CALLED         TO            BE           CREDIBLE          WITNESSES         TO          THE          COMPASSION           AND        JOY          OF          THE           GOSPEL
In the middle of Lent, another ray of light! The Annunciation of the Angel to Mary marks the beginning of the redemption of Man. God comes to meet us...
On March 19th, we celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph. This year, we celebrate this feast on the 20th, because the 19th is Lenten Sunday. Joseph’s mission is certainly unique and unrepeatable, because Jesus is absolutely unique. In his guardianship of Jesus, forming him to grow, he is a model for every educator, especially every father.
On the occasion of the birthday of Pope Francis, the Spanish magazine "Vida Nueva" interviewed several people of his generation. Among the persons interviewed was our Sister Justina de Miguel, missionary in Senegal.
Ash Wednesday opens the Lenten Season. Lent is a favourable time for letting ourselves be grasped by Christ so that we may become more like him. It is a favourable time for showing concern for others by small yet concrete signs of our belonging to the one human family. Above all it is a “time of grace”.
