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.
