The Lord sheds His graces upon us!
This year has been special for us despite the chaotic situation of the pandemic in the world. A year special and commemorative to give thanks for the inspiration of our Founders, the impressive lives of all the Sisters gone before us, and to rejoice that we, who live the now of the Congregation, have been called and chosen to keep the flame of hospitality alive.
Our commemoration of the 150 years of the Congregation has been different yet, I believe, very meaningful and unifying. Among us Sisters, the one aspect that has been very enriching and promising is the proximity we have developed despite the distances.
We close the jubilee year on 03 May 2021 acknowledging that we are living in a time of grace, a time of transition. We are convinced that the Lord favours us as a Congregation. This gives us a firm certitude that our possibilities as a Congregation are limitless as we co-author with God and our Founders, to design and paint the world with compassion, tenderness, and mercy.
May the experience of this jubilee year remain for us as a spring, to water our efforts to produce newer fruits of hospitality in the world of today. Anchored on God may we have the audacity of Raimundo and Clara, and fulfil the mission of being light and warmth.
