It was our pleasure to have the three days tridium from the 31st May to 2nd June 2022 on the feast of visitation. We felt God’s presence in our lives and we shared on the joy of Mary and Elizabeth. This helped us to open our hearts to listen to the movement of the Holy Spirit.
In our three days prayer, we had a chance of reviewing our lived experiences and we were consoled because God has been present in our lives. We felt invited to be present with open hearts to the slightest movement of the Holy Spirit. To trust and hope in the Lord who has been there for us, also to be a prophetic witness of Christ and peace makers like Mary.
We were supported by the prayers of our sisters, love, care and the concern which helped us to be attentive and concentrate in prayer. So we are grateful to our sisters who helped us to pray especially the sister who journeyed with us in these three days tridium, her availability and openness towards us.
Here comes a day of our entrance to novitiate, we felt overwhelmed with joy and love because that was the right time for us. 3rd June was a very special day and fitting for us to begin our novitiate with the feast of the Uganda Martyrs, we felt their presence and united in prayers. So we thank God for that moment and we desire to emulate their faith by the grace of God.
Being in communion with the sisters was life-giving in a way that we felt loved and welcomed in this congregation of Mary Reparatrix. The prayers were well animated and we were highly welcomed by our Regional Superior and the entire congregation. We also had a moment of presenting our symbols which expressed our feelings, desires, invitations and convictions that will animate us on our journey.
We thank the Almighty God for having chosen us to be part of this congregation and we pray that He may grant us all the graces we need to respond to his call positively. In a special way, we extend our sincere thanks to all the sisters for the prayers, words of encouragement, support and the effort put, we pray that God may bless them abundantly.
