[Motherhouse] I will praise you, Lord, among the peoples; I will announce your name to my brothers and sisters. In the joy of Easter we accompanied Sr Valdirene Da Silva from the Province of Recife, Brazil and Sr. Katarzyna Chmielewska from the Province of Warsaw who, after a year of preparation at the International Mission Center at the Motherhouse, received their Mission Crosses to go on mission in the Provinces of Central Africa and the Cameroon, respectively.
Pope Francis encourages us to rediscover the joy of announcing the Gospel. This time of our Assemblies invites us to have the courage to dig new furrows in the great mission of the world, to go to the peripheries of human and spiritual poverty to witness to the Charity of Christ by our service, our life and our proximity.
We will follow them with our prayers so that their zeal for evangelization will blossom into a true sanctity of life, nourished by prayer, supported by a profound life of faith and a lifestyle coherent with the values of the Gospel and our charism.
We confide them to the Virgin Mary, only Mother of the Company and Star of the New Evangelization. May she guide their path and aid them on their way, orienting their hearts towards what is essential.
Safe travel and a happy mission!
