You may ask: "Who are the Salesian Sisters?"
They are the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians. St. John Bosco, their Founder, called them Figlie di Maria Ausiliatrice (FMA) on August 5, 1872, the day the Institute was born. St. Mary Mazzarello and her 14 companions formed the first FMAs. On that day, St. John Bosco wanted the Sisters to take St. Francis of Sales, the Patron of the Institute as one of their inspirations to walk the way of holiness in their consecrated life and in their mission among the youth.
Through a gift of the Holy Spirit and the direct intervention of Mary, St John Bosco founded our Institute as a response of salvation to the profound hopes of young girls. He endowed it with a spiritual heritage that had its inspiration in the charity of Christ the Good Shepherd, and imparted to it a strong missionary impulse.(Constitutions of the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, 1)
Here, have a peek at the life of St. Mary Mazzarello. For us, Sisters, she made a difference in our lives as consecrated women. We look to her as the icon of the spirit we live in our houses and centers: the Spirit of Mornese.
We, The Salesian Sisters look up to St. Mary Mazzarello, the Model and Inspiration in our living our vocation with fidelity amidst our Sisters and the young people we journey with in their quest of holiness, love and joyful service to others.
Life is a vocation. Life needs to have a purpose, a goal, an aim, a vocation for living. The word vocation comes from vocare (to call) and it indicates a listening attitude. In life, there is one voice to heed. "Et ma vocation ?"
S’interroger personnellement : quelle est ma vocation ?
Cette question peut se poser à plusieurs moments de la vie et particulièrement autour de 20-30 ans.
Toute vie réellement chrétienne est réponse à l’appel de Dieu à vivre son amour. Tout chrétien est un ouvrier dans la vigne du Seigneur… Quelle mission le Seigneur souhaite-t-il me confier ?
Si tu savais le don de Dieu…
c’est toi qui demanderais à boire de l’eau vive.
