Young Disciples Renewed their 'Yes'

On Feb 9, 2021, Tuesday of the 5th Week in Ordinary Time, Sr. M. Cheryl P. Celestre and Sr. M. Jessiebel B. Maata, had their 7th renewal of vows during the Eucharistic Celebration held at Divine Master Convent.

The Mass with the Rite of Renewal of Vows was presided by Rev. Fr. Guido Everaert, CICM at 7:00 in the morning. In his homily, it was highlighted that the evangelical vows are means of expressing our love and commitment to the Lord. Thus, they are not to enslave us but lead us to authentic freedom.

The celebration was attended by the Sisters of the Divine Master Convent- Antipolo with the presence of the Provincial Superior Sr. M. Anthony Basa.

In Rome, Sr. M. Lixia Zhang also renewed her Vows in the presence of Sr. M. Micaela Monetti, Superior General on February 10, 2021 at the PDDM General House, Via Gabriele Rossetti in Rome. Her community from Casa Betania in Portuense also joined her in celebrating the gift of her another "Yes" to God.
