, Sep. 2.

The Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, arrived at Chennai airport at 3.30 a.m. on September 2, 2022. He was welcomed to the Salesian Province of St. Thomas, the Apostle, Chennai (INM) by Rev. Fr. K.M Jose, the Provincial, Rev. Fr. Don Bosco, the Vice Provincial, Rev. Fr. Edwin Vasanthan, the Economer, Fr. John Christy, the Youth Pastoral Delegate Provincial and INM Salesian confreres.

The Rector Major celebrated the Holy Eucharist in the Emmaus Chapel of the Provincial House at 11.45 a.m. In the introduction of the Holy Mass, Father Provincial thanked the Rector Major for his presence, especially for his joyful accompaniment of the Chennai Province during the last six years. 

Looking at the 35 Salesians present for the Mass, along with Archbishop Emeritus Dr A.M Chinnappa SDB, Rector Major remarked that he was celebrating the Holy Eucharist for a small Province by itself, which is the case in many other parts of the Salesian world. He thanked God for the bountiful blessings experienced in the Salesian Provinces of India and in the glorious Province of Chennai.

During his homily, reflecting on the Gospel, where the Pharisees and Scribes always had negativity at the Lord’s doings, the Rector Major invited all to look at the world through the eyes of the Almighty Himself and to see others as God would see. Seeing the world reality with faith will open the hearts to experience the Lord’s marvellous doings in our lives like our father and founder, St. John Bosco, he said.

At the end of the Mass, the Rector Major imparted the Blessing of Mary Help of Christians, and Archbishop Emeritus Dr A.M. Chinnappa SDB intoned the hymn to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Salesians felicitated the Rector Major with the traditional Indian silk shawl.
