Prayer in the spirit of M. Gerine
Composed for the 130yrs anniversary of her death
On the 1st of March 2017, the Prioress general, Sr. Elvira, wrote these to all the Religious Family (sisters and laity):
“...Each entity is to think about ways to carry out this commemoration, not only with liturgical celebrations and prayers, which surely are appropriate and desirable, but also by a preparatory time of deep study of the spirituality of our Mother, the identity of our charism, and of our mission. It seems to us that a highly significant challenge is presented to us in no. 21 of the Constitutions:
“Contemplating Jesus, who died outside Jerusalem,
and looking towards Mother Gérine who ended her life as an exile,
we place ourselves, courageously and without fear of the risk involved,
as a presence of mercy and truth
alongside those who feel themselves far from God and consider themselves separated…” (Constitutions, n. 21)
[...] We shall consider the whole year celebratory, not just 31 December!
I hope you will all celebrate this year and these initiatives in the spirit of daughters and sons who want to discover ever more about the teaching and the heart of their Mother, in order to follow her ever better, and to live in today’s world the splendid charism given her by the Holy Trinity."
