CURIA GENERALIZIA – MISSIONARIE DEL SACRO CUORE DI GESÙ 00135 ROMA
Feast of Mother Cabrini
Dear Sisters, Cabrini Lay Missionaries and Partners in Mission,
Rome, November 13, 2017
Happy Feast Day to all of you. This Centenary year celebrating Mother Cabrini’s passage from this life to the next has been one of tremendous grace. Let’s unite in thanksgiving for all of the wonderful consolations that the Sacred Heart of Jesus has given to us throughout this year.
May we be worthy of all that God has given to us and have the courage to collaborate with His desire for us, that we truly be Bearers of the Love of God to the World today. Now is the favorable time; we must continue to move towards the future with love, humility and missionary audacity.
It is with great joy that we also announce the founding on this date of the new Santa Francisca Cabrini Province that is comprised of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. The discernment for the major superior will take place November 25-27. I ask that we all join in praying for this new province, and offer my gratitude for the work that the sisters have done to bring about this new canonical entity. I am sure that our Mother Foundress, for whom the Province is named, will bestow on this province special help at this time of building something new for the good of the Institute and for the good of mission.
In this time of unprecedented human migration and displacement we must continue to look for ways of deepening our response to those who are without home or country. This is our charism. Let us work together with courage and energy to respond to the beginning of two new missionary endeavors; A house for refugees in Rome, and new mission in Uganda on the Sudanese border. It will take all of us together to make these missionary dreams become a reality.
The General Council and myself want to thank all of you for all that you do every day. Be assured of our pray, support and love as we together move towards the future in this favorable time in our MSC Institute.
United with you in the Heart of Christ,
Sr. Barbara Staley, MSC
