Such were the simple words which Sr. Amabilis wrote on the holy card from her perpetual vows.
October 25, 2020, was also a day full of gratitude and joy – the day of the celebration with the generalate community of Sr. Amabilis’ 25th Jubilee. The center of this day was the solemn Mass, a special moment of thanksgiving and praise to God for the great things that the Almighty has done, during which Sister also renewed her vows. During recreation, at the end of the day, we were able to hear about the vocation of our Sr. Amabilis through a humorous quiz, but above all, through Sister’s beautiful testimony of how she encountered Jesus living and acting with power at different moments of her life.
On such a day, it is impossible not to think about the gift and the task that we have received from the Lord, about which Pope Francis says: He is our life, he is our hope, he is our future. Consecrated life consists in this prophetic vision in the Church: it is a gaze that sees God present in the world, even if many do not notice him; it is a voice that says: “God is enough, the rest passes away”; it is praise that gushes forth in spite of everything. (2.02.2019).
Our wish for Sr. Amabilis is that she may be open to the voice of the Holy Spirit and His guidance every day, so that she may fully fulfill her vocation and be a clear sign and witness of the Risen Lord in the world.
