Become Saints!

A high standard, a joyful celebration. On Saturday, 18.03.2023, we were able to witness Sr Subashini and Sr Cecilia consecrating their lives to Christ in their First Profession.

Two years of novitiate lie behind them and they were able to prepare well for this step.

In Kotagiri, India, almost all our sisters living in India gathered and celebrated a joyful feast with them. Bishop Dr. A. Amalraj, Ootacamund, referred in his homily to the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well. He invited not only the two young profess sisters to be inspired by her in three points: Knowing Jesus more closely, allowing our lives to be transformed by Him and thus drawing closer to being Saints. And thirdly, like the Samaritan woman, to proclaim Jesus as Messiah. Sr. Subashini and Sr. Cecilia then promised into the hands of the Superior general Sr. Regina Pröls to live their lives as St. Francis Sisters of Vierzehnheiligen following the evangelical counsels and our Rule of Life.

With relatives from home two days' journey away, the celebration could then continue with food and encounters.
