Dear Sisters and Associates,
Greetings Rome, as we prepare to celebrate the Feast of dear St. Joseph.
Each year the focus of reflection for our celebration takes a different slant respecting the ever-changing needs of the time.
Today, we are living in an extremely difficult time in which suffering due to greed and corruption manifests itself every. Let us imagine for a moment that we are holding our beloved planet in contemplative silence, bringing the awareness of the deep pain and suffering in our world closer to ourselves.
If every age has its own paradoxes, seventeenth century France in which we had our beginnings was certainly no exception. On the one hand, it was an age of hierarchy and order, a period dominated by classical harmony and external propriety.
Our Vocation is a call from God, heard, discerned and responded to in faith and in love. The call to religious life is a call to be a prophet. Religious are meant to be the wake up call for the church.
