This Sunday, April 8, the beautiful ceremony of vows of two Italian missionary sisters was celebrated at the Corpus Domini Shrine of Bologna (Italy): Irene Scifoni, who has made her apostolic profession and celibate consecration, and Chiara Ammoscato, who has made her perpetual profession.

The Mass was presided over by the President of the idente missionaries, Fr. Jesús Fernández, and it was held in the Baroque Sanctuary of Corpus Domini, administered by the Id Institute since 1995. Fr. Jesús Fernández, in his homily, addressed some touching and inspired words to the two missionaries:

“The saint presents himself to Christ with an empty heart, but full of desires to love. How strong is this love for which everything is left! Let us free ourselves of all those thoughts that do not serve us at all and that occupy space in us. (…) To be fragile means to perceive the impressive strength of grace. Keep these words like Mary in your heart. (…) How difficult it is to say to Christ, like Peter, ‘yes, I love you’! Is it so hard to tell Christ yes? ”

Undoubtedly, it has been a time of countless graces not only for these two dear sisters, but also for the entire Italian idente family and for the entire Id Institute, with the beautiful sign of coinciding this day with the Second Sunday of Easter and Sunday of the Divine Mercy.
