, warmly welcomed all present in the Chapel, recalling with gratitude the lives of the jubilarians, lived for God in service of the Church.“On this springtime day, we see the beauty of God revealed in all of creation and the beauty of God revealed in a special way in the faithful lives of our Sister Jubilarians. Our Jubilarians have encountered Jesus and have lived a life consecrated to Him through chastity, poverty and obedience. In turn, they have encountered others and generously shared the love God has poured into their hearts, as they have lived our mission of uniting all people with God and one another.
As residents here at Saint Joseph Villa, they live our mission of union as they continue to encounter God very specially through their lives of prayer and compassionate presence to so many. Our Congregation, Church and world have been enriched so beautifully by your lives, Sister Jubilarians. Congratulations. We love you!"
