June 14, 2018:It was a great day, as the Silver Jubilee bells of Sacred Heart Pre-Novitiate Behala rang, we the nineteen candidates hailing from different parts of India, entered the portals of the Sacred Heart Pre-Novitiate Behala. With our hearts full of gratitude, we entered the Chapel with lighted Diyas in our hands and placed it before the Lord as a sign of our total surrender to the Lord. It was a grace filled moment for us as we took another step closer in preparation for our total commitment to the Lord.
Receiving a Cross and a chain individually from Sr Jyoti the Provincial Superior of Northern Province was the most touching and meaningful experience. In her message she reminded us to listen to God speaking to us in the stillness of our hearts and minds. She desired that we fall in love with Jesus, stay with Jesus and die with Jesus.
Sr joy shared the reflection on the Call of Samuel and she encouraged us to listen to the Word of God, to the voice of Jesus and to the other voices in faith. Secondly, she told us to build our spiritual life in faith like the house that built on two strong foundations of stone that cannot be shaken. Sr. Bridget too reminded us to fall in love with Jesus and make this love grow stronger day by day.
We were felicitated along with Sr Clare the outgoing Pre-Novices directress, Sr Charilin the incoming directress and Sr Vijaya the assistant directress. In the evening we all gathered for the Thanksgiving Mass at Meghmala Roy Education Centre School officiated by Rt. Rev Thomas D’Souza the Archbishop of Kolkata followed by cultural programme and meal.
We are grateful to our Congregation for embracing us with love and affection. We owe our gratitude to our Superior General Sr Rose Celine, her Councillors for their help and prayers. We thank Sr Jyoti the Provincial Superior of Northern Province, Sr Joy the Provincial Superior of North East Province Sr Shaila the Provincial Superior of Eastern for their constant care and guidance. We felt the presence and support of Sr Violet, Sr Diki, Sr Bridget the Provincial councillors and coordinators of Formation for all three provinces. We were encouraged by the presence of many sisters from far and near who joined us on this occasion. We gratefully remembered and prayed for our past Formators. With the help of Sr Charilin and Sr Vijaya we are happy to go ahead nourished by the heart of Jesus which is the fountain of love and mercy.
