“A vocation is always a supernatural fact, I would say extraordinary,
even if all has taken place in the ordinary course of our life.
The Gleaners of the Church have been born to fulfill
a vocation of love towards God and our brothers and sisters ….
for the needs of the times ….
And the Church welcomed us … gave us a profound spiritual life
and an apostolic drive ….
And all of us have journeyed….”
(Pia Tavernelli 1970)
