Celebrating Lúcia´s Birthday, 2017

On 16 March, we celebrated the anniversary of Lúcia´s birth. We had a thanksgiving mass for the life of Lúcia in the big Chapel with the apostolic and contemplative sisters, brothers of Sion and volunteers. Following Mass, we had a delicious breakfast in the community and enjoyed sharing the rest of the morning.

We thanked the Lord for Lúcia´s life, her family and her journey in the congregation.

“This is my Son, the Beloved; with him I am well pleased; Listen to him.”(Matthew.17:5)

We ask God to bless her with joy, peace and love.

In addition, we had a delicious lunch together and continued celebrating her Birthday, we had a coffee together with a delicious cassava cake with all community of Ein Karem.

“There is a season for everything, a time for every occupation under heaven: A time for giving birth, a time for dying; a time for planting, a time for uprooting what has been planted. A time for tears, a time for laughter; a time for mourning, a time for dancing. A time for throwing stones away, a time for gathering them; a time for embracing, a time to refrain from embracing. A time for loving, a time for hating; a time for war, a time for peace.” (Ecclesiastes. 3, 1-2.4-5.8.)
