"We cannot enter into communication with the other if we do not assume his/her language, his/her world, his/her categories..." we experienced it when we were asked to collaborate in the communication commission of the XII General Chapter of the Congregation.
A surprise, so much joy mixed with questions and fear, but with the certainty of wishing only to create relationships with the "outside" world of Religious Life ... if we want to call it that, even if we are fully convinced, and the experience we have lived confirms this, whether online or off line, we are always people with stories that want to intertwine, get to know and support each other.
There are two things that are in our heart after this experience of service for the religious family, which amazed us, fascinated and in love:
At the time of our daily appointment ... around 9.00 pm, the telephone started ringing, the computer was on and ready to work and the material to be formatted and inserted slowly arrived, piece after piece ... and everything, slowly, took form to offer each of you what you could enjoy and share.
How true it is that unity is strength!
Every evening, our conversations ended with a heartfelt THANK YOU coming from the heart ... because in addition to exchanging material for the site, we gave each other time to ask ourselves: how are you? This has allowed us to grow as sisters in Christ and at the service of the Church.
Oh, the power of prayer ... we felt it all! We are nothing by ourselves. Our being "Daughters of the Church" without all our friends would lack the most beautiful part.
We have hearts full of wonder and gratitude ... for each sister of our special Family, for every "virtual" friend and not, for the sisters in Christ of other Religious Families who have supported us, helped and encouraged us in this "bold" project, for every moment we have lived in this XII Chapter ... because everything has been a sign of His love for us, for the Church!
