On : 12-Jun-2023

Another Jesuit missionary from Karnataka in British Guyana, Fr Ramesh Vanan made his final commitment in the Society of Jesus on June 11 in St Joseph’s Boys’ High School (SJBHS) chapel, Bangalore. Fr Vanan has been serving the Guyana mission since 2007.

Provincial Fr Dionysius Vaz celebrated the mass, while Fr Fredrick D’Silva preached the homily. In his homily, Fr D’Silva highlighted the significance of the day’s feast – Sacred Body and Blood of Christ. He said that the significance of the feast of the Body and Blood of Christ was that God gives and gives himself completely out of love, until there is nothing more to give. Surrender, suffering, sacrifice and service were the significant features of Jesus’ life on earth. “Jesus became Eucharist, giving himself up on the cross. Similarly, Fr Ramesh has also become a Eucharist as a missionary in the region of Guyana,” he said.
