Sisters Kim Xuan Thi Nguyen and Symphonie Giao-Huong Ngoc Ngo made their perpetual profession of vows as permanent members of the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, Houston, TX on Saturday, January 1, 2022. Most Rev. Italo Dell’Oro, C.R.S, presided at the Eucharist held at the Immaculate Conception Chapel at Villa de Matel. Fr. Dat Hoang was the homilist.
In his homily, Fr. Dat likened Sisters Kim and Symphonie’s fiat to that of Mary’s fiat in consenting to become the mother of Jesus. According to Fr. Dat, “…only a woman who is madly in love with the Incarnate Word would profess for life the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience.” He affirmed that both sisters were touched by LOVE, which allowed them to submit to the will of God just as Mary did. He reminded them that by Mary’s fiat Jesus entered the world, receiving his life, blood, heartbeat through her.
We congratulate Sisters Kim and Symphonie and pray that God, who has begun this journey with them, will bring it to fulfillment. Ad Multos Annos!
Praised be the Incarnate Word – Forever.
“GATHER THE PEOPLE, ENTER THE FEAST. ALL ARE INVITED, THE GREATEST AND LEAST.”
