Yes, in life, we have to journey towards discovery of new ways, new growth and new frontiers to discover the depth of God’s love. We have dreams and visions. To achieve them we must be willing to let go off the old self, and letting go takes terrible courage. Conforming to this, our 11 Aspirants crossed another mile stone of their journey as they entered the Postulancy on 7th October, 2010 at Auxilium Convent, Saiden.
This significant and memorable event was preceded by a Spiritual Retreat at St. Scholastica Monastery, Umran. Rev. Fr. Thomas Polackal SDB, the preacher had lovingly prepared them as Don Bosco would for this important step. We gratefully say ‘Thank you’ to Fr. Thomas for the Salesianity imparted to our young candidates. The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary had a double reason for celebration as these enthusiastic and enterprising young girls took another stride towards Consecrated Life. In that simple and homely function, in the presence of many of our Sisters from the nearby communities, Rev. Sr. Rosa Pyngrope our Provincial granted their request to initiate Postulancy and the reception of medals is a sign of welcome to the new phase of their formative journey. She exhorted them to be like clay in the hands of the Potter even as she reminded them that life is a constant expedition of growth from what we are to our better selves. The prayer service was followed by felicitations and family meal. All our Sisters returned to their communities loaded with our gratitude to them and all their community members.
This wonderful day was concluded with the celebration of the Holy Mass solemnized by Rev. Fr. Sylvester Synrem, SDB from RRTC, Umran. We thank Sr. Rosa Pyngrope, our Provincial, Sr. Celine Michael and the Sisters of Mawtnum for arranging this Mass in honour of our 11 new Postulants. As we rejoice with our Postulants, we congratulate them for their generosity and courage to begin a journey of discovering their inner selves and the greatness of God’s love for them. “May God who began His good work in you bring it to completion” (Phil. 1:6).
