PARAGUAY, Amada Girett •
“Mission accomplished Mother Thrice Admirable! Thank you for allowing us to be your little donkeys,” the missionaries from Santa Rita prayed upon arriving on pilgrimage on Sunday, November 12, at the Shrine of Terruño in Ciudad del Este. They renewed their missionary commitment, there was a census of the Pilgrim Mothers, and a group celebrated their Covenant of Love.
Upon renewing the mission, they also prayed: “Just as one day you chose us to be your missionaries, today we continue to say, “Yes,” for one more year, but you have to give us that strength that comes from you, Mother, to continue on this road that is long but comforts the soul.”
Returning with renewed strength to continue the mission
Everything was a celebration in the Mother’s house, where she covers everyone with her holy mantle and transforms hearts to return with more energy to continue going on pilgrimage by taking her and her Son, Jesus, to all the families who need their words and closeness.
The missionaries from Ciudad del Este welcomed them with affection as always. “Our sincere gratitude also for them, and we are going to do more with the Blessed Mother,” they commented gratefully.
