Gilles and witnessed how Fr. Gilbert was ever ready with his written homily for every single mass he offered throughout his entire priestly life, and from this example, he (Cardinal) derived inspiration. Later, Rev. Fr. Gilles expressed his gratitude to the people who inspired and motivated him to publish his works. In his sharing, he delineated the steps and levels of his life explicitly. The events of his priestly life, since its beginning, had been filled with various events that enriched him, how people inspired him, and how he always prepared before the Holy Eucharist. He cordially thanked the organizers of the program. After that, the books were unveiled with a big round of applause, and the whole hall suddenly seemed to be radiating exhilaration.

Eventually, the Provincial Fr. George Kamal Rozario, with his thanksgiving speech, marks the end of the program. Later there was a gorgeous banquet for all the present guests.
