As I arise at dawn,
I look out of my window
And gaze at the smiling orange sun
Sitting reverently behind the Mornese hills
inviting me to adore its creator.
Sr. Moire the Animator, spoke about the spiritual friendship of Mary and Petronilla, and
how they complimented and helped each other towards their goal of doing everything purely for the love of God. Their friendship was of a spiritual nature as Jesus was the center of their lives. Petronilla played a vital role in Mary’s life; without her Mary could not have achieved as much.
In the afternoon we prayed the rosary in the village of Mornese at the various places of interest where Mary and Petronilla met, prayed, worked, and mapped out their future mission together. The reflections were taken from the letters of Mother Mazzarello and from her life we were inspired by her simple faith, determination and passion for Jesus and the young.
We watched the movie on the life of Main where it portrayed a modern woman, full of courage, insight, strong faith, and open to the needs of the modern world.
