At the Service of the Word


To celebrate the Sunday of the Word, about one hundred faithful gathered to proclaim and listen to the Word of God for 12 consecutive hours at the FSP book center in Hato Rey. The Book of the Acts of the Apostles and the Letters of St. Paul were read. The purpose of the experience was to encourage the participants to love the Bible and read it more frequently. “We have lived a new Pentecost!” exclaimed Sr. Milagros Miranda, Superior of the Daughters of St Paul. “Our book center was transformed into a place where the Word was proclaimed, listened to and welcomed by everyone not only with the ears, but also with the heart.”

At the end of the extended reading session, Sr Simona Rosario, one of the FSP organizers of the event, said: “It was an experience similar to that of the disciples of Emmaus, because our hearts were burning as we listened to the Word.”
