The 2016 Tertianship has begun
with Gratienne from Burundi, Theopista from Uganda, Laetitia from Mexico and Julie from DRCongo. They are accompanied by Begoña from Spain and Revocata from Uganda.
What is the Tertianship? The congregation invites sisters who have lived ten years of religious life after their final commitment to meet for a time of renewal and re-reading. It takes place in Rome in our generalate.
Here is the biblical text chosen for the inauguration of their program:
“The crowd pressed around Jesus to hear the word of God. As he stood by the lake of Galilee He saw two boats on the shore. The fishermen were washing their nets. Getting into one of the boats which was Simon’s, he asked him to depart a little from shore. Then he sat down and from the boat, he taught the multitudes. When he had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep waters and let down your nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at your word I will let down the nets.”
We pray for you and let you launch out so as to better find you again!
