A Surprise from India

Recently we had a surprise visit from Father Peter Lobo, OP, who teaches at St. Charles Seminary in Nagpur, India. This is up in the north of the country, although he is originally from the southwest (Mumbai/Bombay).

Father first came to see us about 30 years ago. Although we have not seen him often, went do keep in contact by correspondence and he has sent us several of his books.

Father taught for a number of years at the Dominican Pontifical University in Rome. Many years ago, he founded an English-speaking periodical on Dominican spirituality. It ceased publishing for a few years while he was away from India. However, now that he has returned he has begun publishing Dominican Ashram again. Ashram is an Indian word for a spiritual hermitage, prayer community or monastery.

Father was able to visit us because he is in the United States visiting relatives in different parts of the country. A younger brother, Michael, is retired and lives in the Houston area. So, Michael and Fr. Peter came up to the Monastery for lunch and a good visit.
