Servant of God Mgr Raymond Francis Camillus Mascarenhas, the former Vicar General of the Diocese of Mangalore and the Founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany was a holy priest of the Diocese of Mangalore. His memory is fresh in us, though he went to his eternal abode in the year 1960. He is remembered for his pastoral zeal and commitment.


Mgr Mascarenhas was a renowned educationist of his time and visualized education as a means to give life and transform the ignorant, especially the poor and the girls.

REMINISCING IN TRANQUILITY

REMINISCING IN TRANQUILITY

Reminiscing in Tranquility contains Sr Violette‘s memories of Servant of God Raymond FC Mascarenhas, founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany. From the title itself, it is clear that the content of the book comes from a relaxed mind, a mind that is at peace with self, with history, including the painful part of the Congregation‘s history and that of the life of the Founder, and finally, at peace with God.

On 19 th March 2014, Sr Lillis BS requested me to write an article on Mgr RFC Mascarenhas for The Compassionate Pastor. She assured me that she would give me three months for the assignment; so I said fiat. She gave me a number of topics for the article, but I preferred to work on his contribution tothe Church in the area of liturgy. When I requested Sr Lillis for material on the subject, she promised to send immediately; and in a few days, Sr Hilarita BS came to me personally with lots of material, both in English and in Konkani. Indeed, I had more material than needed for an article!
