To live in the midst of the world without wishing its pleasure.
To be a member of each family yet belonging to none.
To share all sufferings, to penetrate all secrets.
To heal all wounds, to bring pardon and hope.
To console and bless always.
On 8th January, Don Bosco S Puram thanked God Almighty for the gratuitous gift of sacerdotal ordination bestowed on the new priests of the province of Bangalore. The Holy Eucharist at 6.45am was presided over by Fr. Shino Kalappurakkal and an inspiring homily was preached by Fr. Joseph Dandavathy in the light of his own vocation story. Fr. Cinto Kannaen inspired the junior aspirants with a short reflection. After the Holy Eucharist, we joyfully gathered around the new priests in order to appreciate and congratulate them for their total submission by saying a big ‘yes’ to His call. ‘Dear Fathers, we not only appreciate you but also look up to you to learn to respond to the Lord’s call with patient endurance, constant prayer and perseverance’ were the sentiments of the all the junior aspirants all through the presence of the newly ordained priests.
