In 2009-2010, three Daughters of St. Paul from our Korean Province and one from our Italian Province successfully completed their university studies in Italy. Below is a brief summary of their theses:
Sr. Agnese (Yeo Jin) Yun earned a Masters Degree in Spirituality from the Theological Fac-ulty of the Teresianum Institute of Spirituality after presenting her thesis, entitled: Prayer: Light and Power of the Apostolic Life. The work compares prayer in the thought of St. Teresa of Avila and Blessed James Alberione. It concludes with Alberiones words: Prayer above all; prayer the life of all. Prayer obtains life and gives life to everything.
Sr. Fidelis (Jae Shin) No earned a Diploma in Spirituality from the Pontifical Gregorian Uni-versitys Institute of Spirituality after presenting her thesis on the theme: Formation of the Charism in St. Paul and in Blessed James Alberione. The work, the fruit of the authors re-search into the texts of both Paul and Alberione, examines their proposals from the perspec-tives of spirituality and formation.
The Spirituality of the Laity in the Evangelization of the Daughter of St. Paul: this is the title of the thesis presented by Sr. Ilma (Yung Ran) Yun in partial fulfillment of the require-ments for a diploma from the Pontifical Gregorian Universitys Institute of Spirituality. The thesis reflects on the urgent need for the Daughters of St. Paul to prepare themselves to col-laborate with the laity, as well as on the equally urgent need for the witness of life, for crea-tive and dynamic fidelity to the charism and for a change of mentality so as to discover to-gether with our Pauline collaborators new horizons for communicating Christ in todays cul-ture of communications.
Sr. Teresa Stagnetto concluded her studies at the Institute for Religious Sciences in Emilia Romagna with the presentation of a thesis that focuses on the spirituality of the Pauline Fam-ily. Entitled, The Christocentric Vision of Blessed James Alberione, the work gives readers a better understanding of the genesis of this thought, so central to our life, and also a better grasp of the heritage Blessed James Alberione left to the Church and to the members of the Pauline Family.
