes, let us always remember to thank the Lord for the day of life given us. May the evening be an opportunity to rest our bodies and recharge our minds. Let us surrender our anxieties and stresses, inhibitions and problems to his kind heart and pray that we may be able to face the new day with its new chances and opportunities, problems and difficulties and moments to enjoy and return his love for us.

Jesus, meek and humble of heart, touch our hearts and make them like your own.
Besides being a good preacher he also a good cook.....we love him......as our elder brother....
