We are filled with the experience of the Easter Celebrations. We “know” that the Risen Lord is with us on the way. This gives us joy and hope.
We greet you from Rome where we are vibrating with multitudes of people who came from all over the world, also to our houses…to celebrate the beatification of Pope John Paul II tomorrow.
We will be united with you as we witness this great celebration
With joyful greetings
Sr. Maria and the Sisters of the Generalate and Procura
▪ We are living the joyful Easter Season in an atmosphere of expectation as we prepare for many guests in our houses for the coming Beatification of Pope John Paul II on May 01. We are grateful that both in the Procura and in the Generalate, we can host many guests for this great event, while we know that thousands and thousands are passing this night in the streets, waiting for the great day.
▪ Sisters have been coming and going this month: Sr. Prescilla Rego, who has been working in the Procura Community for several years went to India to prepare her documents for her new mission as a nurse in Cape Town, South Africa. Meanwhile Sr. Imelda Soreng from Orissa, India came to replace Sr. Prescilla in the Procura. After a long period of arduous work, Sr. Brunhilde travelled to Germany for a needed holiday; we eagerly look forward to her return. We joyfully welcomed Sr. Clementia to the Procure where she assists at the front desk. Her talents in languages and her open friendliness are a great help for the influx of many guests. We are enriched to have the presence of Sr. Patrice Wales in the Generalate at this time, where she is engaged in the General Secretariat.
▪ Fr. Derry Murphy, President of the UAC, was our dinner guest on Easter Monday; he will soon leave Rome to take up his new office as Provincial Superior in Ireland. We are very grateful for all that he has given to us especially through his keen insights into our charism and the life and spirituality of our common founder, St. Vincent Pallotti. We wish him God's Blessing in his new service, although he will be greatly missed.
