Fascinated by the beauty of Christ

The novice, Tereza Barlescu, made her first religious profession on Saturday, 11 January 2020, during the Holy Mass, celebrated in Iasi, Romania, in the chapel of the "Holy Family" Delegation house. It is a reason for great joy for the whole Delegation, joy intertwined with gratitude towards the Master of the harvest for this generous "Yes", which has become a gift to the religious Family and to the Church. Let us invoke for Sr. Tereza, the gift of fidelity towards the Bridegroom and pray that other young women too, fascinated by the beauty of Christ, will have the courage to listen to His voice and to follow Him.     

Here are the impressions of the 'bride':

At this moment I can only express my gratitude to God who can accomplish, through my smallness, what He wants; I express my gratitude to the religious Family who welcomed me in her womb as a daughter and accompanied my steps throughout the time of formation, guiding me with patience and love towards Jesus and towards the knowledge of the Congregation.

Words are not enough to describe this moment, but I can testify to the great joy, peace and serenity with which the Lord accompanied me in these moments full of emotion, but also of fear in front of the greatness to which He called me.
Aware of my fragility and littleness, I put all my trust in Him who always transforms the impossible into possible.
Recalling that we do not consecrate ourselves either to escape from the world, or to have a more comfortable and peaceful life, but to give ourselves to our brothers and sisters, to bring a ray of light through our presence which is not simply ours, but of God and of the Church, and all we offer is His gift.

"God, who inspired your will and started this good work in you,
carry it out until the day of Christ the Lord, and give you the grace to remain faithful and zealous towards Him."
(From the rite of profession)
