An Assent of God's Love
As the Church celebrates today, the Memorial of the Dedication of the Basilica of Saint Mary Major, the Philippine-Taiwan-Hongkong Province rejoiced for the gift of vocation and the courageous "yes" of Sr. M. Cherylsalve Cualquira, Sr. M. Julieta Jose and Sr. M. Emily Pitogo. At the chapel of Alberione Center in Quezon City at 10 o'clock in the morning of August 5, 2021, during the Holy Eucharist which was presided by Rev. Fr. Jean Marie Rollin Flores, SSP (Provincial Superior) and concelebrated by two other SSP priests: Rev. Fr. Albert Leopoldo Bernal and Rev. Fr. Levi Matthew Faderanga, the three sisters stood before the sisters and the faithful to offer themselves for life through the congregation. Fr. Flores highlighted on his homily the essence of the religious life: being called by God and responding to it. Sr. M. Anthony Basa, our Provincial Superior, accepted them in the name of our Mother General, Sr. M. Micaella Monetti.
