On 8 September 2021, the feast day of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our Burmese Brother Fermin Saw Simon Htoo renewed his profession in Macau. The renewal ceremony took place during the conventual Mass at St Dominic’s Priory, in the presence of the community and of some members of the Dominican Family. I promise obedience to God, to Blessed Mary, and to Blessed Dominic’s were Brother Fermin’s words, following the formula of profession used in the Dominican Order. Obedience not only to God but also to Blessed Mary. This shows the place of honor that Mary has always been given in the Order, which was placed under her tutelage from its foundation. Very fittingly, on this feast day of her Nativity, our Brother Fermin manifested his intention of dedicating his life to Jesus Christ, to whom also Mary dedicated her life. Our warmest congratulations.
