They have already made 25 purple stoles. “We know that they will not only be used during the days of World Youth Day, but that they will also be sent later on to the poorest missions,” they comment. So, all the more reason to see each of their stitches as being doubly worth the effort.
Unsure of how they were going to cover the costs of all the material (fabric, thread, etc.), they entrusted themselves to Divine Providence. Their confidence was rewarded and even the cost of shipping everything from the United States has been covered thanks to donations.
The Sisters also comment that the initiative has helped them experience, in a very real way, what it means to be a member of the great family of the Church: “We can certainly say that we are participating in World Youth Day, not only with what we most dedicate ourselves to, our prayer, but also with our manual labor, making sacred linens used in the worship of God.”
