On arrival at the airport the Rector Major was taken to the Salesian house at Aluva. Having had enough rest at Don Bosco Aluva, the Rector Major spent the evening with the Salesians at Don Bosco Vennala, Kochi. He expressed his happiness in meeting his sons and other Salesian fraternity. In his exclusive meeting with the confreres, he said that we have a beautiful congregation and it is much appreciated in the Church, and the Salesian work carried out all over the world is in imitation of the Valdocco mission. The Holy Father, Pope Francis, has on several occasions expressed his love for the congregation, he said. While appreciating the unstinting mission carried out by Salesians all over the world, the Rector Major shard a few concerns and challenges of the modern world affecting the Salesians like clericalism, hunger for power and money.

Clad in the traditional attire of God's Own Country, the Rector Major played to the tunes of percussions, folk art and music, spending his time with his sons in the footsteps of Don Bosco.
