Today, the day we celebrate the memory of Mother Dones’ birth in Heaven, we received a gift: the renewed Constitutions.
It was April 21, Easter Eve, when Msgr. Balconi, visibly moved, was handing over the precious gift that made to explode an irrepressible joy. Also then, like today, that moment marked a point of arrival and of restart, after much preparation.
We start again today with a sense of immense gratitude to God for this gift that comes first from him; gratitude to the team of sisters who worked on it, putting determination and commitment into it.
We also thank each other, because the text is the result of everyone’s contribution. It is a gift of communion because it is a mutual gift.
(from the letter of 8 May 2020, sr. Antonella Tovaglieri)
