Novitiate Batch '86 Keeps Silver Jubilee of Profession in Don Bosco's Room
By Susai
Abroad, Jan. 12. ROME - A group of four Tamil Salesians kept the silver jubilee of their religious profession along with their Novitiate Assistant, 8 January 2011 in the Sacred Heart Basilica Rome (Sacra Cuore) which Don Bosco built. Fr Maria Ambrose doing PhD in Fundamental Theology presided over the Eucharist assisted by four jubilarians Professors of Salesian University (UPS) Jesu Pudumaidoss and Sahayadas, along with PhD students from UPS Frs. Clement Ignatius and Susai.
''Monk or no monk always with Don Bosco'' such is our feeling as we celebrate 25 years of our Religious Profession,'' says the event organizer Fr. Clement quoting one of Don Bosco's boys from the first batch of Salesians who later became the first Salesian bishop and first cardinal.
Presiding over the Eucharist, Fr Ambrose recalled DB's expressions of gratitude saying ''As Don Bosco was moved to tears several times during the Mass thinking about the blessings that he had received from the hands of Our Lord and from Our Lady so too we are moved and thank God for all the blessings we have received from Him.''
Echoing former Assitant's words Prof. Pudu added ''we are privileged to celebrate our thanksgiving mass at the very altar of Mary Help of Christians where Don Bosco celebrated in 1887.''
''In our thanksgiving all of us expressed and felt the 'Fidelity of God' and 'His Wonders' in our day today life. Nothing happens by chance. Everything is a plan of God,'' insisted Prof Sahayadas who is visiting professor at UPS and completing his second PhD in Belgium.
The 1986 novitiate batch under the care of Master Fr Puthenkulam and Frs. Augutine, Antonysamy, Rosario and Assistant Ambrose, 24 made their profession. Of those 18 are still Salesians (13 in Chennai and 5 in Trichy).
