Perpetual Commitment as a Salesian of Don Bosco
By Lucas Naw  - 1 Comments
Abroad, Aug. 15. After years of prayer, reflection and discernment, Bro. Saw Gilbert Ko Ko Win made his Final Commitment with great joy and fervor at Our Lady's Shrine at Anisakan, Pyin Oo Lwin, on the 14th August, 2011, during the Solemn Eucharistic Celebration of the Assumption of Our Lady.
Accompanied by parents, close relatives and surrounded by fellow Salesians and neighboring religious, Bro. Gilbert made his perpetual profession before Fr. Maurice Vallance, Superior of the Vice-Province of Myanmar. He took the words of Don Bosco: ''Give me souls, take away all the rest!'' as his motto.Bro. Gilbert made his perpetual profession before Fr. Maurice Vallance, Superior of the Vice-Province of Myanmar. He took the words of Don Bosco: ''Give me souls, take away all the rest!'' as his motto.
In fact, Bro. Saw Gilbert is doing his Theological Studies in Turin, Italy. Finishing the Second Year Theology, he came back to Myanmar to make his Perpetual Profession and to witness to the young his total love for Christ.
The Solemn liturgy began at 6.30 a.m. with a symbolic procession during which the parents of Bro. Ko Ko Win brought their son and handed him over to the Provincial.
In his homily, Fr. Maurice Vallence said that there has been ten years gab: there has been no taken place perpetual profession for ten years in the Vice-Province of Myanmar. Therefore, it is the grace of God that the young Bro. Gilbert can commit himself for ever to God. He explained that the meaning of Perpetual Profession is giving to the Lord our whole life; it is not a part-time service, but total and complete dedication of our whole being to God.
After the Mass, Bro. Gilbert expressed some words of heartfelt thanks in which he thanked the Lord for calling him to the Salesian religious life. He was so grateful to his parents for their love for him and specially for allowing him to join the Selesian Seminary. His heartfelt-thanks also went to the Superiors and his fellow Salesians for their guidance and help in his vocational discernment and maturity. Finally, he thanked all those present at his profession ceremony and for accompanying him with their prayers.
All those present for the Eucharistic celebration and felicitations were later treated to a sumptuous meal by the St. Joseph's Novitiate Community, Anisakan. The evening entertainments and wishes were planned and organised by the Nazareth Community in collaboration with the FMA and the St. Joseph's Communities as well.
