“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)
