Praying for the Society
The Jesuits in the province infirmary are doing probably the best thing a Jesuit can do - i.e. to pray for the Society, its members, its works, and the world at large. After spending their best years in active ministry, it is here that the senior and ailing Jesuits are cared for. Fathers and brothers who suffer from a temporary illness or injury are also nursed back to health here.
The infirmary in Vinayalaya campus is well equipped to cater to about ten Jesuits. About 6 Jesuits in Arrupe Niwas, St. Mary’s campus. There are a number of people employed to assist the fathers in their daily tasks. And the day-to-day administration of all of this is seen to by the very able Sr. Maria Lewis CCV and Sr. Mariam FC. Our province Jesuits are deeply grateful to Sr Maria and Sr. Mariam for their tireless service in caring for our senior men. Thanks are due also to the band of workers who do a heroic job in caring for our Jesuit brothers.
You too are welcome to visit our Jesuits in the infirmary. You might just leave them with a smile on their faces; or they might well leave you with a twinkle in the eye.
