Memorable Courtesy Visits!
In the first days of September, we were visited by His Excellency Victor Hugo Basabe, the bishop of the diocese of San Felipe (Venezuela), that for the first time has a seminarian with us at Sedes Sapientiae, our colleague Rubén Rodriguez. Afterwards, within the month of September and the beginning of October, we had the privilege of welcoming different bishops paying a courtesy visit to their seminarians and our rector. In a special way, on the 14th of September, we had some guests in the persons of Msgr. Ramon Benito Angeles Fernández, Faustino Burgos Brisma CM and Jesus Castro Marte, the auxiliary bishops of the Archdiocese of Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic). Their visit left us with a precious image of Our Lady of Altrgracia. Few days after, we were also visited by Msgr. Arturo Mandin Bastes S.V.D., bishop of Sorsogon (Philipines). On the same note, Cardinal Odilo Pedro Scherer, archbishop of São Paulo in his visit shared some words of encouragement with us before giving us his blessings. Furthermore, our Sunday Eucharistic celebration was presided over by Archbishop Mario Alberto Molina Palma O.A.R. finally, His Excellency, Luis Gerardo Cabrera Herrera O.F.M, the archbishop of Guayaquil (Ecuador) gave us a memorable day through his presence in our college.
