▪ The Sisters participated in the solemn Eucharistic Celebration with the Holy Father on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, a day dedicated to Consecrated life. On this grace-filled day, the Holy Father mentioned that in the East this feast is called the “Feast of Encounter”. In the temple, he said, the encounter took place between two couples: young Mary and Joseph, and the elderly Simeon and Anna. He invited the Consecrated Brothers and Sisters to look at their journey of consecration as born of an encounter and a call. In that encounter we were not alone with Jesus but also with the People of God, the Church. He concluded by asking us to renew our encounter with Jesus daily so that we can walk together towards Him and this will give light to our eyes and strengthens our steps.
