Poverty, Obedience and Celibacy for the kingdom of God



Brother Ferizardo makes final commitment

30/08/2007: Mozambique

Each one of us has one significant day in his life which carries heavy weight on himself personally but also fascinates others who could have witnessed it. On August 20th Brother Ferizardo pronounced his perpetual vows which drew people from Maputo, although the majority were from Qualimane itself where he was brought up and where he is serving in a government Teachers Training College.

For a long time Br. Ferizardo had been longing for this day. He feels he has discovered a pearl of great value, a great treasure and that is passion for Jesus and passion for humanity whom he feels give meaning to his life. It was a colourful day punctuated by ululations, girls dressed in African capulanas combined with women stole the show as they danced in style at the occasion.

Among the local Brothers still alive, Ferizardo is number three of those who have made their final commitment in our congregation here in Mozambique sector. He is quite energetic as you can see from the picture and full of life. He helps in the formation of the pre postulants and works together with Brother Antonio Sanasana. His parents and relatives presented him to Brother Lawrence Ndawala, our Provincial amidst joy and hearts full of genuine and sincere happiness. His profession was witnessed by all the sector councellors, hence very unique indeed. To live the vows of poverty, Obedience and Celibacy for the kingdom is a rare thing here in Mozambique, especially here in Maputo. His commitment will be a challenge to them that with God everything is possible.

Congratulations and we are all wishing you abundant blessings from God and the protection of Our Good Mother and Saint Marcellin Champagnat. May your profession draw many youth to Jesus as you serve him enthusiastically and with great generosity.

Simeon Banda, fms.
