INTRODUCTION

The word ANUBHAV signifies, EXPERIENCE. We all long for experiences that fulfil, enrich, strengthen, and ensure love, joy, happiness and peace. The Centre of Spirituality ANUBHAV will be a resort for spiritual experiences. ANUBHAV has the purpose and goal of sharing experiences, enhancing spiritual experiences, deepening contemplative, meditative and prayer experiences, and finally the Institute will help people to reach authentic GOD-EXPERIENCE.

The inauguration of this institute took place on 7th December 2004. Pope John Paul II’s representative for Indian Catholics, Most Respected Nuncio Pedro LÓpez Quintana and our Beloved Archbishop His Eminence Cardinal Ivan Dias inaugurated the Institute at 11.00 A.M.

The first chapter of the new millennium saw Fr. Joe Tauro re-elected to the office of provincial and he presented a programme that promised to ensure the prowess of this unit of our Carmelite family for many years to come.

In his second term he takes a daring step with the support of Fr. Rudolf V. D’ Souza - the parish priest of St. Joseph Church and the Carmelite Community at Mira Road, to establish the long cherished and desired Institute of Spirituality cum Inter-religious dialogue centre. The foundation stone was laid on 5th January 2003 by Rt. Rev. Bishop Bosco Penha. The initial stage of the building came under heavy impediments from many quarters. Those problems were solved one after another through stages and the construction work began on 19th March 2003. A lot of people around Mira Road raised their eyebrows at the starting of the Spirituality Institute. Well, God’s work will continue in spite of all the hurdles. Now we are at the end of a long journey and have come to see St. Joseph church and ANUBHAV. We pray that the Carmelites with the help of God’s people continue inspiring, enriching, encouraging the lives of the faithful around the Globe and especially in Mumbai through such spiritual ventures.

Thought of the day
    Oct 21st, 2017 ROM 4:13, 16-18 Saturday of the Twenty-eighth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 472 Reading 1 Brothers and sisters: It was not through the law that the promise was made to Abraham and his descendants that he would inherit the world, but through the righteousness that comes from faith. For this reason, it depends on faith, so that it may be a gift, and the promise may be guaranteed to all his descendants, not to those who only adhere to the law but to those who follow the faith of Abraham, who is the father of all of us, as it is written, I have made you father of many nations. He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into being what does not exist. He believed, hoping against hope, that he would become the father of many nations, according to what was said, Thus shall your descendants be. Responsorial Psalm PS 105:6-7, 8-9, 42-43 R. (8a) The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. You descendants of Abraham, his servants, sons of Jacob, his chosen ones! He, the LORD, is our God; throughout the earth his judgments prevail. R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. He remembers forever his covenant which he made binding for a thousand generations – Which he entered into with Abraham and by his oath to Isaac. R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. For he remembered his holy word to his servant Abraham. And he led forth his people with joy; with shouts of joy, his chosen ones. R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever. Alleluia JN 15:26B, 27A R. Alleluia, alleluia. The Spirit of truth will testify to me, says the Lord, and you also will testify. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel LK 12:8-12 Jesus said to his disciples: "I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before others the Son of Man will acknowledge before the angels of God. But whoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God. "Everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the one who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. When they take you before synagogues and before rulers and authorities, do not worry about how or what your defense will be or about what you are to say. For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you should say."
