The Marian Month was commenced in Don Bosco Boys Home, Kollam on 18th of August with the theme ‘Know and Love Mary’. Fr J Joseph inaugurated the month, wishing everyone a fruitful experience of loving our Bl. Mother.
In the evening we had a special inauguration of the Marian games, with the lighting of the torch. The children are really enthusiastic about the whole event and participated it with great devotion and love.
I personally felt very happy for the wonderful response of the boys. They were very genuine in expressing their ideas and love for Mary in their own way. In fact for them these are not a routine as some time it happens in the formation houses rather they look to it with new energy and long for events such as these.
I am truly taken aback by the genuine way they respond to it. It calls for personal reflection on my life.
