Reflection:

     My heart is filled with joy and thanksgiving as I renew my vows this year. Looking back at my experiences, I have seen how Jesus molds me little by little. I feel that He’s preparing me to be mature, and how to live the life of an Hija de Jesus. There are times of difficulties, but God is so kind that thru these experiences, He allows me to grow and He strengthens my faith. I know that I still have a lot of things to learn, and to continue growing within myself, but the unconditional love of Jesus helps me persevere and make an option to be with Him.

     I thank the Congregation, all the sisters, my family, colleagues and friends for journeying with me. Thank you for all the support, encouragement and for your prayers. And most of all, I thank the Blessed Mother and our Loving Father for loving me unconditionally.

“Jesus calls me out of LOVE, He molds me out of LOVE

and I will respond Him with my LOVE.”
