Feast of the Presentation in Valdieri with the Master of the Order

on 23 Nov, 2019

Rome (Italy), 11/23/19, Sr. Ana Patricia Londoño F..- As usual, on November 21 the three communities of Rome: General community, local community of Valdieri and Il Rosario, gathered in Valdieri for the celebration of the Feast of the Presentation and the renewal of our vows. But the joy of this celebration was doubled by the presence of Fr. Gerard Francisco Timoner, Master of the Order, accompanied by Fr Orlando Rueda A., Socius for the Apostolic Life and Fr Juan Ubaldo López S, General Promoter of the Laity.


In a prayerful atmosphere, with a desire to recommit themselves 23 sisters present at the celebration, from 10 different nationalities, renewed their vows. During the Eucharistic celebration, we had the opportunity to pray for the Order, for the Congregation, for each sister, for our mission and future projects that will be undertaken in light of the orientations of the recent General Chapter and for this year of thanksgiving we have just opened, to spread the knowledge of Marie Poussepin and her active service to the church.

We had a true experience of fraternity with the Master of the Order and the friars at the evening meal. The simplicity and familiarity of Fr. Gerard touched us deeply. We thank the Lord for this opportunity for sharing that helps us strengthen ties with the Order so that we can support each other through prayer and mutual help.
