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.

ACTS 15:7-21
Thought of the day
    May 23rd, 2019 Thursday of the Fifth Week of Easter Lectionary: 288 Reading 1 ACTS 15:7-21 After much debate had taken place, Peter got up and said to the Apostles and the presbyters, "My brothers, you are well aware that from early days God made his choice among you that through my mouth the Gentiles would hear the word of the Gospel and believe. And God, who knows the heart, bore witness by granting them the Holy Spirit just as he did us. He made no distinction between us and them, for by faith he purified their hearts. Why, then, are you now putting God to the test by placing on the shoulders of the disciples a yoke that neither our ancestors nor we have been able to bear? On the contrary, we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they." The whole assembly fell silent, and they listened while Paul and Barnabas described the signs and wonders God had worked among the Gentiles through them. After they had fallen silent, James responded, "My brothers, listen to me. Symeon has described how God first concerned himself with acquiring from among the Gentiles a people for his name. The words of the prophets agree with this, as is written: After this I shall return and rebuild the fallen hut of David; from its ruins I shall rebuild it and raise it up again, so that the rest of humanity may seek out the Lord, even all the Gentiles on whom my name is invoked. Thus says the Lord who accomplishes these things, known from of old. It is my judgment, therefore, that we ought to stop troubling the Gentiles who turn to God, but tell them by letter to avoid pollution from idols, unlawful marriage, the meat of strangled animals, and blood. For Moses, for generations now, has had those who proclaim him in every town, as he has been read in the synagogues every sabbath." Responsorial Psalm PS 96:1-2A, 2B-3, 10 R.(3) Proclaim God's marvelous deeds to all the nations. or: R. Alleluia. Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all you lands. Sing to the LORD; bless his name. R. Proclaim God's marvelous deeds to all the nations. or: R. Alleluia. Announce his salvation, day after day. Tell his glory among the nations; among all peoples, his wondrous deeds. R. Proclaim God's marvelous deeds to all the nations. or: R. Alleluia. Say among the nations: The LORD is king. He has made the world firm, not to be moved; he governs the peoples with equity. R. Proclaim God's marvelous deeds to all the nations. or: R. Alleluia. Alleluia JN 10:27 R. Alleluia, alleluia. My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord; I know them, and they follow me. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel JN 15:9-11 Jesus said to his disciples: "As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and remain in his love. "I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete."
