Canlubang 2014 - Happy Worries!

Philippines, Province of Laguna, Canlubang 2014

After celebrating 50 years of foundation of this 'Salesian Valdocco' of the Philippines North (three SDB communities and other 2 FMA communities in one joint compound!) last year of 2013, I was able to spend some time with the Aspirants and Prenovices (45+), with the 20 Postnovices and the Salesian community of the Don Bosco College (from kindergarten, high school to the college) and all (majority young Salesians) committed to education, evangelization and formation!

Indeed the main worry?! now is the lack of space in the dorms, in the study room, in the chapel...  Happy worries!

Thanks to the growing number of vocations in the two Filipino provinces, there are now each year growing the numbers of the candidates, young Salesians.

Yesterday visiting the postnovitiate i got the best gift of this starting month - more than seven young confreres shared in the personal dialogue their missionary vocation dream in different stages of discernment! Thanks be to God!

With a prayer for ongoing growth of the Salesian vocation culture in this largest Catholic country of Asia!

Saint John Bosco, pray for us!
