Bishop Tambala who is a member of the Order of Discalced Carmelites (OCD) further urged parents and family members of Sr. Luciette not to look for any material support from their daughter, saying that this has the potential to disturb her from serving God.
The Prelate assured the nun’s family that God will bless them abundantly because they had sacrificed their daughter to God’s service.
He then asked Christians and all well-wishers to support the nuns at the Monastery in different ways to minimize some of the challenges they face in their everyday life.
The Local Ordinary of Zomba Diocese also took time to thank Bishop emeritus of Zomba Diocese, Bishop Allan Chamgwera, who was also present at the ceremony, for his effort in ensuring that the Monastery is built and the nuns have a home.
Speaking at the same function, Prioress Sister Mary Josepha, thanked all the people who came to attend the function and pleaded with parents who attended the event to send their daughters to the Monastery to embrace Religious Life.
“I am standing here to speak to you today, but I will not stand here forever. I am catching up with age, hence we would need girls to come and take over from us to continue with this noble service of the Lord,” said Sr. Mary Josepha.
