Vow of stability

Fr Maliekal arrived this morning... as the new Rector of this Seminary.  And with him, comes a vast experience and most importantly a volley of phrases and vocabulary... interesting, enriching, reflective and of course, amusing.  So here's one of the day: Vow of stability.

After supper we were talking of confreres who love to travel.  Those kind who are found in other communities (most often other than Salesian communities) than their own.  Referring to such, Fr Maliekal pointed out that they really lack the 'vow of stability'.  To be able to settle down in one place and be at the task entrusted, rather than tour the whole world for no valid reason.

Now, I'm sure, this is just to begin with. As days go by, there would be plenty such!
