Great joy of June

The academic year is over; we have passed our exams, even with good grades; spring is in full bloom. These are some of the reasons for joy in June, but they are probably not the main ones, nor the most intense. In contrast, the news of ordinations to the diaconate or priesthood of former Sedes Sapientiae students fills us with a very deep joy. This month, thank God, there have been many.

Our dear brother Fauster Mwintome Baapele was ordained a priest in the diocese of Damongo (Ghana) on the 11th. Laerth Ferreira was also ordained a priest on 17 June in the diocese of Bonfim (Brazil). In South Africa, two ordinations took place on 18 June: that of Ngcebo Gift Mzobe, presbyteral, in the diocese of Eshowe; and that of Siyabonga Banele Ndlovu, diaconal, in the diocese of Witbank. A few days later, on the 24th, he was joined in the diaconate by Van Vien Tran, ordained in Hanoi (Vietnam). On the same date, Federico Fernando Torres was ordained a priest in the diocese of San Roque (Argentina). The next day it was the turn of Patrick Anasenchor, new priest in the archdiocese of Tamale (Ghana). And to conclude the month there were two more great joys: the priestly ordinations of Karlo Topalović in Požega (Croatia) and Luis Rodrigo Rangel Sandoval in Mexico City, on the 26th and 28th respectively.

Let us accompany them all with our prayers and also with our warmest congratulations. We pray to the Lord that they may be good and faithful servants in His Church and that He may continue to bless the world with the gift of priestly vocations.
