SISTER NIRMALA RECALLS CENTRALITY OF CHRIST IN JUBILEE CELEBRATIONS

    ROME, 2 (NE) In a recent interview, Sister Nirmala, successor of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, emphasized the importance of not forgetting the centrality of the Lord Jesus during the Jubilee celebrations. "Christ is the center of the Jubilee," recalled the superior of the Missionaries of Charity, in view of possible distractions from the essential meaning of this Holy Year. "We must always keep in mind that all the celebrations have the purpose of commemorating the 2000 years of the Incarnation of the Word."

    On the other hand, to the question of what she wanted for the religious under her guidance, she answered: "sanctity." "We want," she further added, "to take the love of Christ to everybody, where the bishops need our help in order to aid those who live in poverty and darkness." Also, she made reference to the members of the congregation that had been murdered in Asian countries in the last months, as a consequence of the persecution against the Church.

    "Seven sisters have been murdered carrying out their respective labors of charity, but we follow Jesus and the persecution and death are part of the life of whoever follows Him," "We are not afraid," she added.
