Visit of the SDB Vice-Provincial

The month of February certainly was like the favourite month for guests. Adding to the long list of guests the Seminary was ever happy to welcome, was the presence of Fr Thathireddy Vijayabhaskar sdb, the Vice-Provincial of the Salesian Province of Hyderabad. He spent a day with the community on Sunday February 26, 2012. His main purpose was to meet the members of the community in view of the visit of the Regional Superior (which is due in March 2012).
Besides celebrating the Holy Eucharist of the First Sunday of Lent, he also addressed the students just before lunch and presented to them the new model of Youth Ministry as proposed by the Rector Major of the Salesians of Don Bosco. During his homily, he narrated how the Holy Church, through the season of Lent, recommends that every disciple of Christ learns to transcend the biological urge and fulfill the true human nature we all share with Christ the Son of God. Being a Philosopher himself he drew heavily from the thoughts of the contemporary Philosophers to support his reflections on the Gospel of the day. After lunch he spent time with the Salesian formators, presenting a couple of important documents and tabulating some data, in view of the visit of the Regional Superior, Fr Maria Arokiam Kanaga.
