Celebrating Final Vows

The day began with the prayer conducted by Sr. Anandi, the tertian in-charge and Sr. Salley. It was very meaningful prayer during which all the tertian sisters expressed their gratitude to the Lord who has called them to serve Him in the Vedruna Family and also all those who have contributed through their prayer to reach this stage of life. We all felt God’s unconditional love for all of us as He says “Remain in my Love”.

The Eucharist was presided over by His Lordship Bp. Rethnaswami, the bishop of Ahmedabad diocese, Gujarat. In his homily he stressed on the three main points they are personal encounter with the Risen Lord, to have trust in Him that leads to charity without measure. As the Litany was being sung we felt the support and strength of all the saints who accompany us in our journey in this religious life. We consecrated ourselves totally to the Lord by pronouncing our vows. While receiving the ring- the symbol of God’s love- we committed ourselves forever to Jesus to be His own. It is an invitation to live life of commitment and sacrifice, to be witness of Christ’s life and light. Each part of the liturgy moved our hearts as if God’s abundant graces were flowing upon us. It was an experience of God’s tangible love.    

The presence of our parents, family, friends and sisters added joy into our celebration. We received their special blessings. We had a short felicitation program followed by sumptuous meal. It was indeed a joyful and memorable day for all of us as we became the members of Vedruna Family. We are grateful to our Mother General Sr. Ma Ines Garcia and team, Sr. Rani our provincial and team for their constant prayerful support in our spiritual journey. We thank Sr. Anandi for her accompaniment and guidance. We are grateful to sisters of Ahmedabad and Shradhaseri communities for co-operation and prayer. At the end we thank all the sisters of our congregation especially the Indian Province for their prayerful support.
