I address my most cordial greetings with affection to Daughters of the Immaculate Heart. That the old saying is always true, “where there are religious there is joy”. All the Religious congregations are formed from in depth of love of Holy Spirit. Daughters of the Immaculate Heart, the Vijayapuram diocesan congregation was born in Vijayapuram diocese by the inspiration of Holy Spirit through Rt. Rev. Dr. Peter Thuruthikonam my successor. “ if you put all the love of all the mothers in to one heart it still not equal the love of the heart of Mary for her children”(St. Louis of Montfort). As this congregation enjoys the maternal love and protection of immaculate heart of Mary they are called to spread the devotion of immaculate heart to the whole world and to take care of the poor and marginalized. I offer my best wishes and God’s abundant graces.
