XIII SPD Foundation Anniversary

LIMA, August 15, 2011.-The day when the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, the Servants of the Plan of God, with deep joy and gratitude to the Lord for all his blessings, have celebrated the thirteenth anniversary of their foundation.

In Perú where the Servants were founded, the Eucharist was celebrated by Mons. Adriano Tomassi Travaglia, Auxiliary Bishop of Lima, who in his homily, talking to the Servants of the Plan of God said: “… the charisma of the servants, reveals them as faithful imitators of Holy Mary,… it is this spirit of imitation of the Holy Virgin that makes them capable of the radically of coming to the encounter to evangelize and testify the charity to everyone who is in difficulties or necessity”. The he added: “Your habit, so simple but beautiful, announces to us the consecration to God of the servants, making those who encounter you have an expectative of faith and serenity, virtues that are very much seeked in our times. And their emblem, that presents to us the infinite love of the Mother in her immaculate heart pierced with the swords of pain, offered for all of us and adorned with the white roses of purity of Holy Mary”.

In the city of Santiago of Guayaquil, in Ecuador, Mons. Ivan Minda Chalá, Auxiliary Bishop of that Archdiocese expressed: “we have lots of motives to join to this canticle of the Holy Virgin Mary and thank… the marvel of having generated in the hearts of these our sisters, Servants of the Plan of God, that unconditional love to the Lord, that total and definitive love. That is a marvel of the Lord, it comes from the Lord. How could we not sing and give thanks for this gift! How could we not be thankful for their testimony, their lives and the their joy which shows us that following with fidelity the Plan of God we can find our happiness, that there is no other way of being happy in our lifes!”.

In that way, in a spirit of communion we have been united though the celebration of the Eucharist in the company of friends, families and benefactors in our communities of Africa, Philippines, Rome and other countries of America.
