During the morning Mass in the church of San Salvatore in Onda, at the tomb of St Vincent Pallotti, we experienced the solemn moment of being sent out. Each Sister received the papal blessing and the message of the Chapter addressed to all the Sisters in the whole Congregation.
On the first day of the Chapter, we had gathered at the altar of St. Joseph in St. Peter's Basilica; today, at the end of the Chapter, we made a pilgrimage to the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. During Holy Mass we made the act of consecration of the Congregation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
We began the day with Holy Mass, during which Fr. Martin spoke about the need to constantly return to the Gospel - the source of our faith and piety. At the beginning of the morning session, we thanked the Fathers who own the Consolata Hall where we met for our Chapter sessions, and we welcomed Sr. Małgorzata Wyrodek, who has now joined the Chapter after having been elected General Councillor.
