In a recent sharing, sisters were asked to share symbol of their religious life.

I would like to share a few with you:-

  • At the end a little green is left, that is part of life’s’ cycle.
  • I am in the autumn of our congregation, what falls to the ground nourishes the renewal the congregation

  • My religious ring symbolises fidelity, truthfulness and self-surrender
  • This simple silver ring connects me with my vows: to be to be truthfully loyal and love God.

 

Our crossOur cross

  • The most beautiful charism, it brings the whole church in to the heart of Jesus.
  • Expressed daily in the Holy mass for the whole world.
  • Totally pouring our life on the cross calls for tremendous generosity, not counting the cost, not being sad, put all in the drop of blood, and Jesus   makes it right with the world.

 

Our crossCandle

The candle is useful only when it burns. If it does not burn it is only a decoration. It needs to burn to give warmth and light. In doing so it burns down slowly but continues to shine, to be a light in the congregation.

Expressed in life lived with many fellow sisters, each different from many parts of the world.

  • The lord is the one who make us smooth.
  • I need to offer the Precious Blood daily for the world that it become smooth as the Lord wants, I too must submit that He may smooth me.
