I thank God for this wonderful mission that lasts and is committed to its original charisma – nursing the lepers. They are the core of the deed, in which we are honored to participate. I am also grateful to all the people, who support us in various ways, i.e. spiritually (with their prayers) and materially. We want to express that in the motto that our Provincial Sister has asked us about: “Giving a hand to each other we work hard and serve our suffering Friends more effectively”. Everybody, no matter where he comes from, makes his contribution and shows his kindness in various ways. We are grateful to everybody for everything. You are our tremendous support. “For you make me glad by your deeds, LORD; I sing for joy at what your hands have done”.
To sum up, in Madagascar we say:” Mora entina ny entana zaraina”, which means: “The load is easier to carry if it is carried together”. And Our Lord says:” The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” (Mt 25, 40).
Our testimony is the best thing we can offer to You as an expression of our gratitude and deep appreciation. Please, take it, our dear Friends, as a bouquet of flowers from our garden to decorate Your dwellings during the Christmas and New Year celebrations. We give it together with our prayers, offered with the intercession of the Most Holy Virgin Mother of God. May the Blessed Virgin Mary intercede for us and the whole world.
