Let us build the City of God….
Awake from your slumber! Arise from your sleep!
A new day is dawning for all those who weep.
The people in darkness have seen a great light.
The Lord of our longing has conquered the night.
Sr. Susanna Choi, Congregational Leader of Columban Sisters International wrote: It happened over the last two days at Mass that we had shower during communion time and then a double rainbow appeared beside the stadium. (These two photos are of Friday). We all were in awe and felt God’s presence with us though it was so cold.
In the Bible God says the rainbow will be a reminder for Himself to remember His covenant: “When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy. When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth” He is ever mindful of His promise. Let us keep our side of the Promise.
Sr. Susanna with Cardinal Joao Braz de Aviz, Prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life and Sr. Margaret Maung (RNDM) from Myanmar.
We are sons of the morning; we are daughters of day.
The One who has loved us has brightened our way.
The Lord of all kindness has called us to be
a light for all people to set their hearts free.
Sisters Susanna and Margaret with Cardinal Charles Bo from Myanmar.
God is light; in God there is no darkness.
Let us walk in the light. God’s children one and all.
O comfort my people make gentle your words,
proclaim to my city the day of her birth.
O city of gladness now lift up your voice,
proclaim the good tidings that all may rejoice.
Wishing the WMOF2018 every blessing and success and
a Cead Mile Failte to Pope Francis who will be in our midst these next two days. From: Columban Sisters International.
