Today, the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our Br Alfonso Maria pronounced the three vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience perpetually, joining to them the fourth vow and oath of Perseverance in the Congregation until death. Please join us in thanking God for the great grace he has given to Br. Alfonso, and for the great gift which Brother has made of himself to God. May he have a grace filled life on earth, and a crown in the life hereafter!
Br. Alfonso lies prostrate during the chanting of the Veni Creator Spiritus.
