On Saturday, August 1, 2020, in Timbiras/ Brazil, our Sisters celebrated 40 years of presence and missionary commitment in the northeast of their large country.  In the spacious Parish church about 100 persons could assemble - according to the regulations in the corona epidemic that is currently unleashed there. Together they thanked God for the precious history of 40 years of giving witness of faith and love. The bishop of Coroatá, Dom Sebastiao Bandeira Coelho, who presided at the Eucharistic celebration, the parish priest José Wasensteiner SAC and some more Pallottine priests and other clergy were present to celebrate this event of joy together. In his homily Bishop Sebastiao said: "The Gospel of the multiplication of the bread, especially at this time when we are all suffering the consequences of the Corona pandemic, shows us something about the meaning of religious life, whereto it serves: “God needs people, apostles who are ready to give a response of love to the multiple sufferings of mankind – He needs people who are more preoccupied with the needs of others than with their own”.

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
