Ordination of Fr Cyprian Monis sj - Gujarat Province.

First Mass

      Cyprian Monis writes from Zankhvav, Gujarat,India

i was ordained on the 27th December 2010, at Aloysius college Mangalore. there were two more Jesuits of the karnataka province. Fr. Prashant, the pre-novitiate director, had well prepared us for the day. the ordination ceremony was very solemn and devotional. the devotional atmosphere filled new enthusiasm and spirit in me and i did feel the presence of Christ himself placing his hands over me. i believe, other too, including the congregation, had similar experience. i was extremely happy to see my Jesuit brothers who took trouble to come over there and take various responsibility. thank you very much dear Frs.!

next day, i celebrated my thanksgiving mass. i thanked my mother, brothers and sisters and all the dear and near once for all that they did to me. we had an hour of stage program and a delicious meal for the congregation.
at the end, i am glad to say that, all that began well ended well. i thank the provincial, socius and especially the benefactors who made this day a memorable one for me and my family. i also thank all my well wishers for remembering me and praying for me on 27th. December, 2010. i wish you one and all a joyful new year and promise that you are remembered in my prayers always.
thank you very much
in Christ Jesus
your brother
Fr. Cyprian Monis sj
