In the Parish of the Most Holy Rosary, during the celebration of the holy mass at six o’ clock in the morning, Fr. Phem, the parish priest, used the memorial of St. Bonifacia Rodriguez. In his homily, he emphasized the silence and the humility of St. Bonifacia amidst trials, humiliation, and calumnies; that she spent hours of prayer, entrusting everything to God. He likewise said that in her humble and simple dwelling, she experienced God in her work as a cord maker and mentioned that any type of work is dignifying when we harmonize it with prayer.
In the afternoon at five o’ clock, the community had another celebration. Luong Thi Thu was initiated to the Pre-noviceship stage of formation through a simple Ritual of Passage. Thu stayed in our community in Vietnam for almost two years for her aspirancy. She arrived in the Philippines on May 4, 2019. Raquel, the formator, read the vision and mission proper of this stage.
