Renewal of Rita Aragón’s vows

Last Sunday, February 18, we celebrated the first renewal of vows of Rita Aragón. It was at the Colegio Mayor Vedruna, accompanied by the young people of the Colegio Mayor and Pastoral Center, the nearby communities and some friends.

It was a very beautiful celebration, in which we were able to count on the presence of our new Sister General, Mª Teresa Cuervo, who, with sororal affection, welcomed the renewal of vows and encouraged Rita to follow this path knowing that she is not alone, because the whole Vedruna Family embraces and welcomes her.

Rita has once again publicly expressed her desire to continue taking steps as a Carmelite of Charity Vedruna.

This is how she expressed it in her final thanksgiving:

“When I made my First Profession last year, one of the phrases in the chosen Gospel that made the most sense of all was “Abide in my love.” And here I am, one year later, thanking God for being able to remain in his love, which I recognize as the LOVE in capital letters of my life, and with the deep joy of living it and sharing it with all of you. Grateful to renew my YES one year later in a deep and full way. Thank you Lord for inviting me every day to keep your covenant with me”.

Thank you, Rita, for your new “yes”! We celebrate with you and give thanks to God, who called you and who will continue to sustain you.
