Today, during this Easter vigil, I renewed my vows for one year. Though my vows are not yet expired (until May 3, 2016), I reapplied for renewal since there was a renewal here in our Annual Retreat at the Jesuit Retreat House here in Malaybalay City, Mindanao. I left my batchmates in the scholasticate (my companions in my first profession of vows last May 2014) and joined the young Brothers in active ministry, which now makes me a member of the Temporary Professed Brothers in Active Ministry (TPBIAM).
Please pray for me and my 10 companions who renewed their vows too, two of which are about to profess perpetually next year.
Thanks! Happy Easter to you.
