The Sunday following the Feast of the Divine Redeemer, October 29, 2017, the Associates of the Sisters of the Divine Redeemer gathered at the Sister's Motherhouse for their special meeting.
The program started by presentation with the title: JESUS: THE HUMAN SIDE. We were led through Gospel passages:
Matthew 4:1-11 Temptation in the Wilderness
Matthew 15:21-28 The Canaanite Woman
Matthew 26:37-44 Agony in the Garden
Matthew 27:46 The Death of Jesus
Luke 2:41-52 Jesus Among the Doctors of the Law.
Jesus was human as well as divine. As man, Jesus struggled, suffered all of our afflictions and showed us how to accept and use them to become a source of grace and salvation. We too have a human and a spiritual side. These reflections have helped us to accept and use the hardship of our lives. This way they become a source of grace and salvation.
One hour spent in the Chapel by adoring Jesus present in the Eucharist strenghten us on the way to the next days. The presentation of how Mother Alphonse Marie used her suffering helped us to deeper understand how to participate an the Redemption and become a source of grace and help for others. The Vespers prayer was a solemn moment when our Associates made their fist commitment or to renewed their commitment. Refreshed spiritually, all Associates, Sisters, Priest and other participants, gathered in the dining room to refresh their body.
Let everything we do to be for the greater honor and glory of God!
