On Saturday evening we gathered for a moment of prayer during which Sr. Dores has given us a beautiful testimony of life.
Testimony made with such simplicity and naturalness that almost no longer needed words, the mere presence of Sr. Dores spoke about her great love for Christ and for the mission.
During the homily of the holy Mass, the celebrant, immediately noticed the simplicity of Sr. Dores , adding that, if the participation in this celebration were allowed free, the Lomé stadium could not even contain all the people: both lay people, priests, nuns, and children, young and old, all people to whom the Lord has made himself close and manifested through the love and donation of Sr . Dores during these 50 years of consecration.
Great was our joy in giving thanks to the Lord for having sent Sr. Dores, almost 50 years ago here in Africa, and for having made her such a humble instrument of his Providence for all of us.
To you, Lord, our praise and our gratitude for your strong and faithful love that accompanied Sr. Dores up to this point; we entrust her to you again, so that you may continue to be the light for her steps and the joy of her heart.
