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
    May 23rd, 2018 JAS 4:13-17 Wednesday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 343 Reading 1 Beloved: Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we shall go into such and such a town, spend a year there doing business, and make a profit"– you have no idea what your life will be like tomorrow. You are a puff of smoke that appears briefly and then disappears. Instead you should say, "If the Lord wills it, we shall live to do this or that." But now you are boasting in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So for one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, it is a sin. Responsorial Psalm PS 49:2-3, 6-7, 8-10, 11 R. (Matthew 5:3) Blessed are the poor in spirit; the Kingdom of heaven is theirs! Hear this, all you peoples; hearken, all who dwell in the world, Of lowly birth or high degree, rich and poor alike. R. Blessed are the poor in spirit; the Kingdom of heaven is theirs! Why should I fear in evil days when my wicked ensnarers ring me round? They trust in their wealth; the abundance of their riches is their boast. R. Blessed are the poor in spirit; the Kingdom of heaven is theirs! Yet in no way can a man redeem himself, or pay his own ransom to God; Too high is the price to redeem one's life; he would never have enough to remain alive always and not see destruction. R. Blessed are the poor in spirit; the Kingdom of heaven is theirs! For he can see that wise men die, and likewise the senseless and the stupid pass away, leaving to others their wealth. R. Blessed are the poor in spirit; the Kingdom of heaven is theirs! Alleluia JN 14:6 R. Alleluia, alleluia. I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord; no one comes to the Father except through me. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel MK 9:38-40 John said to Jesus, "Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name, and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us." Jesus replied, "Do not prevent him. There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me. For whoever is not against us is for us."
