BIS #2227 A MOMENT OF GRACE THROUGH FR. ASHWIN

Justus Mendis sdb

NARUKOT, JANUARY 19, 2011: On January 16, Don Bosco Narukot was blessed through the first Eucharistic celebration of Fr. Ashwin Macwana. The exemplary act of offering one’s total life at the feet of the Lord for a Service made definitely a deep impact on the pupils of Narukot.
The gospel sharing about the life of Fr. Ashwin himself was a great motivation force for the students. They took a decision to study hard and achieve what they have targeted. The mass was very well animated and was made meaningful with prayer dance, hymns and animated offertory processions.

After mass, Fr. Ashwin gave a talk to all the students in general about the need to discern their vocation. His enlightening words created reflective moment there at that place. His later talk to the catholic students was much more geared to the vocation of priesthood and lay brothers in the Salesian family. The impact made some even say “yes” to give a try in such radical way of life.
Fr. Ashwin’s stay truly brought Don Bosco’s holiness and a sense of commitment in the hearts of the children. The staff and the students are waiting for him on some occasion such as a monthly recollection.
