With a Grateful Heart

With a grateful heart, I thank the Lord for the privilege of this Jubilee year and thank Him for His faithfulness and His love, which knows no ends.  I am grateful to each one of you Sisters who celebrate with me the Lord’s goodness and His mercy throughout the ages.  His call to the religious life is a mystery to me and yet I rejoice in His grace and mercy, present and ever new.

His Excellency Carlo Maria Vigano said in his homily (reiterating the words of St. Catherine of Siena), “It is Charity that kept our Lord nailed to the Cross…”  This is the Lord Jesus who has revealed Himself to me and the One in whom I choose to give totally of myself.  With Mary, our Mother, I join in one voice:  “The Almighty has done great things for me and holy is His name.”
