San Francisco Mother Ignacia Club Opens Arms to MIM Visitors
On 15 May 1999 the Mother Ignacia Movement of St. Patrick's Parish in San Francisco, California held a gathering where two guests would give talks on Mother Ignacia del Espiritu Santo: Rev. Father Enrico Ayo, Theological Assistant to the General Postulator for the Cause of the Beatification of Mother Ignacia del Espiritu Santo, in Rome; and Sister Maria Nicetas Dael, RVM, the National Executive Secretary of the Mother Ignacia Movement in the Philippines.
Father Ayo could not make it on the very day as scheduled due to some US visa problems encountered in Rome which cause the delay of his arrival. It was therefore left to Sister Maria Nicetas to give the talk. She spoke on the work being done for the cause of the beatification of Mother Ignacia and its progress in Rome. She then invited the audience to continue praying for the promotion of the cause so that in God's own good time, it will please Him to grant what we earnestly hope for.
An open forum took place after the talk and testimonies on the favors received through the intercession of Mother Ignacia were shared by Guada Garchitorena and Joy Morales.
Commendations are due to the organizers of the gathering, namely: Mrs. Conchita Masaoay, Bert A. Albano, MIDES Club Officers and Lay Members. Sister Maria Nena Juyad, RVM deserves a word of commendation for her work in coordinating the activity.
Incidentally, Sister Nicetas gave an extemporaneous talk to the residents of the Home for the Aging after the Holy Mass that Rev. Msgr. Fred Bitanga celebrated the previous day, May 14. The talk was given to inspire and encourage the residents who have been doing their share in faithfully reciting everyday the prayer for the beatification of Mother Ignacia.
