MARVELOUS ARE THE WAYS OF PROVIDENCE…

IN STRETTI DI ERACLEA (VE) there were many ways we celebrated the bicentenary of the birth of Father Gregory both in our community as in the parish and in the pastoral collaboration.

 We share what we lived and celebrated on Sunday 24 April. Yes, a date, a special Sunday for all of us F.M.S.C.

 “The bicentenary of the birth of our Venerable founder Fr. Gregory Fioravanti   united us in prayer also thanks to the connection via Streaming with the Sanctuary of ‘Santa Maria del  Suffraggio’ in Grotte di Castro (VT) ".

 The link was advertised and some parishioners were able to follow, like us, the celebration of Grotte di Castro live. Someone said he was moved by the celebration.

To prepare for this event, we took care of the liturgies of April 3, (the death of Laura Leroux.) April 21, (anniversary of the canonical foundation.)  and  agreed, with the parish priest Don Davide Carraro, to make  the annual renewal  of vows in the Sunday Mass of 24-April 2022.

In the homily of the Eucharistic celebration, the parish priest Don Davide compared the person of Fr Gregory to apostle Thomas. He highlighted how Fr. Gregory let himself be led by the Faith, and believed in this work, uncertain from its birth, trusting in Providence.

Don Davide said; "  In the difficult situations in which he found himself, even in supporting the young duchess, Fr.Gregory sees with the eyes of faith how God challenges him and he allows himself to be led in absolute obedience and trust.

 The apostle Thomas, on the other hand, wants to touch the Signs of the Passion of his Master. We do not know if Thomas will put his finger on the wounds of the Risen Jesus Christ, but his great profession of Faith will come from him "My Lord and my God."

This comparison made Fr Gregory's faith, fidelity and humility shine and emerge. He lived the birth of our religious family by walking in the footsteps of Providence. So much so as to exclaim and write "Marvelous are the ways of providence to which no one has the right to ask why this in this way and not otherwise".

  This homily and this approach have aroused in us and in the assembly a particular moment of reflection and amazement.

Particular attention was given to this event by the newspaper: "GENTE VENETA" (newspaper of the diocese of VE -n.16, of 22 April 2022; edited by Don Giovanni Carnio

 and from the weekly: "4 PASSI SUL PIAVE" (newspaper of the four parishes where the sisters work) always edited by Don Giovanni Carnio

  Catechesis was also the place to make Father Gregory known and within it, we have developed some bookmarks to distribute to the people of the parishes.
