Lent - Province of Madagascar

God has called us to be "co-creators" ... This year, we cultivated our land in order to plant rice!

A message from the Province of Madagascar

On March 9, the Sisters of Madagascar organized a gathering to strengthen their sense of community. During this meeting, a Trinitarian Priest gave us a lecture on the Lenten message of Pope Francis on the theme “For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God” (Rm 8: 19)

The Priest especially emphasized the indispensable sense of fraternal collaboration in striving for union in diversity. God has called us to be "co-creators". In response to this call, this year we cultivated our land for the planting of rice. During the harvest, the sisters, novices, pre-postulants and workers collaborated to collect the 1500 kg of rice.

To conclude, the Priest spoke to us about the problems in the prisons of Madagascar and he invited us to participate in helping the prisoners, by our prayers and our social work.

On April 28, we will begin a ministry of caring for the young prisoners by giving them food, civic education and Catechesis. "... because I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you dressed me , sick and you visited me, prisoner and you came to see me. (Mt 25, 35-37)
