First Fruits from Vietnam

Fr. Battista welcomes postulants

Fr. Battista welcomes postulantsLegazpi – The Catholic Church celebrated the great feast of John the Baptist on July 24th; it is also a day of special remembrance for the Servants of Charity. On the Patron Feast of his parish, St. John the Baptist, St. Louis Guanella experienced a beautiful vision. He was happily eating some candy, being reminded by the church bell that Mass was to begin. He was trying to hide the candy in a pile of wood. An old man clapped his hands and asked for the candy; St. Guanella was humiliated by being caught and ran away. Later he himself would say, “To me, it was a vision. That poor little old man was showing me the path I was to walk in the future”. On this same solemnity, two aspirants from Vietnam, John Ly Tan Thien and Joseph Pham Dinh Khiet, were accepted into postulancy. Fr. Battista, superior of the Legazpi community, warmly welcomed and received them. These two young men have chosen the path on which they will walk. The seed sown in the field of Vietnam is now sprouting. Let us thank God for the seeds and the people who sowed it in good soil.
