Sanctuary of St. Paul, the Apostle, Makati CityDuring a Eucharisitc Celebration presided by the Provincial Superior, Fr Jose Aripio, the SSP Philippines-Macau Province welcomed Cl. Paolo Asprer as he professed the vows of poverty, chastity, obedience, and fidelity to the Roman Pontiff in perpetuity. The solemn rite, held in the afternoon of December 8, 2013, was witnessed by his family and friends, as well as representatives from the Pauline Family. 

Fr. Andres Inting, the homilist for the occasion, explained to those in attendance the importance of the religious vows and how they become ways in which the person expresses his complete offering of himself to the Lord and to the Church. 

Before the Mass was concluded, the felicitations of the Superior General, Fr. Silvio Sassi, was read before the assembly. He reminds Cl. Paolo by saying “This decisive step of definitive consecration brings you closer to the Pauline priesthood. Look at this great gift of the Lord with gratitude and, as you look forward to it, intensify your preparation. Our founder, Blessed James Alberione, never tired of repeating that, other than holiness and generous dedication, our apostolate asks for a double knowledge: the science common to all and the science of the means of communication, in their multiple variety and in their impact on the religious, cultural and moral lives of people.”
