A New Way of Living the Religious Life


As part of the process of redesigning our FSP presences throughout the world, our Indian Province has drawn up strategies to help its members get to know more about the different socio-political and religious situations in the country. This knowledge has helped our sisters begin to adopt a new mentality in carrying out the Pauline mission.

To give impetus to this journey, the Province organized a seminar for the provincial governing team and 21 of the circumscription?s animators. The seminar was conducted by Fr. Varghese Alengaden, the founder of the Universal Solidarity Movement, whose purpose is to promote nation building and harmony among religious and ethnic groups in the country.
Religious fundamentalism is steadily increasing in the multi-religious context of India. Christians there are often the victims of persecution and violence. Many times the Daughters of St. Paul are also subjected to discrimination. To meet this challenge, our sisters have developed a provincial ?plan of action? that fosters a renewed apostolic thrust and a new way of living the religious life in India today.
