1st Feb. 2020
My dear sisters,
Greetings of peace & Joy to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Already we have entered into the second month in 2020.Time and tide waits for none and we are reaching closer to eternity. I appreciate and thank each one of you for all the good work you are doing.
I wish all of you a very Happy Feast of the Presentation of the Lord in the temple which is also the XXIVth World day of Consecrated life. Let us re-commit ourselves, present ourselves to the Lord and plead for His grace that we may be a worthy, fitting religious in His sight.
- On 26th February we enter into the season of Lent, the three weapons of spiritual warfare are prayer, almsgiving and fasting. Fasting is an expression of spiritual strength to take on the unjust forces and stamina to persevere in the prophetic mission. ( Mt. 9:14-15) For example Mahatma Gandhi fasted when the bridegroom of peace and humanity was taken away by violence of the people as well as British soldiers. Let our spiritual exercise bear fruit and strengthen us to face challenges and struggles in our mission.
