On the 28th of October, in Talisay, Cebu, where a good number of Jesuits were gathered after their retreat, Fr. Manol Montesclaros, S.J. (with Bro. Noel Cantago, S.J.) pronounced his final vows in the Society of Jesus. This means he is now fully incorporated into the body of the Society. The years prior to this were merely a 'scholasticate,' a probation period. With the final vows, he has fully "entered" the Society of Jesus with the desire to live and die in it, by the grace of God. Congratulations, Fr. Manol!
