Sharing faith experiences II – Sr. Fabiola Fernandes
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 Fabiola Fernandes, a religious nun from the Indian state of Goa. She belongs to the Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate, popularly known in India as Nirmala Sisters. She is the fifth of eight children born and brought up in a traditional catholic family. In the second part of this interview today Sr. Fabiola speaks about her approach to life and mission.
Our Faithful Witness of today, Sr Fabiola Fernandes of Goa, India shares with us her own faith experiences, her mission and more. Sr Fabiola welcome back to Vatican Radio. Last week you explained your faith experiences at home, and you also said you were surrounded by people of other faiths, how in some way their faith affected you and yours affected them?
