I would like to share with you all a short reflection on my Golden Jubilee celebration.
I can hardly believe that God is bringing me into the “land flowing with milk and honey” with all the fifty years of my religious profession in the journey of faith with my Columban Sisters, parents, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends. The overflowing graces and blessings without measure, poured into my heart and soul, cannot be fully expressed but profoundly felt.
Only when I obey God’s Word and calling will I graze on greener pastures and discover the fullest meaning of my religious life: the people and the messages that have led me to where I am and who I have become. The attitude of gratitude to God cannot be forgotten in my life. Remember the star that led the Magi to the manger of Jesus? Yes, the personal stars in my life indeed. How grateful I am for their presence and the influence with which they touched my life.
In return, the blessings received should be shared with others to make them more life-giving themselves. In the eyes of faith, I am aware without a doubt because of my fidelity to God’s will. May He guide me in my life’s journey to His eternal Kingdom in heaven.
