Sharing faith experiences – Sr. Liza CTC - I
Welcome to our special program on the Year of Faith, THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, a series on the lives of Inspiring People and Witnesses of faith in the Catholic Church from around the world. These are people who lived their ordinary lives in extraordinary ways. They are examples of great fortitude and virtue. Their unique stories inspire us to be rooted in our faith. God calls each one of us today to inspire our brothers and sisters and to be witnesses of our faith.
The Faithful Witness of this week is Sr. Liza CTC. She is currently the Superior General of the Congregation of Teresian Carmelites. Before being elected as Superior General last year, she was also Superior and Provincial. As a religious nun, working in various parts of India, she faced many challenges in her life and mission.
Our Faithful Witness of today, Sr. Liza CTC, Superior General of the Congregation of Teresian Carmelites, shares with us her faith experiences, spirituality and mission of her religious congregation, and the challenges she faced in her life and mission. Sr. Liza, a hearty welcome to Vatican Radio.

You are the Superior General of your Congregation, and your sisters work in Asia, Africa and Europe. How do you see the whole work of your Congregation, what do you focus on?
Are you restricting your services only to Christians or extend to all people?
Now share with us your vocation. Who inspired you? How did you choose this Congregation?
It’s something strange that your vocation coming from a book!
Then you joined the Congregation, and so you must have joined with teenagers in your formation because you were already and teacher?
