Vie, 17 Sep 21 Vida del Instituto
On the 15th of September, our postulant Deepika Lakra took the step of entering to the novitiate on the feast of Our Lady of Sorrow. The celebration took place in Mysore at Athmanivas community with the presence of our Delegate superior and her counselors, sisters of the community, Novice and the postulants. The celebration was joyful and solemn in a family atmosphere. Novice was welcomed with a dance by the postulants and accompanied in a procession by the Delegate superior and the novice mistress. During the Vespers after the scripture reading the Delegate superior entrusted the candidate to the novice mistress exhorting and explaining to her about the gift of a vocation which is a grace which is freely received from God and something is so great and beautiful so we need to guard and protect it living in our religious family following the footsteps of Christ and by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit under the Charism of our Mother Maria Oliva Bonaldo. So let us thank the Lord and Our Blessed Mother for augmenting our religious family and let us pray for Deepika to be a faithful disciple, to the gift of her vocation and to guard the treasure which is freely received from the Lord and she may be able to give herself totally to God and to the people through her service. After the vespers, we had a small celebration to congratulate and wish Deepika with a small cultural programme animated by postulants and Novice to share the joy of the day.
