Mass at Catechesis Site (July 16)

Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. It is also the first of the three mornings, we are having Catechesis. We stayed and attended Catechesis at St. John Bosco College & Parish Church. This morning the Archbishop of Dublin gave the Catechesis. He talked about the Holy Spirit. To experience the Holy Spirit, we have to treat others as people. We have to be self-giving, like Christ.

Today, I felt extremely bless to meet personally the Superior General of the Salesians of Don Bosco. I asked him to wear my stole while we were concelebrating Mass with the Archbishop. I also met a Chinese Salesian priest, whom Priestly Ordination I attended 18 years ago. It was June 16, 1990. It was on that date, that I started thinking about to be a priest!!! I also met a few other Chinese priests who attended Salesians High Schools in Hong Kong or Macau. Many of us owe our vocations to the Salesians.
