The Province “Immaculate Heart of Mary” -Shillong, India unites with the FMA World to express our gratitude to our Beloved Mother General on this World Gratitude Day 2020. To develop a constant sense of gratitude and a sound consciousness of God’s favours , we extend our synergies of gratitude to our dear Mother for her maternal contribution in generating life especially during these years of her tenure with wisdom, foresightedness and creative dedication; faithful to the dream of Don Bosco and Mother Mazzarello in our Institute.
We commit ourselves to live the call of becoming communities that generate life in the Spirit that moves beyond our own confines, that breathes the freshness of the first community of Mornese and that continues to bear abundant fruits in the life of our Institute, of our Province, our apostolate, of our Sisters, our young people, our educating communities and everyone who shares in our educative mission. We pledge to forge ahead with faith and courage to become women of the Spirit, spiritual women who are deeply human to create ‘something new’ in our personal lives, in our communities and mission. The new Spirit that finds a home in love, forgiveness, mutual acceptance, joy, generosity, respect, openness, simplicity, trust, genuine relationship and above all fascinated by the merciful love of God.
We express our gratitude to our dear Mother by committing ourselves of becoming religious and human communities that generate life so that the charism of our Institute may grow and expand like a tree that bears desirous and plentiful fruits. We recommit our fidelity and our desire to encounter the Love of God with the young people and the whole educating community and with them we may glorify God in our constant strive to be the authentic ‘living monuments of gratitude to Mary Help Christians’
