I write this letter to express my great joy and sincere gratitude for the service you provide to students of Santa Croce. May Our Almighty God pour out His blessings upon all of you and your families. Jesus never closes his eyes to those who perform a great service on his behalf, and you are making a sacrifice of great value.
My name is Fr. Sherin and I am from India. I have been fortunate enough to come to Rome to study theology at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, and am currently in my last year of studies. This experience has been incredible, especially since the university is made up of students from all over the world. When I look back and reflect on this time of formation, I see many happy memories with people who I am so grateful for.
Now it is almost time to return to my country and my diocese. Everything has been made possible due to your great sacrifices, time, money and prayers. Whenever I speak with my parents I explain that there are many hands, known and unknown, which have been helping me in my studies and formation. Now that I have almost completed my formation in Rome, please know that I will always pray for you and for all the people who have helped me.
May Almighty God bless you with His abundant mercy and blessings.
With great affection and respect,
Fr. Sherin Joseph
