As the leaves of Mother Generals letter,
Spells the commitment for the better
It holds a fruitful like so new;
To frame a gratitude of world’s view.
Generated by the Word that quenches thirst,
To be chiselled by the Spirit is a must.
Reciprocal accompaniment is a sacred fusion;
That fulfills the community’s educative mission.
Along journey to open spaces,
To embrace the different races
Walk beside the river up to the brim;
That nourish the tree planted at the stream.
Sentiments of joy expressed without fear,
Expression of LOVE for you is so dear.
Without a further delay for the other,
We say “Thank you” dear Mother.

Thank you Mother
We sisters of Auxilium Barasat pledge to do our optimum
To study and live the Theme of the world gratitude day
We delved deep into the selected cute inaugural psalm
Which spoke of the evergreen tree planted by the stream
We fathomed that you are that incessant fruit bearing tree
That provided to all your daughters invigorating nutrition
That facilitated the communities to be ever life generating
That mobilized each one to renewal open to transforming
Your circulars were relevant, and a breath-taking treasure mine
Your cheery and homely presence eradiated all anxiety and gloom
Your charm was like magnet that drew young without any reserve
We felt privileged and lucky to have you as our mother so suave.
As we journey towards world gratitude day we truly promise
We’ll let ourselves be chiselled encountering the Holy Spirit
To live the generative power of the Charism in this historic hour
To be women who radiate joy and hope to the new generations
As we sojourn towards 150th anniversary of our dear institute
We’ll go back with the hearts memory to the institute’s origins
To be impassioned lovers of Jesus and eloquent witness of love
To encounter God with all in the ordinary situations of daily life
As we voyage in this most difficult historic time of Corona Virus
We vow to respond to the hour with creativity &unimagined guts
Allowing the Spirit to be the transforming protagonists of our lives
To be communities that generate life in the heart of contemporaneity.
As we experience the lock down of all nations with pandemic covid 19
We muse we are called to be women of the spirit and deeply human
To reinforce the need for contemplation of the word and constant prayer
To look positively at the good in every situation and in every creature
As we hear you speaking to us heart to heart on the theme of GC XXIV
We make our covenant that we won’t’ be individualistic but synodal
To rekindle our dedication for and with the young people of our time
Living with passion and missionary zeal our heritage and our charism

Thank you, O God
For giving us our Mother General
So entrusted with the Holy Spirit

A mother whose life is a tree that bears fruit
Living by which one could become another

And this beauty of challenges and this beauty of variety

And to do justice to it by one’s very life
Thank you Mother, Thank you Mother

Thank You! Mother
On the sunny bright day a little babe was born
The tiny little eyes and nose, hands and feet looked like
Fairer than the fairy of old
Gazing at her mother in dazzling eyes
Clapping her hands with joy
To say thank you mum dear
The little baby grown to be
The future Madre Yvonne Reungoat
She grew tall and robust
Carrying smiling face always
One morning on the spring
Heard the voice of Jesus,
“Go into the world to announce the Gospel”
Called by the missionary mandate of Jesus;
Thus she said “Yes” to his call
Like Mary our Mother
Followed the Master everywhere
High as the sky, deep as the sea
Is how much you are loved by the FMA world
Wide as the desert and tall as the eucalyptus
is how much you are loved by all of us mother dear
You unite us all with the lovely letters
Like hen gathers her chicks
Your love goes beyond the horizon
To save the souls of many
We thank and love you Mother dear
You are the best Mother in the world.
Happy Gratitude day!
Mother ‘thank you’
There are no words big enough for a thank you.
With smile on our lips and love in our hearts, we say thank you
Hearts filled with gratitude we remember your sacrifices
Thank you for being so special full of love
You are a marvellous leader, we acknowledge.
You are a special person with a heart sincere.
We are inspired with every word in your circulars
Your love and encouragement, your guidance and commitment we remember often
Thank you God we say for you from our hearts
