Gabriela_BRAZILWe’d like you to meet Sr. Gabriela Santos Andrade. Yesterday, on the feast of St. Angela, Gabriela made her perpetual profession as an Ursuline of the Roman Union in the chapel of Our Lady of Mercy in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.

She posted an invitation to Ursulines and our colleagues around the world to join her in celebrating her religious consecration ” . . . in the service of our brothers and sisters” and to accompany her in prayer as she lives the Gospel in the spirit of our foundress St. Angela Merici. Gabriela_BRAZIL_Convite

We ask all of our readers to join us in congratulating Gabriela and to give thanks for her commitment to God. We echo St. Paul’s blessing to the Ephesians as we pray:

May Gabriela know the love of Christ that surpasses all knowledge, so that she may be filled with all the fullness of God.
