Guwahati, May. 27. Responding to the call of God, five clerics of Guwahati province namely Robert Basumatary, Bablu Ekka, Chailus Momin, Cornelius Myrthong and John Paul Tirkey made their perpetual profession on 24th May 2015 at Don Bosco Institute Kharguli (DBI).
Father V.M Thomas, the Provincial presided over the Holy Eucharist. Nearly thirty Salesians and other priests joined at the Holy Mass celebration. The family members of the clerics were also present on this joyous occasion. The perpetual profession took place in the presence of hundreds of young people present there along with the brothers, sisters, friends and well-wishers.
The vibrant music and hymns sung by the students of DBI added life to the liturgical celebration. Father Provincial started his homily quoting the responsorial hymn, ''Listen, let your heart keeps seeking listen...'' and said that the five brothers who listened to the call of God are here today to commit themselves totally in response to that call. Father Thomas also challenged the youth present to listen to the voice of the Spirit and to response to the call of the Jesus.
As the brothers prostrated themselves to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, Father Bivan Mukhim led the Litany to the Saints. Meanwhile the priests and the faithful joined in constant prayer invoking the Holy Spirit to come upon the brothers.
Thereafter the candidates came forward individually accompanied by their parents and pronounced the vows to commit totally to the Lord. Father Provincial and the concelebrants welcomed the brothers with their fraternal embrace and greetings as a sign to their dedication to the Church and to the congregation as perpetually professed members. The crowd roar into loud applause to congratulate the brothers for this courageous step.
After the Holy Eucharistic celebration Father Provincial thanked the youngsters for being present there to witness the event and invited them to think about their call to be a religious. The entire ceremony came to its conclusion with a short felicitation programme followed by fellowship dinner.
