The Visit of Our Benefactors
On 27th October 2018, our benefactors of CARF (Centro Académico Romano Fundación) manifested their love for us as seminarians and the Church at large when they paid us a charitable visit. The visit was to help abreast them with the happenings in the college, pray with us in a close distance, and also encourage diversely especially with their self-announcing presence.
The day with them begun with a Mass presided over by our dear Rector Don Javier Canosa, after which we shared lunch together as a family. A reunion followed after the lunch in our great hall where some brother seminarians shared their touching vocation related stories and how their help directly affected their lives.
The now Pope Pious XII once said ‘whoever helps a young man to the Priesthood will for all time share in his masses, prayers, and good works’. But even before we are blessed with the grace of priesthood, our benefactors can always be sure of our prayers for them and their families, and our constant determination to cooperate with grace in giving a substantial meaning to their various supports. We are forever grateful….
