On behalf of all the Sisters of St Louis, both present and absent, I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak to you for a few minutes. On an occasion like this, what can I say? My heart feels very full – full of memories, full of sadness and grief, full of pride, full of humility, -
Scripture tell us that there is a Season for Everything and how apt this truth is, -
The past 10-
Other than by our prayer we are at a loss to know how we can thank you. But, as a tiny token of our gratitude we have prepared a booklet which encapsulates some of the story/history of the SSLs in Ramsgrange. After Mass, the altar servers will be offering you, one for each household in the locality.
I know and trust that it has been very good for us, Sisters of St Louis, to gather here with you for this Pentecost Eucharist, today. Thank you to you, Bishop Dennis, Frs Brian, Don and Tom and each person who contributed to today’s beautiful Eucharistic liturgy. It will be a precious and nourishing memory for us, in the days, weeks, months and years ahead.
As we move forward from today we do so with confidence. We ask you to pray for us, the Sisters of St Louis – pray that we will continue to be faithful to what and where God is calling us – no matter how painful and difficult this might be. On our part we want to assure you that just because we are moving to another moment, beginning a new chapter, does not mean that you will be forgotten. Be assured that we will continue to pray for you and your families. Indeed, today’s feast of Pentecost provides us with rich and encouraging hints of what our prayer for you might be.
So thank you so much to you the people of Ramsgrange and beyond and may the very precious gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit be with each of you, and with your families, in abundance.
