We are very happy to welcome Sister M. Lima Arackal from our Indian Province in Germany today - on June 14, 2019 - exactly nine months after her election as General Councilor, on September 14, 2018 in the USA. She finally got her visa after a long odyssey. With a delay, Sister M. Lima arrived at noontime at the Motherhouse.
For the next years in General Leadership, we wish her God's richest blessings and the gifts of the Holy Spirit for her new ministry. May our Seraphic Father, St. Francis, St. Clare and our founder, Christopher Bernsmeyer, be always with her. May they lead and accompany her on her way.
God, You are our hope and our strength,
we can not do anything without You.
God, be with us, with Your grace,
that we think, talk and do what is pleasing in Your eyes.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord!
Opening Prayer - June 14, 2019
