4. Sr. Marguerite Marie CP, Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Religious Profession

Sr. Marguerite Marie of the Blessed Trinity, CP (Midori Matsuda) celebrated her 50th Year as a professed Passionist Nun last 5 May 2015, Our Lady of Hope Monastery, Koronadal City.

She made her profession 16 May 1964.  Hence the golden jubilee anniversary was last 2014 but the celebration was postponed since the Monastery Chapel was not yet finished.

Bishop Dinualdo presided, delivered the homily.  Eleven (11) priests concelebrated.

Bishop’s homily

  • True love. Song of Songs 8: 6-7
  • True love is rewarded with “free access to the tree of life” – everlasting life with God who is Love and free entrance to the City through the gates!” (Rev. 12: 12-14, 16-17, 20). In Christ alone the soul can be satisfied.
  • Bridesmaids to wait patiently for the groom to arrive and provide their torches with enough oil (prudence, Mt. 25: 1-13).

Sr. Marguerite Marie answered Jesus Christ’s call “come, follow me”.  She followed Jesus who was poor, chaste and obedient even to the cross (4 Vows of the Passionists).

Sr. Marguerite Marie thanked everyone and narrated her love story.  Congratulations!
