We celebrated the day of the religious meaningfully with a solemn Eucharistic celebration. The call of the religious to a gift to the world and to the people of God was the theme for reflection.
The call to become another Christ is the life mission of every religious. As Mary brought the child Jesus, the light of the world into the Temple, we too came to the church with a lighted candle, bringing light. We need to move out of the church with Jesus, the light of the world to shed lights in the life of the people who are in need of the same. The spreading of the Gospel and the prophet witness through the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience should enable us to bring this light which never fails.
