Small Step is a Giant Leap for Guanellian Family

Manila – Four years after St. Louis Guanella’s canonization on October 23, 2011, a group of Guanellian Lay Cooperators made their promise to commit themselves and become official members of the Guanellian family; keeping the spirituality of St. Louis Guanella alive. The event was held in simple ceremonies during the celebration of the Holy Eucharist on October 4th at the Guanella Center officiated by Rev. Fr. Soosai Rathinam, SdC, Provincial Superior, and concelebrated by the DPP Provincial Councilors.
With promises made, may they be inspired by St. Louis Guanella’s quote in the Guanellian Lay Movement (GLM) Document, Making Charity the Heart of the World p. 45 Notes 47 “Prayer and doing good at home or in church is not enough. You need to go out and find the lost sheep… We can never stop as long as there are poor to be assisted, distresses to be relieved.”
Recalling Fr. Luigi de Giambattista’s encouraging thoughts about Gratitude, Passion and Hope, will strengthen them on their journey towards their new lives with the Guanellian community.
