Dear Confreres
Easter Joy
The Sacrifice of Jesus through His Passion and Death was not the end of everything. It culminated in
something very spectacular and an out-of-the-ordinary kind of experience: The Resurrection! New Life,
New Hope, Renewed Joy, and a New beginning was what it meant to Jesus’ close followers. We too like
the disciples on the way to Emmaus recalling the things that led to Jesus’ suffering and death; but we also
recall the Easter Joy they experienced as they discovered that Jesus was alive and in their midst. May our
Easter Joy be complete as we let this experience touch upon our lives.
It is now the time of transfers – some of us are in it, and some are out of it; but most of us will be affected
by it. Transfers involve change and sometimes challenge; change because we move from one place to
another; challenge because we move from one assignment to another. It also involves new responsibilities
which the new assignment demands of us; and it involves sacrifice – giving up what I was happy doing,
and accepting the new job entrusted to me, especially when it is outside my comfort zone. Yet we know
that change, challenge, responsibility and sacrifice are all part of the reality of life. The more we
encounter it, the stronger we become.
Our attitude Counts
Someone sent me a SMS that said: “A happy person is happy not because everything is RIGHT in his life;
he is happy because his attitude towards everything in life is RIGHT”. I see a lot of truth in this statement.
I must appreciate the generosity of the members for graciously accepting the new assignment entrusted to
them. Their willingness to surrender themselves to the Will of God was evident as they accepted their
new responsibilities. For, as far as the transfers are concerned, it was not what I wanted that has
happened; but, with the help of God, the best thing has happened. It is true some things could have been
thought of differently; but in the given circumstances, this seemed the best. Either we can make the best
of this change, or allow the change to take its toll on us. Or to put it differently, either the change itself
will bring about good, or we will need to bring good out of the change. Our attitude has to be RIGHT!
Best Wishes
While I wish all those taking up new assignments the very best, I am particularly mindful of the newly
ordained priests, as they take up their first appointments. Everything’s going to be new to them. Let us
stand by them, support them and guide them in the initial years of their priestly ministry. I also thank all
the outgoing confreres for their selfless and dedicated service.
My Mother….May her Soul Rest in Peace
I also take this opportunity to thank all of you for your love and prayerful support, during the difficult
time of my mother’s death. Many of you offered prayers and expressed your condolences to me and my
family. I cannot thank each of you individually, but know that I am very appreciative of your kind
concern. May the departed soul of my mother rest in Peace.
Wish you all a Grace filled Easter Season!
Yours Fraternally
Fr. Pedro Camilo Simoes, SAC
