March 19, which is usually the Feast of St. Joseph, the Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary was, this year, 2017, the Third Sunday of Lent. This day was special for our Community and Region. One of our Sisters, Sister M. Viannea, celebrated her Silver Jubilee of Profession.
Many years ago Sister Viannea heard the call of the Lord, Who is the Lord of sea and sky, snow and rain, wind and flame; Who has heard His people cry; Who speaks His word to them; Who gave His life for them. She heard His questions: "Who will bear my light to people? Whom shall I send?" Twenty-fifth years ago Sister Viannea answered: “Here I am Lord. Is it I, Lord? I have heard You calling in the night. I will go, Lord, if You lead me. I will hold Your people in my heart.”
Today, at 8:00 AM Holy Mass, Sister Viannea confirmed her faithful love for her Spouse, Jesus Christ, her Divine Redeemer by renewing her vows. She offered her heart, the heart of a servant, as Mary said, “I am the handmaid of the Lord”, a sanctuary of God.
All the Sisters and those who attended the Holy Mass rejoiced with her as she celebrated her Silver Jubilee.
May God’s blessings be upon her. May her Silver Jubilee hold special happiness with God’s love always near. May He fill her heart with joy and peace today and throughout the year.
