20160309 -FR. ALBERT JOU SJ - HE NOW RESTS WITH GOD
Fr. Albert Jou Parramon S.J. (1929 – 2016)
He returned to his heavenly father on 9th March 2016 at 11.30 p.m. Born on 28th May 1929 in Boixols, Spain, Albert Jou, was inspired by his uncle, a Martyr, Blessed Joseph Batalla Parramon , a priest of Don Bosco to join the Society of Jesus at Veruela ( Spain) on 25th Oct 1948( Joined at the age of just 19 ). After receiving the first vows in his own country on 1st November 1950, he came to India in 1952(He was 23 years old Young Jesuit).
Fr. Albert Jou Parramon S.J. spent 68 years in the Society of Jesus. He served God by serving people around. He was a confessor, a counselor, a spiritual guide, a historian and a good writer. His purpose of life was to bear witness to the Person of Jesus Christ. I am sure, Jesus Christ will say to him, “Well done my faithful servant. Enter now into the kingdom of My Father.”
May his optimism and love of God get rooted in us. May his soul rest in peace, in Our Lord !-
Fr. Andrew Rodrigues, S.J.
