murder and hatred

In this period of murder and hatred, in this time when there is one disaster after another, may this Christmas be for everyone a time of HOPE.
The One we are waiting for is the Savior of the world.  At the foot of the crèche, beg him to appease this hatred that is sweeping humanity.

La pandémie Covid-19 touche le monde entier. Ceci a entraîné un changement brusque de la vie à cause du confinement. Nos sœurs racontent comment cela est vécu là où elles sont.
                                                        “I am the living bread that came down from heaven.  Whoever eats of this bread will live forever.” (Jn 6:51)  
                        Dear each of you,                                                         
"Spiritual childhood is a matter of trust and self-surrender into God’s hands… like that of the little child whose father pretends that he is about to throw him off a high cliff, and the child bursts out laughing when he sees the cliff below him because he is in his father’s arms and he knows well his father will never let him go." (lsr Magdeleine)
Little sister Marta Naoko came to Rome from Japan for a formation session.  She tells how she “lived” this event on September 8, 2019.
“Before final profession the little sisters will gather for a ‘final profession novitiate’ (or ‘Common Year’), coming together from all continents.”  (from the Constitutions N°36) This year 12 little sisters from 10 countries were together for their Common Year that ended on August 14th.  In the morning the celebration of the Eucharist took place at the tomb of St Peter in the Vatican, a sign of their attachment to the Church.
