Here I am Lord, I come to do your will

29 June 2018

Grace upon grace, we were so blessed to have our Renewal of Vows on the Feast of St Peter and St Paul. It is a 2018 vow renewprivilege to say “Yes” one more time to the Lord who calls each one of us to respond to His invitation to follow Him in evangelical poverty, chastity and obedience. Also, that feast day was special for us to look at and reflect on our patron, St. Paul, who was a true witness of the Lord’s power, mercy and compassion.

Sr. Teresa Rose, Sr. Monica and I – Sr. Veronica gathered in Boronia Heights and began our retreat from 26th June to 29th June. We were grateful to have a Three - Day Retreat under the guidance of Sister Mary Joseph. She gave us three Talks, one on the Spirituality of The Sister of St Paul De Chartres; one on Community Life and a final one on Living the SPC consecrated life in its fullness and authenticity. With God’s grace and Sister’s help, we could go deeper into relationship with the Lord who is always faithful despite our unfaithfulness. The silent atmosphere of the retreat enabled us to enter into intimacy with Him. In this retreat I experienced God’s own immense love and mercy on me. He gave me one more chance to proclaim his Good News through living out my Vows, and I have given once more an opportunity to say “Yes” and do His will continuously in my life.

2018 vow renew

Renewal of Vows is not announcing the Formula by mouth, but it is saying “I do!” to God, and to do His holy will according to the charism of our Congregation. “Thank You God, for all the graces you have showered upon us, especially for the gift of calling us to become your disciples".
