Archbishop of Bombay

My Dear Sr. Regina

I am happy to note that the Sisters of St. Bridget celebrate 75 year of their presence in India on November 17, 2012.

St. Briidget had a care for the earth, for justice and equality, for peace reconciliation. She is a model for a contemplative life. St. Bridget is one whose life has relevance and gives inspiration even today, especially as we try to face the issues that confront our world.

I congratulate all these sisters and cooperators engaged in this apostolate and wish them God’s strength and courage for the future.

As I play tribute to you and your Congregation, I’d like to conclude with the words from your very own Congregation Forum Booklet 2007, p.6

“As women of the Gospel, we are called to continue nourishing and developing a spirituality that is true to our heritage, faithful to the revelation of the Divine in Scripture, in the unfolding of creation, in human experience and grounded in the issue of today.”

I invoke God’s blessings on all of you.
