Mother Ana and Fr. Rafael visit the communities of the Servant Sisters in Italy, February 3rd-12th, 2016.
Fr. Rafael, founder of the Home of the Mother and Mother Ana Maria, Superior General of the Servant Sisters, visited the communities of the Servant Sisters in Italy from February 3rd until February 12th. After spending a few days in the capital of Italy, the Eternal City, with the Sisters, Brothers and Lay members of the Home, Mother and Father traveled up north where we have two other communities of Sisters in the region of Lombardy: One of the houses is in Brignano (Bergamo) and the other in Lumezzane (Brescia).
Monday, February 8th, we had a dinner encounter with members and friends close to the Home in Brignano. We had a meeting with Fr. Rafael and he told us recent news about things happening in the Home and about his trip to Nicaragua to attend to both the boys’ and girls’ summer camps. He also reminded us that our vocation to the Home, before being a personal decision, it is first and foremost a vocation, a calling.
All of the members and close friends of the Home who participated in this encounter were very happy to see Mother and Father. We also had the joy of seeing a new member enter into this family, another gift from Our Mother!
Tuesday evening we had Mass , dinner and another encounter with members and close friends of the home, but this time it was in Lumezzane. It was a very joyful meeting and it helped us all to reflect and prepare ourselves to live well this Lenten season.
It is always such a grace to listen to our Founder. Thank you!
