Today, on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord and XIX World Day of Consecrated Life, Fr. Aloisio Back, the Master of Postulants, celebrated his 42nd Anniversary of First Profession of Vows. During his homily, recalling this very important in his life moment, he thanked God for all the graces and blessings that he has received. He also explained briefly the meaning of the three religious vows: poverty, chastity and obedience and of community life. The message coming from the heart and based on the life experience was a great testimony to what the religious life is about,
Today also is the anniversary of First Profession of Most Rev. Vilsom Basso, the bishop of Marañhao in Brazil, and Fr. Jose Benedito de Moreas Machado, who at the present is serving the Christian Community in Toronto, Canada. As we congratulate the three of them, we support them and their apostolates with our prayers.
