Steering the Way - Rector Major in God's Own Country
By Bastin Nellissery
Bangalore, Nov. 6. Kerela, Day Two - Coming together and sharing is the best thing to happen, said the Rector Major, as he began the second day of visit in the province of Bangalore with the Holy Eucharist at Don Bosco Aluva. The Salesian Family members of Kerala region participated in the Holy Eucharist concelebrated by Father Maria Arokiam, the Regional, Father Joyce, the Provincial, Father Tom Uzhunnalil, Father Horacio Lopez, the secretary of the RM and other Salesian priests. The RM exhorted everyone to be transparent like Jesus. In an exclusive audience with the family members of Father Tom Uzhunnalil, the Rector Major thanked them for their prayerful support and concern during the agonizing days of Fr Tom with his abductors.

The Rector Major was spellbound by the unity and faith of the parishioners of Keezhmad, the Salesian parish attached to Don Bosco Aluva. He invited them to live their family life in accordance with faith united by love.  

The children of Sneha Bhavan, Valsalya Bhavan and Don Bosco Palluruthy mesmerized the Rector Major with their stunning welcome and stage performance coupled with simplicity and innocence. The Rector Major strummed the guitar to Spanish song and entertained the gathering.

Steering the Salesian Congregation in its mission from 2014, the Rector Major took on the wheel as he enjoyed the houseboat trip in the backwaters of Kochi, the Queen of Arabian Sea. What awaited him was a mammoth welcome at the Valdocco of Kerala, Don Bosco Vaduthala, Kochi. In his presence with other dignitaries, both spiritual and secular, concluded the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of the Youth Centre at Don Bosco Vaduthala. The cultural fiesta laced the celebration with special singing of the Rector Major along with the internationally famed singer Charles Antony, a homegrown youngster of Vaduthala.

No fatigue can clamp down the enthusiasm of any Salesian when it comes to being with the young. The Rector Major, Il capo dei Salesiani, showed no trace of weariness even after the hectic schedule of the day. He leaves for Bangalore on the morning of Monday.
