For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.

The area of the Little Flower Mission Province of Coimbatore was allotted finally and formally to the Devamatha Province of Thrissur as its mission field to be developed and formed into a new province by the letter from Rome (Rescript Prote No. 586/49 on 8 May 1959). The area was erected as a dependant Region of the Devamatha Province on 30 December 1964, with Rev. Fr. Clemens Thottungal as the first Regional Superior, when Rev. Fr. Malachias was the Provincial. The Region was erected into a Vice-Province by the General Synaxis on 11 March 1979. Preshitha Vice-Province was raised to a Province on 8 April 2002.
