What grace!!!

It is always good to recognize ourselves as brothers and sisters on the road of our lives. It is in this perspective that we would like to share the joy we feel throughout our international session, which brings us together as sisters of the same mother, Saint Marie Eugenie; from different corners of the world. The theme of the said session is I can do everything in him who strengthens me (cf. Phil 4,13).  And it began on April 9 with the opening message of Sister Rekha Chennattu, Superior General of our congregation. We were all in the joy of being actually present for the session. In her meaningful message, she returned to the call to each one to discover more about God's plan for us. She invited us to realize that God always has dreams for us. It is therefore up to us to seek, to  discover  it by walking together.

We continue to give thanks to God for this time, full of life that allows us to return to the source to immerse ourselves in the experience of Mother Marie Eugenie in order to better live our vocation in the service of life. This is how our Sister Anne Descour introduced us  to an exercise in interiority on the theme of self-knowledge.  During her interventions, rich in experiences, she helped us to move towards a deeper discovery of ourselves, starting from our emotions and feelings. This, to live more evangelized relationships in our interactions. This theme addressed with the realities of our daily life, allowed us to become aware that we really discover ourselves in front of the other. Thus we are invited to have a positive look at the other that enriches us in what she / he is in totality.

This theme of self-knowledge, introduced us well in the preparation of the Paschal Triduum, having a positive look on ourselves, becoming aware that we are beings in the making.  The work to be done lies in believing that the change in ourselves is always possible by allowing the divine germ to grow in us.
