July 16 and 17 were very significant days for all the participants in the CALASANCTIAN ROUTE and for the two communities of the General Houses in Rome. Our confrere NGUYỄN VĂN VIỆT received priestly ordination on July 16, the anniversary of the canonization of St. Joseph Calasanz, from the hands of H.E.R. Msgr. Lazzaro You Heung-Sik, Prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy of the Holy See. And on the 17th, he celebrated his First Eucharist in our Shrine of Frascati, placing his ministry under the protection of the Queen of the Pious Schools.

With these two celebrations the Calasanctian Route of this year 2022 was closed, in which 30 young Piarists from different Piarist demarcations have participated.

Let us pray for Fr. Việt, asking the Lord to grant him the precious gift of vocational fidelity.
