First Visit of the Guanellian Sisters to Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh City – Guanellian Sisters, Sr. Victoria and Sr. Malini, accompanied Fr. Rathinam on his canonical visit. They stayed in our community in order to visit some missionary sisters and get some idea of how they can start their own community in Vietnam. On the final day of their visit, we went on pilgrimage to Mount Vung Tàu, about 100kms from Ho Chi Minh City. A statue called Christ the King of Vũng Tàu stands 32 meters (105 ft) high on the top of 170 meters (558 ft) Nho Mount in Vũng Tàu with Jesus extending his 18.3 meter (60 ft) long arms. The nearby Mount also has a big statue of Mother Mary. We prayed to Christ the King and Mother Mary for the success of the 20th General Chapter.

Canonical Visitation to the Indian Delegation:

Canonical Visitation to the Indian Delegation: Mary Assumed Most Holy
By Mother Serena Ciserani, DSMP

The Guanellian Communities in India are preparing for the Canonical Visitation of Mother Serena Ceserani, DSMP, to each of the Houses run by the Daughters of St. Mary of Providence in the Mary Assumed Most Holy Delegation. This is a time of great joy for each and every Sister as they await a visit from their spiritual mother on earth. In this Jubilee Year of Mercy it is especially meaningful for them to experience the merciful love of God conferred upon them by the woman chosen to guide them in the Guanellian charism. A Canonical Visitation by historical practice offers the superior a chance to see every aspect of the work and daily life of those residing in a particular house. Mother Serena will take the time to meet with the sisters, assess the work being done and provide an evaluation and suggestions for any improvements deemed necessary.
Let us pray for our Guanellian Sisters as they await their respective visits with the anticipation of Pentecost. They will be renewed and invigorated by the presence of their spiritual mother and the blessings of the Holy Spirit.
