Br Jignesh Kumar says YES to the LORD
The Eternal City by now is decked with a festive look as it prepares to welcome Jesus the new-born King. In the middle of the Advent season, the entire Carmelite Order had the reason to rejoice and celebrate the solemnity of St. John of the Cross, reformer of the Order and the mystical doctor of the Church. In fact, on December 14, the joy at the Collegio Internazionale San Giovanni della Croce, Rome, was doubled. Six of its friars pursuing their theological studies, hailing from five different nations, pronounced their Perpetual vows in the hands of Very Rev. Saverio Canistra, the Superior General who also presided over the festal Eucharistic celebration at the Teresianum chapel at 6.00 p.m. Rome time. It was also a proud moment to remember and to cherish for the Carmelites of the Karnataka-Goa Province as Br. Jignesh Kumar of St. Therese of Child Jesus consecrated himself to Jesus for life through the three Evangelical Counsels of chastity, poverty, and obedience. On account of the prevailing COVID-19 restrictions, the celebration was moderate with the presence of the members only of three communities of friars and the Carmelite nuns residing at the Teresianum campus. Nevertheless, it was a momentous and a meaningful celebration with a well-animated liturgy combined with the Gregorian and the Italian chants. The Provincial Superior and the entire Carmelite community of our Province congratulate Br. Jignesh on the occasion of his perpetual commitment to the Lord and wish him a gracious and a fruitful religious life in Carmel.
