In his homily, Fr. Pascal said, as we gather here today, I am filled with joy to witness your dedication to the path of God.

He further added that in the journey ahead, you will face many trials and tribulations. But remember, strength and unwavering faith in our Lord Jesus Christ will see you through the darkest of times. Be the living witnesses of His love, spreading His name through your actions and words. By doing so, you invite Jesus to walk alongside you in your daily lives. Follow in the footsteps of St. Dominic, focusing not on grandeur or titles, but on humble service to all God’s children. Your mission is to know God intimately and to spread His divine mission throughout the world.

While concluding, he highlighted the Scripture and said that it reminds us of Samuel’s vocation. Just as he answered God’s call, be ready to respond whenever God beckons you for His work. Like Mary Magdalene, listen attentively to the voice of Jesus Christ. Let His teachings guide your every step and His love be the driving force behind all that you do. I extend my heartfelt congratulations to each of you and to the Superior of your congregation. May God continue to bless you abundantly as you embark on this sacred journey of faith and service.
