Consecrate to the Lord forever

10 June 2020, the date on which we remember the canonization of our Father, St. Luigi, was a day of grace for our religious Family and in particular, for the Province of India: in fact we rejoiced for the gift of our four Indian sisters, Sister Ansuma, Sister Goreti, Sister Sangita and Sister Usha who, in love with divine beauty, uttered their "yes" forever before the Church. The Eucharistic Celebration was presided over by His Excellency Mons. Thomas D' Souza, the Archbishop of Kolkata and three other priests. Because of the pandemic, it was a very simple celebration in the chapel of the provincial house, together with the sisters of the community and of the novitiate.
It was a day of thanksgiving to the Lord for their witness of life totally given to God, to serve the brothers and sisters. Mother Cecilia Piacentini, in one of her letters, wrote: "Remember that on the day of your profession you promised to give: LOVE FOR LOVE, BLOOD FOR BLOOD, LIFE FOR LIFE". 
In fact, the "yes" that our sisters have pronounced is based on the certainty of the gift of love that their Bridegroom Jesus has already made towards them.  

Filled with the love of Christ, the sisters wish to share with us the prayer of their heart:
"Here I am, I am your servant, Lord" (Lk 1: 38). Thank you, Jesus, for your call of love with which you want me to learn from you the art of free and joyful gift in order to be an instrument of love of your Love in the midst of brothers and sisters. (Sr. Ansuma Islary) 
"I will betroth you in faithfulness and you shall know the Lord" (Hosea 2: 20). In response to the Lord's faithfulness and His love for me, I would give myself completely, as He has given and constantly gives Himself and be immolated like Him, by Him and for Him. (Sr. Goreti Dung) 
"My soul gives thanks to the Lord that I am blessed by his holy Name and I never forget his blessings, because my Saviour chose me as His servant”. (Sr. Sangita Ekka)
"The heart of each sister is like an altar to God." I want to sing and thank God for His love and His tenderness towards me. I experienced the serenity of the heart, the grace and love of Christ. (Sr. Usha Rani Singh).

We, the family of Father Luigi, rejoice in the Lord for the precious gift of these sisters. We accompany them with our prayers to become the sign of God for all humanity.
