New Postulants in India

As soon as someone enters the society, the message of the angel to the shepherds could be repeated: “Look, I bring you news of great joy to be shared by the whole people. Today in the town of David the savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord” /Luke 2: 10-11/.

With this same sentiment we the sisters from India were very happy to welcome our 11 postulants to our Congregation. They are from five different states. Two are from Karnataka, two from Andhra Pradesh, two from Tamilnadu, three from Jhrkdan, and two from Orissa. We organized a day of recollection to prepare our candidates to have the right motivation, discernment and perseverance in their vocation.

On the 30th June in the morning we began our day with a meaningful prayer service and special ceremony during which the 11 candidates entered into the Postulancy. After that we had a solemn Eucharistic celebration offered for their intentions. The main celebrant emphasized the meaning of vocation and the aim to reach their goal.  Sr. Angela Devi is the postulant directress and Sr. Sahaya Ambrose is assisting in the formation. After one year of spiritual course in Rome, Sr. Sahaya will be a great help in Pallottine formation.  We thank God for His gracious kindness towards us for giving us fruitful vocations.

Sr. Angela Devi, SAC

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"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)
