Welcome to the website of the Society of the

PENTECOST 2017

Religious commitment

is not

an occasional flare of emotion;

it is, rather,

a permanent graced condition

of the human heart.

Margaret Slachta

 

In order to have a deep realization of the life-giving character of the vows and to help us plumb the depths of their mystery, Sister Margaret referred to them as "the vow of bridal love for our Lord, the vow of unity with the will of the Divine Spouse, and the vow of spiritual independence from created goods." We trust that the Spirit of God will enable us to live out the deepest meaning of our vows.

(from the Constitutions of the SSS)

 

 

At Pentecost 2017 one novice makes her first vows and two sisters make final profession in the Hungarian District; young sisters in our four districts renew their vows.

Several sisters celebrate God's faithfulness in their lives: twenty-five, forty, fifty, sixty or seventy years of vowed life as sisters of Social Service.

 

Motto 2017

Peace I leave with you;

my peace I give to you.

Not as the world gives do I give it to you.

 

The SSS participated at the World Youth Day in Krakow

At the Vocation Booth of the Sisters of Social Service an international group of sisters (coming from Cuba, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and USA) ministered to young people coming from different parts of the world to Krakow. The sisters listened to them, shared with them the joy of their call, and invited them to follow Jesus the way He calls them. It was a wonderful experience for them to work together, especially giving the workshop "From Smoke (of cigarette) to Incense" on the life of Blessed Sára Salkaházi. It was an opportunity to share their own special gifts for a common purpose to make Blessed Sára known to the listeners.

The other great experience connects to the visit of the Holy Father. He came really close to the participants of the WYD by dialoguing with them, by strengthening and empowering the youth to make a difference in the world, to make the world a better place. Pope Francis encouraged the young people to have freedom to ask questions and follow the call of Jesus in their lives, to make bridges between the hearts of people and between different nations. It was a powerful experience to pray in silence for the people who could not come to Krakow, for the marginalized, the refugees and the immigrants. It was also very moving to see thousands of young people on their knees in front of the Blessed Sacrament at Misericordia Park during the Prayer Vigil. Silence and tranquility filled the place as well as the hearts of all those present. People could experience the huge contrast between the insecurity caused by the recent world events such as terrorist attacks and the very peaceful prayer at the Misericordia Park.

Let My Mercy flow!

Let My Mercy flow!
Engedjétek, hadd áradjon irgalmam!
Nechaj moje milosrdenstvo prúdiť!
Dejen que fluya mi misericordia!
