For me, the religious vocation is a mystery of love between a God who calls and us that we respond to that call for love and freely. I did my final commitment on 29 April at the feast of Santa Catalina de Siena, in the Alto de la Paz, Bolivia; accompanied me my family, sisters of the different communities of our province, sisters of the CBR, the Center maternal child St. Mary of the angels staff and members of the parish community. I would like to share with you sisters my reflection of one of the biblical quotations that has accompanied me in my initial training process and chose the day of the ceremony.
The biblical quotation from the Samaritan woman and supporting me with “Ungidas” book, the biblical characters, especially the Samaritan woman touched my personal story. Phrases: “Creature capable of love, beloved”, invites me to continue reflecting, challenging to love. Woman who has been healed for love, leaving what was before for something bigger which is the proclamation of the good news. I grew up as a person in this process of faith; my relationship with God is has been purifying, transforming, maturing, feeling each day a God nearby, merciful; I have been appreciating and loving congregation, our mission and his works.
Welcoming the charism with joy, availability, living simply, with conviction. My commitment is to “live like Jesus”, because I chose to live a particular life style and I want to be consistent.
God loves me, invite me each day to love, this is the certainty that encouraged me to be missionary Domenica del Rosario and commit myself definitely.
