"All hail O Mother, Holy One, All hail Canossa’s noblest-sprung,

All hail O Servant of the Poor, All hail Fairest Bride of Christ."

On 8 May 2019, we celebrated the Foundress Day with a Holy Mass including the sharing of Fr Martin Ip and Sr Teresa Wong, together with singing of hymns. We were encouraged to make good use of what God has granted us and to follow in the footsteps of St. Magdalene of Canossa in taking care of the needy.

Fr Martin reminded us that no life exists for nothing, as God has created each one of us with love and infused us with unique talents. A vivid example would be the legendary life of St. Magdalene of Canossa. Responding to a calling from above, our Foundress resolutely gave up her aristocratic life for a devotional one dedicated to serving the poor. Like our Foundress, we should place our trust in God and respond to God’s calling in his gracious plans.

Sr Teresa, on the other hand, shared with us her miraculous conversion from a rebellious youngster who lacked parental care and love, to a missionary after being deeply touched by her teacher, who was a Canossian Sister. Consequently, she made her decision to join the Canossian family as a missionary to pass the love by helping the poor, the inferior and the marginalised.

Sr Teresa also inspired us with her fortitude evident in her long terms of service in Taiwan and Mainland China, and her efforts to evangelize by providing physical, mental and spiritual support and enriching beliefs.

Sr Teresa reminded us finally to live up to the Canossian spirit which is to embrace God’s unconditional love and care for others. Such selfless attitude serves as a living example for us.
