Dear Sisters, dear Sons of the Church and all Friends, this year we celebrate our Family Feast at the feet of the Virgin Mary in the Sanctuary of Monte Berico in Vicenza. We will also commemorate the 130th anniversary of the birth and Baptism of our dear and Venerable Foundress in Castelfranco Veneto, which saw her growing up within its streets and castle walls from 1893. Surely these are two joyful events that the Lord also gives us to express our filial gratitude to Our Lady for her unconditional YES to the Father's plan for her. To her generous YES we unite in one voice to praise God with all our Family scattered throughout the world and with all those who share the gift of the Charism received. May our small daily 'Yes' to the divine will, contribute to the sowing of the seeds of peace that the whole world needs.
With fraternal affection
Sor. Theresa Purayidathil
