Girardot, Cundinamarca (Colombia), 10/17/2021, Sr. Olga María Botia Sánchez.- In the context of the celebration of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty that was declared by UN General Assembly, through its resolution 47/196, ... it can be verified that, despite the efforts and initiatives of different organizations to make the world aware of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution in all countries, "the statistics of the World Bank and the United Nations show that there are more than one billion people living in extreme poverty in the world. Of this large total, 70% are women.

Barcelona (Spain), 10/13/2021, Srs. Gemma Morató and Conchi García.- To celebrate this October 14, a very dear feast for all of us, especially in this year in which we celebrate the 325th anniversary of the foundation, we wanted to recover a cartoon: "Marie Poussepin or the rapture for Charity" drawn and written by Sr. Nora Inés Fonnegra (province of Medellin) with the help of Guillermo J. Espinosa for the beatification in 1994. We believe it is a good remembrance and a nice souvenir. Inside we find some drawings that we have often used in the Congregation for various activities. May Marie Poussepin help us and enlighten us in these difficult times, may we know how to be like her.
