Sr. Poten on her 6oth year…

Right after our Golden Jubilee on April 24, 2008, I kept praying fervently that when the day comes for our Diamond Jubilee I will still be strong and healthy.

Ten years passed and the awaited day was just around the corner. May 16, 2018 finally came. For me, it was a great blessing and a privilege to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of my Profession of vows in the religious life.
On the day of the Jubilee celebration, I was very excited! As I processed to the altar, I saw my guests beaming with misty eyes. My heart responded, I seemed lifted up with joy and gladness. I cannot help but recall all the trials I encountered before this joyous occasion. Those bitter-sweet experiences formed me into what I am now. During the mass, I thanked the Lord from the bottom of my heart for the many graces I received and for helping me overcome my trials. But I am doubly grateful for His gift of vocation and perseverance in the service of the vineyard of the Lord.

Most of all, I thank the Lord for the success of this solemn occasion. I thank all AR sisters, our guests and all those who helped in the preparation of the many things needed in the accommodation of all guests.
I know I cannot thank the Lord enough.

    Sister Potenciana Azurin, AR, was our Treasurer at Saint Mary Academy, Guindulman, Bohol back in the early 80’s with Sr. Aparece as our Principal. Our 1983 Batch was blessed to have them (with Sr. Fulgence and Sr. Manny) as educators and school administrators at the same time. We had great memories and academic achievements at that time. Sr. Poten with her Bicol accent is always remembered and is in our hearts. It’s good to hear that she is doing fine and is the writer of this article. Just to let her know that all of us in SMA Batch 1983 love her and would like to congratulate her on her 60th year anniversary in religious life. Who could forget Sr. Poten?
