Greetings for the Solemnity of Saint Joseph

“…Every religious chosen by and with singular love to be the Spouse of the Incarnate Word, in imitation of St. Joseph, must dedicate herself completely to His care, that is, to seek to please Him by doing His most holy Will and being the spiritual mother of His children”.
(St. Joseph and the Servidoras, Prolog)

Dear Sisters:

Happy Feast of Saint Joseph!

As we celebrate this new anniversary of the Foundation of our Institute, I greet each one of you with particular affection, asking God for the grace that we may all be true spouses of the Incarnate Word, dedicating ourselves with haste to the souls He has entrusted to us.

Let us be ever faithful, following the example of our great Protector, and seek to please our Spouse in everything with a pure heart.

May this Solemnity be for all Servidoras a true reason to rejoice, remembering with gratitude all that has been received through the intercession of our dear St. Joseph, and entrusting to his intercession each one of our sisters who today profess first as well as perpetual vows.  In a special way, we entrust to him our sister María del Corpus Domini who is in the last days of her pilgrimage to Heaven.

I send you all a big hug and I keep you particularly in my prayers. United in the Holy Mass.

M. María Corredentora
Superior General
