The Santvana Community of Disciples with their charism for Prayer and Proclamation of the Word has been a great blessing to the Church in the Archdiocese of Delhi and, without any hesitation, to the Universal Church. Their commitment to Evangelization is highly praise worthy and to be emulated by all and sundry in the Church. The Holy Spirit distributes his charisms in a manner unimaginable from a human perspective. We can very well say that the Santvana Community of Disciples, who are basically committed lay people, is certainly the Holy Spirits gift to the Church. This ecclesial community is centered on the Holy Eucharist and draws all its strength from this inexhaustible source of grace and divine power. They spend time in Eucharistic Adoration and Prayer of Intercession. Their foundation is the Word of God in which we always encounter the living God, Father, Son and Spirit in whom we live and move and have our being. From this foundation they go out in various directions to proclaim the Word of God in season and out of season to all who are ever thirsting for the Word who is Jesus Chris our Lord. I commend the Santvana Community for their zeal for the mission of Christ and pray that they may enkindle this fire in the hearts of many more Christian people so that the Church grows and becomes Gods chosen instrument to bring his kingdom here on earth. May God bless the Santvana Community of Disciples in abundance.
