The confreres of Divyadaan, Salesian Institute of Philosophy, were privileged to witness the release of Father Ian Doulton’s latest compilation ‘Monsi’s Musings’ on 11 December 2019 during the Provincial Visitation. Father Savio Silveira, Mumbai Salesian Provincial released the compilation saying, "through this book the memory of Moncy Pat, as he was fondly called, will continue to live on."

Monsignor Patrick was a diocesan priest who had spent the last years of his life at the aspirantate, Don Bosco Lonavla. He was well-known for his wit, humor and the frequent articles that he contributed to ‘The Examiner’. Although he passed away almost 30 years ago, memories of him continued to linger on with the confreres who encountered him. The long standing dream of compiling his articles into a single book was finally brought to life through the efforts of Father Doulton.
