DON BOSCO’S FEAST FOCUSSES ON STRENNA 2014

The auditorium at Don Bosco Alaknanda morphed into a spiritual sanctuary as the three Salesians of the school walked into the strains of ‘Come and Celebrate’ to partake in the Holy Eucharist to celebrate St. John Bosco’s Feast Day.

Twinkling candles and lights and flowers embellished the ambience as the choir sang like merry minstrels to invite the sanctity of our greatly loved Founder St. John Bosco.

                                             

Interspersed between the Holy Mass were beautiful hymns in Hindi and English that were sung by boys with lusty voices. In his homily, Principal and celebrant Fr. Babu Varghese drew our attention to the Strenna given by the Rector Major Pascal Chavez ‘Let us draw upon the spiritual experience of Don Bosco, in order to walk in holiness according to our specific vocation“The glory of God and the salvation of souls.”

To explain the depth and the beauty of the Strenna, Fr. Babu also extolled the virtues of the St. John Bosco. He dwelt on ‘pastoral charity’ and appealed to all of us to walk in his ways so that we could love him truly and wholly. The Feast in many ways became a commemoration and a celebration because of the inspiring message and also the Offertory that picked on the symbolism of faith, humility and charity. Elements like manure, soil, a flower pot, and a model of the school with Salesians and pupils created in paper by a class 9 student, became a setting of great divinity and continued inspiration.

                       

The Bible readings, prayers and hymns reflected the paradigms of devotion and familial love. The mass ended with the historic hymn to Don Bosco composed by  Bishop Patrick Buzon SDB. As the school choir resonated its words, everyone descended to partake of a hearty breakfast. We walked away with the words ringing in our ears:  “We call Don Bosco a gentle name for the children of today.”
