Roma (Italy), 04/20/2020, Coordination Team of Year of Grace.- Dear Sisters, Greetings of Hope from Jesus, the Risen Lord! He lives among us and makes us participate in his New Life, even in the midst of all the uncertainties and anguish that we witness with great pain in our world at this time of pandemic. We can make use of this time in the best way possible and change it into a favorable occasion to go back to our sources and rediscover our service of Charity. 

Since last March, we have started to publish different kinds of artistic works: drawings, stories, songs, poetry, posters and other creative works to make Marie Poussepin known to people of today who know nothing or want to know a little more about her, in view of the celebration of the Year of Grace for the 25th anniversary of her Beatification and evangelization. Some of these works are already or will be published on the website and some will be published in the second part of the book "Our history is mission".

Participation is also open to the laity, as mentioned in the letter of March 16, 2020. For this reason, we would like to remind you and ask you to encourage the laity to share with us: what do they understand from their experience of discovering the charism; how have the Charism contributed to their personal growth and mission; which other initiatives do they propose in order to deepen their spirituality for the proclamation of the Gospel from the point of view of the charism. It would also be an opportunity to encourage them to grow deeper in this time of grace that we are living.

We hope that everything will result in the spiritual growth of our religious family, that the proclamation of the Gospel will be intensified and that the canonization of our Mother Foundress will soon be made possible.

If you have any doubts or suggestions, please write to the coordinator of the commission, Sister Rosario Amelia Garcés del Castillo: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
