Canonization of Sr Mary of Jesus Crucified

Sunday, May 17 - After a long period of wait full of prayer and preparation, the community of via Brunetti, along with a large delegation of Betharramite religious, participated in the ceremony of the canonization of Sr Mary of Jesus Crucified, in Saint Peter’s Square.

Canonization of Sr Mary of Jesus Crucified

The rite, so solemn and so meaningful in all its parts (the petition to the Holy Father to enroll Sr Mary among the Saints, the formula of Canonization, the procession with the relics …) had as a background the blue of the sky, the white of the vestments of the concelebrants and the colorful congregation of faithful present in Saint Peter’s square.

The smile of Mariam, “the little nothing” - as she like to be called - , was looking on this extraordinary event reminding us that the real greatness lies in humility, because “humility is the kingdom of God’s heart” (from her thoughts).

The day after, all the faithful from the Holy Land, gathered in the Saint Mary Major Basilica to thank the Lord for the gift of the holiness of Mariam and Maria Alfonsina, the other Palestinian religious, canonized the day before. The Betharramite religious, along with Fr Gaspar, Superior General, attended this celebration presided over by Mons Fouad Twal, the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem.
