India to Lacedonia
this greetings are not only for the residents who we have already had the
pleasure to know and appreciate, but also to all those who live all over Italy
and all over the world.
We'll introduce ourselves immediately.
We are two young priests who came from India, our destination: Lacedonia.
Our names are:
Father Giuseppe Geison Kizhakel and Father Giuseppe Boben Kollapallil.
We are here for the spiritual care of the parish of "Santa Maria Della
Cancellata", and we are guests of the "San Carlo da Sezze" monastery, in Corso
We belong to the new Institute "Araldi della Buona Novella" (Heralds of Good
News). It's a religious movement born in India in 1984 only; it's purpose is to
help dioceses and parishes who need the most help. It all started with the
initiative inspired by the founder, Reverend Dr. Jose Kaimlett H.G.N.
At the beginning there were only four priests and two students;now, with the
help of our Lord, we can already count 151 priests and 700 students.
We assure our service, also in various Italian dioceses, with 24 priests.
We are in Lacedonia, for the strong interest shown byM.R.P. Franco Pepe,
minister of the province O.F.M., in Benevento, and with the permission given by
our founding father.
We were welcomed really well by the Bishop of the diocese, S.E.M. Gennaro
Pascarella and the clergy.
And now, here we are already working.
Even if we have some difficulties, above all, the Italian tongue (who better
than an immigrant knows it?), we are "glad in the hope" to be able to help this
community to grow in their Faith in Christ's Charity and the brothers.
The "Heralds of the Good News" are priests who serve God anywhere it's needed,
with the maximum extent of availability and full joy. And it's what we want to
do with you, who welcomed us with great warmth, with acknowledgement and
You made sure we had everything we needed!
For all you did, we thank you with all our hearts.
Christmas 2002 is getting close, and we take advantage of such occasion, to say
to every family and everybody, that they may spend their Holidays in serenity,
peace and love, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
The Heralds of the Good News
