Mission Accomplished!

"Congratulations, you have done well..."

Those were the words that greeted me when one of my professors came out from the classroom after deliberating together for about 5 minutes on my lectio that Friday afternoon. They were words of great consolation after a gruelling hour and a half of presentation which was followed by some questionings later by three professors who were assessing me.

With that, I officially completed my entire Spirituality course (2 years in all) at the Pontifical University of St Thomas of Aquinas (also more commonly known as the Angelicum). It had been quite a journey and now this had ended and thankfully, it ended on a bright note!

Now I am free from all forms of studies (at least till I get back to S'pore) and savouring the mood that comes after finishing the exams. The whole body and mind now just seem to wind down a lot after the past weeks of adrenaline and stress-filled activity, that I feel exhausted, both mentally and physically.

However, it wasn't all that bad as I could still stay a little up-and-about during this night, earlier, to do some packing of my stuff which I am sending back by airfreight later. In the midst of it all, the feeling of satisfaction after finishing something as important as a licentiate studies like this, continues to pervade my senses. I thank you all for your prayers, support and encouragement during this while and my sojourn here in Rome. And I also know that I really, really would not be able to accomplish all this if not, in the final analysis, for the very grace of God...

@Alf: you are on! :-D

No fans here in Rome to greet Fr Val. Just us wretched poor priest-students stayng alive through our studies till we get to go back (like myself) :-D
