Engagements in the SSPX

December 08, 2016

On this feast of the Immaculate Conception, the Seminary was privileged to have Fr. Therasian Xavier make his perpetual engagement in the SSPX. Eight seminarians engaged themselves for the first time. 

Fr. Xavier was ordained in Winona in 2011.  His first assignment was Palayamkottai, India, and he has been there ever since.  He was made prior in 2015.  The Seminary was pleased to receive him for this special occasion.

In the sermon of the Mass, Reverend Father Yves le Roux explained how Our Lady, the Immaculate Conception, is the perfect model of generous submission to God.  It is not by chance that Archbishop Lefebvre chose this feast day for the ceremony of engagement.  As her children make for the first time or renew their complete oblation of self to God, they ask her to bring them into the same spirit which penetrated her whole life.
