Six Brothers say YES to Jesus in Carmel
July 20, 2021 on the feast day of Prophet Elijah, the inspirer and father of the Carmelite Order, the six young Brothers from the land of Tanzania made their first religious commitment in the garden of Carmel. These brothers inspired by the apostles took Jesus as their Lord and Master. They repeated the words of the gospel “Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of Eternal Life” (Jn 6:68) and took these words as their motto as they committed themselves to the Lord in the Order of Carmel. The Solemn Eucharistic celebration was presided over by Rev. Fr Praveen Frank, Regional Vicar of the Vicariate of Tanzania along with other concelebrants. The brothers made their profession in the hands of the Regional Vicar. In his homily, he instructed the brothers that true peace comes from Christ and not from material things. Further, quoting the words from St Augustine, he said, we need to have tranquillity of mind, humility of heart and tranquillity of the soul which are essential requirements for the life of prayer and community life.

After the Eucharist a short felicitation was organized where the professed brothers were felicitated. The Vicariate of Tanzania is grateful to Fr Marlon Rodrigues, the Novice Master for his quality formation towards the novices. The entire Vicariate congratulates these young budding Carmelites and accompanies them through their prayerful and fraternal support.
