On July 14, the Josephine sisters closed the period of discernment and formation, for the definitive option in following Jesus the Good Samaritan, in the Congregation.
The event took place in the chapel of the founders whose presence and intercession led them to constant confidence in the mercy and fidelity of God, who continues to do wonders for each of the “Josefinas” sisters. It was a moment charged with joy and gratitude, for the variety and richness of the formative experiences lived, in communion with all the sisters, collaborators, patients of the hospitaller community and marked by the pandemic time.
The admirable testimony of the practice of hospitality, at the risk of their own lives, of the sisters of the Mother House who guard the congregational heritage at its origins, helped them discover the joy of following Jesus with fidelity and perseverance. The evangelizing capacity of the sick in gestures and glances of love, affection and closeness has made them experience the healing of the Good Samaritan. They have also valued the welcome, creativity, dedication and professionalism of the collaborators, who have taught them to serve the sick with their gestures of respect and compassion. The intercultural fraternal coexistence in the “Josefinato group”, and the “Ciempozuelos community”, led them to deepen the sense of convocation for the hospitaller mission and to grow in the sense of belonging to the Congregation.
