Jesuit Brother No Longer Missing in India

Brother Mariadoss Antonimuthu, S.J.
A Jesuit Brother who went missing from Tamil Nadu a month ago was found in Orissa Feb. 15. Brother Mariadoss Antonimuthu, 65, came to St. Vincent Pro-Cathedral in Bhubaneswar looking for a priest. Father Joseph Kalathil, vicar general of Cuttack-Bhubaneswar archdiocese and the parish priest who met the Brother, informed a nearby Jesuit house since he mentioned some local Jesuits’ names. “He had an overgrown beard and was shabbily dressed. He looked sick and asked me if there was a house of the Missionaries of Charity,” Father Kalathil told Jesuit Father P. Tony, who took the Brother to Loyola Bhavan, said the senior Jesuit can remember only certain things. “He is safe and taken for medical check-up in Loyola Hospital” in the city, Father Tony told The Brother, who was working with Pathai Illam, a Jesuit-run organization helping the rural poor in Chennai, went missing on Jan. 17. The police in Tamil Nadu had launched statewide search after him.
