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.

Enumerate all the graces that the Lord has given you

On 6 September, with great joy like Mary, I said my YES, trusting and abandoning myself completely in the hands of God.

For me, consecration means a loving response to a God who loved me first... therefore, I want to live my life for my brothers and sisters.

I want to bear witness to the power of the love of the Risen Christ wherever I am, where He himself leads me.

I thank all the sisters who have prayed for my perseverance and I ask that they continue to pray for my faithfulness.

I am happy to be of God and now I belong only to Him! Happy to be a sister of  Providence and a daughter of Father Luigi , remembering always his teaching: 
May everything in us be an act of love, from morning till evening!
