‘Fill the world with love’ sing the Golden Jubilarians!

The life and mission of SCNs Agnes Tudu, Cassilda Castell, Mercy Thundathil, Nirmala Mulackal and Roselyn Karakattu of the past 50 years was honored by their sisters in Bangalore Province on Oct. 1, 2017, in a Eucharistic celebration. An introductory video highlighted the joyful journey of each of the Jubilarians. Dancing to the tune of “Kushion se bhara prabhu yah din’- “O God! on this day filled with joy”, the temporary professed sisters led the celebrants and jubilarians into the chapel. Main Celebrant Fr. Mathew (order of St. Camillus) appreciated the life’s journey of the Jubilarians and invited them to experience and rejuvenate their earliest call that led them to God’s service. At the end of the celebration, the jubilee class sang together their favorite song ‘fill the world with love’. Every sister in the chapel was moved to tears as we heard them sing. After a delicious fellowship meal, the jubilarians were felicitated in a short cultural program prepared by members in formation and temporary professed sisters. The day was coordinated by Sisters Rita Puthenkalam and Olive Ekka, members of OGF of Bangalore Province.

In the morning of my life I shall look to the sunrise.
At a moment in my life when the world is new.
And the blessing I shall ask is that God will grant me,
To be brave and strong and true,
And to fill the world with love my whole life through.

And to fill the world with love
And to fill the world with love
And to fill the world with love my whole life through

In the noontime of my life I shall look to the sunshine,
At a moment in my life when the sky is blue.
And the blessing I shall ask shall remain unchanging.
To be brave and strong and true,
And to fill the world with love my whole life through

In the evening of my life I shall look to the sunset,
At a moment in my life when the night is due.
And the question I shall ask only God can answer.
Was I brave and strong and true?
Did I fill the world with love my whole life through?
