Love Without Borders
The Sisters of Wisdom Year 2018- 2019
“STAY ROOTED AND ESTABLISHED IN THE LOVE OF CHRIST”
We are the Sisters of Wisdom Year 2018-2019, from 5 nationalities: 1 Haitian, 3 Indian, 1 Philippine, 1 Indonesian and 2 Malagasy Sisters.
This year was a time of renewal and a time to study more deeply the spirituality in all its Montfortian dimensions.
We experienced interculturality as soon as we arrived at Angers-Mission Langue. Those weeks helped us to communicate better in French, to choose openness, simplicity, acceptance of differences, adaptation and understanding between us.
When we arrived at Saint Laurent-sur-Sèvre, we were touched by the eagerness of our Sisters to welcome us. This, we experienced mostly at the opening mass and the sharing thereafter. Together, we built our community project to help us better live our intercultural life. The importance placed on knowing the story of each one allowed us to consolidate our living together. We are convinced that our life is centered on prayer, sharing, and mutual assistance. We have come to that certainty in the joy, trust, peace and love that prevailed among us.
Then, through the many sessions, individual accompaniment, the life of our Founders, the realities of the Congregation, visits to significant Montfortian places, the Lourdes Pilgrimage, we discovered many unsuspected secrets that helped us expand our knowledge and consolidate our spirituality.
Each Saturday afternoon, we visited the Sisters at the EPHAD (Home for Seniors) with love and enthusiasm: a wonderful sharing of experiences encouraging us to proceed forward. All of this was quite challenging.
Moreover, we actively participated in the parish and at the chapel of the Founders: adoration, animation of prayer, singing and our presence bringing life and joy to others.
Thanks to this formation, we became more aware of our life as Daughters of Wisdom. It motivated us to proceed forward, and gave us a new vision of the Congregation.
“May my lips sing your praise”
This refrain expresses our gratitude to each of you, dear Sisters.
Thank you to the Leadership Team
