“He made them, the vicars of his love.” — St. Ambrose
The last one of the quaternions to be ordained for the year 2022 was Dn. Aaron Babusha Rodrigues whose sacerdotal ordination was held at the Infant Jesus Shrine, Mangalore on 22nd June 2022 at 10:00 am. While the earth was filled with the petrichor of the water droplets hitting the earth, the shrine was filled with the beautiful smell of the incense as the smoke rose high praising the eternal priest Jesus Christ in whose pattern Dn. Babusha would be ordained as a priest! Most Rev. Dr. Peter Paul Saldanha, the Bishop of Mangalore exercised his rightful duty in ordaining Dn Babusha as Sacerdos in the presence of a joyous faithful during the ceremony in the company of Rev Fr George Santhumayor, the Provincial of KG Province, Fr Charles Serrao, the Prior of St. Joseph’s Monastery Mangalore, Fr Ronald Serrao, the Rector of St. Joseph’s Inter-diocesan Seminary and over 80 priests representing most of the communities of the province. In his homily, Bishop Peter Paul exhorted the crowd of the role and dignity of the priest in whom Christ exercises his ministry fully on earth. Having anointed his hands with sacred Chrism, Br Babusha received the bread and wine with the aid of the Holy Spirit who transformed him as the mediator between God and his people. Fr Babusha thus celebrated his first mass and thanked God with his soulful singing. The entire liturgy was animated by Fr Alwyn Sequeira and the Carmel Choir with their exultant voices solemnized the sacred liturgy. After the mass, Fr Provincial wished the newly ordained priest and thanked the Bishop. Bishop Peter Paul also wished Fr Babusha strength and courage and lastly, Fr Babusha thanked everyone who played pivotal role in his journey to priesthood! After the mass, lunch was served for all those who had gathered for the celebration.

Recently ordained three priests Frs. Ronald Pudthado, Jason Cutinho and Babusha Rodrigues remaining indebted to the Carmelite Order celebrated their thanksgiving mass on 23rd June 2022 at Infant Jesus Shrine, Bikarnakatte where they completed their formation studies in Theology. During the 6:00 PM Novena Mass, Fr Ronald preached a spirited homily on the occasion of the solemnity of St John the Baptist and Fr Babusha Rodrigues celebrated the mass in the company of Fr Jason and Fr Charles Serrao, the prior of St. Joseph’s Monastery.

The KG Province sings glory to God and thanks Our Lady of Mount Carmel for always showering special love to the Carmelite Order especially the Karnataka Goa province with ample vocations. It also congratulates and wishes fruitful ministry of priesthood to Frs Ronald, Jason and Babusha and accompanies them in their service to the Holy Church with prayers and fraternity!
