Washington (USA), 04/17/2020, Sr. Mónica García Alemán.- The silhouette of Marie Poussepin sealed with the name of each sister of the Vice Province of the United States was born in preparation for the 2014 Vice Provincial Assembly.

The silhouette of Marie Poussepin sealed with the name of each sister of the Vice Province of the United States was born in preparation for the 2014 Vice Provincial Assembly. God calls us, summons us, sends us, but it is through the face of Marie Poussepin that charity and community life become visible and palpable to all people who have encountered a sister of charity. In the same way, how can we show the face of M P if not through everyday life where we depend on each other. Only when we understand that we depend on each other, does M P's inspiration to contemplate the face of God become visible so that we can daily show it to others. She invited us to her home to live and die in the service of charity.

"Look, now is the favorable time" This was the invitation of the General Government in 2014, to revaluate our lives and to give a new impetus to the mission of the Congregation - new methods, new missionary maps, new resources, but in the end the same serene and calm face of MP who knew how to live and fulfill what was right in the eyes of God. Each Sister occupies an important point in the face of MP, her mouth, her nose, ears, eyebrows, eyes, veil, etc.. 

The time was favorable to show her face and invite us to live the gift of fraternity and friendship.

Besides Marie Poussepin's Face, we also created the house where each community lived; with the photo of local communities, and the hourglass measuring the time of charity.
