Our delegation of Madagascar has opened its fourth Pauline Book Center in the country, this one in the diocese of Fianarantsoa. The locale was inaugurated on 31 October 2020 by Right Reverend Vincent Rakotozafy, Bishop of Fort-Dauphin. In her welcome speech, Sr. Solange Randrianirina, Delegation Superior, reminded everyone that a Pauline book center is by nature a place of communication and dialogue, where everyone can find light and inner peace. She then read aloud a message from the Institute’s Superior General, who expressed her deep joy for this event and said she joined the Daughters of St. Paul throughout the world in offering our sisters of Madagascar the Congregation’s best wishes for this new Center of light.
A very meaningful moment in the inauguration ceremony was the enthronement of the Bible in the book shop. We thank the Lord for this latest “pulpit” of evangelization and ask the Holy Spirit to help the FSP presence in Fianarantsoa attract new vocations to the Pauline mission.
