 ‘Da mihi animas Cetera tolle’

We have been called to heal wounds, to unite what has fallen away, and to bring home those who have lost their way. Many who seem to us to be children of the Devil will still become Christ's disciples. 15
St. Francis of Assisi

Kondadaba-2018: We the brothers of St. John’s Regional Seminary had grand celebration of St John Bosco’s Feast. It is really a memorable event that each of us could unleash our potentialities and harness our talents on this feast by praising and thanking God for the gift of Salesian fathers who mould the brothers of SJRS. It is really enriching experience because; through celebration of this grate saint, we realize the indebtedness towards the salesians, for their tireless service and tenderness of love of God that they show towards youth formies of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh states. On this precious day, the whole community had come to know little more about Don Bosco. It also helped us to know the role of Don Bosco in the lives of Salesians and our formation to become future priests. So much so that each of us distinguished ourselves from routine rhythm of participating in all the programmes of the day. It is the time where everyone elicits their hidden potentialities and love for Don Bosco.  There were games conducted on this day. They were cricket and volleyball. All the staff participated in these games. It was well organized and conducted by Youth Alive Group.


The staff had thought of feeding the poor and aged men and women of the locality. So, they were invited for lunch. It reminds the Gospel passage from the Bible, feed the poor who cannot pay, than your reward will await you in heaven on the last day. This is what exactly the kind gesture aims at, and communicates to the others. All the elderly people around 15 were very happy in coming to have delicious meal. They said that, they felt as if their own house and children who feed them. Their faces brightened with smiles. The fragrance of joy filled the whole compass, by lightening our hearts on this day. May this Spirit of this kind gesture be blessed was the last blessings of these elderly people to this community.
