25 years of fidelity to the fidelity of the Spouse

After 25 years, in an attitude of praise and gratitude, Sr. Benedet has witnessed the same light which represents her following and the adhesion of faith to Jesus; light which has brightened in prayer, in fraternal life and in the apostolic service. In the chapel of our General House in Rome, we joined her in thanking and praising God for her fidelity to the fidelity of the Lord who loved her as unique from all eternity.

Let us pray that the Lord may continue to make her “Yes” fruitful and grant her the grace that her heart desires.

A heartfelt thanks to the celebrant, Rev. Fr. Davide Sciocco, vicar general of PIME, numerous concelebrant priests, our sisters, religious from different congregations, friends and to all those present at this joyous jubilee liturgy.


50 years from the first Yes!

With a heart full of joy and gratitude to God, the entire province of San Geatano joined Sr. Manuela Panni to thank the Lord for His great love for her and for the gift of vocation.
The celebration began on Friday, 6th September, with a vigil prayer, during which Sr. Manuela lit 50 candles and narrated us about her journey of mission during thelong 50 years of her consecrated life.
On Saturday, 7th September, the feast day, we had a beautiful Jubilee Eucharistic celebration with full of significant elements. It was a moment of witness for many people who celebrated this feast with us, in a spirit of fraternity and simplicity.
Let us continue to sing unceasingly the mercy of the Lord, who works wonders in the life of those who give all of themselves for love of Him and of His people.
THANK YOU dear Sr. Manuela, for your testimony, which encourages us to walk in joy and in fidelity to the vocation of the daughters of Father Luigi, animated also by the words of Pope Francis who reminds us that "the Consecrated Life is a precious Gift for the whole Church and for the world, which should not be held only for ourselves, but shared ”. 

If you knew the gift of God

«If you knew the gift of God and who is the one who says to you:
"Give me a drink!" you yourself would have asked him and he would have given you living water». Jn. 4:10

FIRST PROFESSION OF SR. SHERON MIRANDA - Sorocaba, Brazil-15, September 2019

"I thank the Lord with all my heart for the grace of finding me on His journey, to make me experience His eternal love and predilection for sinners and to ensure that my littleness should be a sign and witness of saving many brothers and sisters that He Himself places on my path.
I thank the religious Family for the trust and closeness in prayer.
Thanks to the Province of Nostra Signora Aparecida for welcoming me, and the sisters of the formation community, and those of the Provincial House, the Mothers of Santa Terezinha Community, for their testimony, for all the opportunities they offered for my growth and formation. They were four beautiful, intense and very fruitful years, which helped me to discern the will of God in my life, and they encouraged me to pronounce my Yes to Him. The day of my first profession was a beautiful day: I felt as if each one of my sisters at that moment offered me on the altar to the Father along with His Son, to walk together on the road of Holy Love.
I thank you all for every gesture of affection and unity that you have manifested to me in different ways. Our Beloved Spouse is faithful, but I ask you to continue to pray for my fidelity and perseverance in self-giving, love and service in the mission that He asks me, now, in the Community of Santa Fe, in Argentina".  

Sister Sheron 

Together with Sister Sheron, we, the sisters of the Province of St. Luigi, joyfully celebrated her first YES in Sorocaba. We are grateful because her presence is a gift of Providence to our Religious Family and we thank the sisters of the Province of Nostra Signora Aparecida, especially those who have received her and offered formation and guidance. it is a great joy for the sisters of Uruguay: after 25 years, God in His mercy, has sent a new vocation in the person of Sister Sheron with her YES to the Lord.

We continue to pray and work for vocations.

With profound joy - St. Luigi Province.


A happy announcement...

On 5 October, while the Church and our religious Family celebrate the sanctity of our beloved father Luigi, we, the sisters of the province of San Gaetano, had the joy of celebrating the first profession of four sisters: Sr. Epiphanie Baba, Sr. Marie - Reine Kakaoura, Sr. Epiphanie- Reine Kpade and Sr. Benjamine Tchadi. Their "Yes", with full of enthusiasm, filled us with joy and hope in seeing how the sanctity of Father Luigi continues to attract young women in following the chaste, poor and obedient Christ.
Since the tradition in Africa is that every important event is preceded by a vigil, so too, on the eve of the consecration, the sisters of the three Togolese communities, gathered around the four novices. Those moments spent in prayers, singing and sharing the journey made, were intense moments of gratitude and new impetus to follow Jesus in the Family of Father Luigi. The celebration of the Holy Eucharist, in the presence of 10 priests and with the participation of our sisters' family members, friends and acquaintances, was the highlight of the celebration. In the homily, the priest, inspired by the words of Pope Francis for the extraordinary missionary month "baptized and sent", recalled the apostolic legacy of Father Luigi and the sisters who preceded us and invited the newly professed and all those who were present there, to follow their example and not to give in to the modern temptation of the so-called "chronic fatigue", but let ourselves be infected by the sanctity and apostolic zeal of Father Luigi.
Then, in simplicity and joy, the celebration continued with the sharing of lunch and again with songs and dances! We sincerely thank the sisters of the various parts of the world for the prayers and manifestations of affection received in these days and we pray that the Lord will give each one, the graces necessary to live one’s own vocation in fidelity and charity.

Yes forever

Sister Angelina, Sister Rosaria, Sister Stella:
these are the three sisters who, on 19th March, consecrated themselves to the Lord forever, by pronouncing the perpetual vows according to the rule of life of our religious Family.

The Eucharistic Celebration, celebrated in the cathedral of Kyangtong (Myanmar), was presided over by His Eminence, Charles Bo, Cardinal Archbishop of Yangon, and attended by the sisters of the neighbouring communities, numerous priests and a good number of faithful as it was still allowed the community celebrations those days.

In the silence of the soul, in the offering of the heart and in the joy of singing, the three sisters lived an important moment of their consecrated life which is, even if not the goal but a fundamental stage in the journey of following Jesus, chosen as the ONLY NECESSARY in life to love and to serve with an unlimited trust and generous dedication.

We wish Sr. Angelina, Sr. Rosaria and Sr. Stella a joyful fidelity all throughout your lives!
