AN EVENING WITH DON BOSCO
By Cl. Leon Rodrigues sdb
Mumbai, Feb. 1. The brothers of Divyadaan, Salesian Institute of Philosophy, along with Rev. Fr. Felix Fernandes, organized an evening academy in honour of our Father and Founder, Don Bosco.
The evening began as the students of Maria Vihar (the Salesian Sisters girls' boarding), gracefully invoked the name of the Lord through their prayer dance. Rev. Fr. Savio D'Souza, the Rector of Divyadaan, then welcomed the gathering as he wished each and every one the blessings of Don Bosco. He called one and all to journey with Don Bosco to the goal, that is; the salvation of our souls in Jesus Christ. The Divyadaan Band, then, took centre stage as they performed two musical pieces; Feelings and Words.
NASHIK, FEBRUARY 1, 2011: The brothers of Divyadaan, Salesian Institute of Philosophy, along with Rev. Fr. Felix Fernandes, organized an evening academy in honour of our Father and Founder, Don Bosco.
The evening began as the students of Maria Vihar (the Salesian Sisters girls' boarding), gracefully invoked the name of the Lord through their prayer dance. Rev. Fr. Savio D'Souza, the Rector of Divyadaan, then welcomed the gathering as he wished each and every one the blessings of Don Bosco. He called one and all to journey with Don Bosco to the goal, that is; the salvation of our souls in Jesus Christ. The Divyadaan Band, then, took centre stage as they performed two musical pieces; Feelings and Words.
The varied religious communities and parishners expressed their love and gratitude to Don Bosco, the patron saint of the parish, through various songs, skits and dances. The programme by the Salesian Training Institute, the Salesian Novitiate, needs special mention as they expressed their filial affection to Don Bosco through their wonderfully enacted skit - A Room full of Colors. The skit depicted the vocational journey of great Salesians who were touched by the persona of Don Bosco. It showed how Don Bosco through his simple ways was able to instill in them a sense of vocation and love for the church.
The highlight of the day's programme was the skit staged by the Divyadaan community, which enacted the Salvation history through mime and dance. Presenting the strenna for the year 2011, the brothers creatively showed forth how our savior Lord Jesus Christ lives and works in the life of the youth and how He is ever-willing to shed his life for the well-being of the youngsters. The brothers' programme reached a crescendo as they rocked and danced to the song, 'We Want to See Jesus Lifted High'.
The Don Bosco Academy was truly a success. The Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Nelson Falcao, at the end thanked each of the participants for expressing their immense love towards Don Bosco. He asked the gathering to continue loving Don Bosco, the Father of the young. The day ended as all sang the hymn, 'Raise Your Voices'.
