Bangalore: COVID-19 has kept almost all the world confined to some specific physical spaces. However the spirit moves without boundaries and limitations. This year the Pentecost Sunday was to be a great event for Claretians in India but for COVID-19 lockdown. The day coincided with the Professions and Renewal of Vows for Claretians in India.
In spite of the uncertainties due to the travel restrictions in place for almost three months, our Students, held up at different places, prepared well for their renewals and professions. The usual coming together of students from different organisms could not be realised this year. The retreats and renewal programmes were scattered to different locations; some had it even individually under the guidance of the available formator.
The suffering and pain of the millions of people due to the Coronavirus and the sacrifices and hard work of thousands of medical workers gave a new meaning to the Vows we pronounce. Sure the solemnity of Pentecost added more grace to the whole event. Held at different centres, Bangalore Province had four postulants entering the Novitiate; four Novices making their First Profession; nine Students renewing their Vows and two students making their Perpetual commitment.
