The Holy Mass was presided over by Rt. Rev. Peter Machado, the Archbishop of Bangalore. In his homily he congratulated the Sisters and gave the message that we do not celebrate our commitment to God but we celebrate God’s faithfulness to us. He also emphasized that we have not chosen to be religious but God has chosen us so neither we need to choose our communities. It is He who will appoint through the authorities and encouraged them to put Jesus in the center of their life.
