“Today Christ is born, today the saviour has appeared,(Second Vespers of Christmas Day, Antiphon to Magnificat)
today the angels sing on earth, the archangels rejoice;
today upright men shout for joy: Glory be to God on high.”
Dear brothers, the faith of the Church teaches us that Christmas is not just a memory, but above all a ‘today’ that is realized, a promise become reality, a Mystery of love that becomes flesh in each one of us!
Today the Lord realizes in you His promise of salvation; today he pulls us out of the tears and grants us to exult in Him like true children, welcoming the Son who makes himself man in order to destroy our evil and sin. Today the Lord wants to make us children like the Child, little like the Little One, to make us enter the Glory of His Mercy!
In this Holy day we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas with all our heart, and a New Year rich in blessings and graces!
May the Lord, who has given us his riches to enrich us with Him, reward you for the love you have shown towards the Seminary and for the Evangelization, and for becoming a bit poorer in order to encounter our needs.
With great joy we announce, specially to you, who have been close to us through all these years, that after a few days, on 5th January 2019, in the Cathedral of Dar es Salaam, four new deacons from our Seminary will be ordained. And God willing, will become priests in July 2019.
May the Lord fill you with His Peace,
Fr. Michele Tronchin, Rector
