Jingling at the Eternal City
December 15, 2015 Tuesday was the day of jubilation, celebration, exultation, vociferation, jollification and felicitation as the International community of Scala celebrated the Christmas at the community level. The festivity commenced with the Eucharistic banquet presided by Fr Ephrem along with seventeen concelebrants who are the priest students of Santa Maria della Scala. Fr Michael in his homily unraveled the attitude of the shepherds and Mary; and inviting all to have an inner silence of Mary as we celebrate the mystery of Incarnation. The prayers of the faithful included ten intentions in different languages of Africa and India. Fr. Rudolf Pinto added flavor to the liturgy through the melodious choir which enabled the participants for a meaningful celebration. The spiritual celebration indicated the way to the decorated dining hall of the monastery where the entire community shared the festive dinner filled with variety of dishes. Fr Ivan Pinto, the rector of Scala prayed the grace before meals and expressed the words of gratitude to all for their collaboration in the community. Thus the anticipated Christmas celebration concluded with a cheerful note.
