Salesian addresses Indian Bishops on ``Psychosexual Integration and Celibate Maturity``
By Jose Parappully
New Delhi, Oct. 22.  Salesian priest Jose Parappully, the Director of Sumedha Centre at Jeolikote, Uttarakhand, was invited to address the Catholic Bishops of India at a seminar on ``Priests for Our Times- the Role of Bishops`` organised by National Vocation Service Centre, Pune, from 17th to 21st October. The topic assigned to him was ``Psychosexual Integration and Celibate Life.`` 33 Bishops participated in the seminar.

The topics Fr Parappully explored with the Bishops included: Some contemporary challenges such as general immaturity among priests, celibate loneliness, clericalism, sexual harassment and sexual abuse; healthy formation process, rethinking vocation recruitment, assessment and accompaniment of candidates to the priesthood and the need to put in place policies and procedures to prevent sexual abuse by the clergy, to deal effectively with allegations of abuse and to care for victims of abuse.

The workshop helped the Bishops to become more aware of and to feel the urgency to address more seriously the issue of Psychosexual and Celibate Integration of priests and candidates to the priesthood.

Other speakers at the seminar included Bishop Raphy Manjaly of Varanasi (Passion for God - Priestly Holiness), Fr MC Abraham CSC (Cognitive-Affective Maturity for Pastoral Leadership), Mr Andrew Pinto (Stress Management),Archbishop Peter Fernando (Skills for Promoting Interpersonal Relations), and Fr Joe Mathias SJ (A New Pedagogy for Integral Human Formation for Priests in India today).

There was also a panel of lay persons who spoke on the theme `` What Type of Priests India Needs today?``

At the end of the seminar, the bishops drew up a list of recommendations for holistic human formation of priests.
