“And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name.”(1 Chronicles 29:13)
At the outset, I would like to thank God and greatly acknowledge His prodigious blessings. Indeed, my heart overflows with love and gratitude to Him for His benevolent love, providential care, gracious predilection, and secure accompaniment all through my life. I strongly believe that He will continue to shower His blessings upon me and assist, guide, and lead me on always.
I am overwhelmed with immense gratitude to our beloved Mother General, Sr. Chiara Cazzuola, and the Council Members who have entrusted me with the responsibility of animating, leading, and governing the Province of St. Thomas the Apostle. I shall do my best to fulfill this delicate responsibility and respond to the trust and confidence placed on me.
A special note of gratitude to you, dear loving Sr. Jacob Celine, the Visiting General Councilor, for accompanying us through the process of discernment for choosing a leader for the Province, and above all for your loving and encouraging presence today, and I look forward to your ever-ready wise listening, and for your able guidance.
