Major Archbishop Of Ernakulam-Angamaly

Dear Sr.M. Regina Kalathil O.Ss.S,

I am delighted to learn that the Bridgettines sisters are celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of their presence in India and that a souvenir will be released to mark this historic events.

On this great occasion, your sisters can look back with gratitude and joy at the wonderful ways in which the Lord has guided your congregation- the great number of students they have taught, the weary people being helped and counseled in schools, parishes, hospitals, villages and the various ways through which they were instrumental in spreading the kingdom of God. At the same time, thus remembering the challenges of the past with joy, you should take a different turn to face the challenges of today with more enthusiasm and courage to be the living witnesses of Christ. May you continue being faithful to the Charism of your Congregation and to the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to be true ambassadors of Jesus and His Merciful love in the Missions!

I pray God to bless all of you and make your Congregation grow and flourish in India.

With best wishes for the success of the souvenir,

George Cardinal Alencherry
Major Archbishop of the Syro-Malabar Church.
