The Pastoral Training Institute conducted a three days workshop on
"Consecrated life and its Psychological dimensions". "The Consecrated
in this world represents God's compassionate face", said His Beatitude
Cardinal Baselios Cleemis Catholicos, KCBC president inaugurating the
seminar at POC. Pope Francis reminds that the face of the Consecrated
should be filled with compassion. Pope declared the year of Consecrated
as the year of Compassion too.
The life, talks and interventions
of Pope Francis are the pronouncements
of God's compassion.
The ability for complete
love and forgiveness is given to
the Consecrated", he continued.
C a r d i n a l w i s h e d t h e
Consecrated to be the face of

Deputy Secretary General, KCBC

OCD Dean of Studies addressed
the gathering. Rev. Dr. George
Manalel led the sessions.
