Roma (Italy), 03/24/2020, Coordination Team of Year of Grace.- Unusually, during these days, most of the world - the global village that Aetatis Novae was already talking about in 1992 - is in quarantine for the coronavirus (COVID-19). In addition to intensifying prayer and putting in God's hands this world in which suffering is aggravated, it is convenient and healthy to seek daily activities to help cope with confinement. Therefore, with this proposal, we encourage you to dedicate a part of time to discover the most artistic part of your life.

In this year of grace in our Congregation for the 25th anniversary of the beatification of our Mother Foundress, Marie Poussepin, as we relive this event at the present time through our memory, we write to you from the commission of the Year of Grace. We are pleased with the good reception of the documents shared on the website of the Congregation, in the section specially created for this occasion.

We also are aware that various events have been organized in all the structures and that a variety of materials are being generated to commemorate the event of the beatification. We know as well the interest of our sisters to deepen the reflections shared by some of our sisters, which are published on the webpage. We hope that everything will result in the spiritual growth of the Congregation and will lead to the canonization of our Mother Foundress.

Sr. María Escayola Coris, Superior General, in her circular of March 10, 2020, has presented a series of initiatives that will help us to continue to be in this spirit of celebration during this of Year of Grace. In addition, as a commission, we want to encourage you to participate in the elaboration of artistic creations of all kinds: drawings, stories, songs, poetry, posters or whatever comes to your mind to make the person of Marie Poussepin known to our brothers and sisters, people of today who may not know anything about her or who may want to know a little more about her. Participation is open to sisters and laity, always in view of this celebration for the purpose of evangelization. Some of these works may be published on the website or, in the second part of the book "Nuestra historia se hace mission” (Our history becomes mission).

Similarly, we ask you to send us write-ups with photos of each of the works or initiatives that are named after "Marie Poussepin, Sainville or Dourdan" and that were not included in the first edition of the book.

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

United in love and prayer,

Sr. Rosario Garcés del Castillo, Sr. Reetha Mechery, Sr. Blanca Aurora Marín Hoyos, Sr. Gemma Morató i Sendra y Sr. Pélagie Kaboré.
