Religious life in India


"Our strength is our capacity to transform others, and our weakness is our ignorance about our own power."


Interview to Sr. Maria Nirmalini, Superior General of the Apostolic Carmel Congregation, assumed the role of president of the Conference of Religious in India in January, the national body of religious major superiors.


Nirmalini shared with Global Sisters Report her views on various issues, especially the empowerment of women religious in India:


"Our educational institutions are centers for transformation and empowerment. Our medical facilities give healing touch to all, our social work centers act as tools for justice, freedom and dignity for the least and the lost ones in society. We have a significant role in society, but sadly we have not realized our strengths or asserted our dignity as God's chosen women.

I was amazed to note that we have more than 1,000* qualified doctors, hundreds of lawyers, thousands of teachers, several engineers, social workers, psychologists and other professionals. And yet, we remain dependent, helpless and obedient."
