Father Basanes pays rich tribute to Father Mario
By Father. Bivan R. Mukhim
Guwahati, Sep. 27. Father Guillermo Basanes, General Councillor for the Missions has kept his promise made to Father Mario Porcu, a 98 year old Salesian who passed away on 22nd June 2016 in Guwahati to give to Mary Help of Christians at Voldocco the scarf Father Mario gave to him during their meeting. The meeting coincided with the extraordinary visitation that Father Basanes made to the province and the last birthday of Father Mario on 20th May 2016.
Father Basanes while sending off the missionaries on 24th September at the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians spoke of the significance of the scarf (Bodo Aronai) given to him by the valiant missionary and the promise made to Father Mario. The councillor for the Missions invited the missionaries to imbibe the spirit of Father Mario who dedicated his entire life for the missions. He placed the scarf on the altar during the Holy Mass and later wore it around his neck.

On hearing of the honour given to Father Mario by Basanes, Father VM Thomas, Provincial said, "It is a beautiful promise fulfilled in great style at Voldocco and at the most appropriate occasion of 147th missionary expedition. It is an honour and a remembrance to our veteran Salesian Father Mario Porcu who spent 76 years in India as a missionary. It is indeed a great tribute. God bless our missionaries."
