Gather It Up, It's Free

By Marie-Paule Sanfaçon, m.i.c.

The COVID-19 world crisis has isrupted all of our lives and disturbed our peace of mind. We need comfort, human warmth. The beautiful summer season is here: let’s go, let’s gather the good moments it offers us, let’s warm our heart to its sweet rays of sunshine and make wishes. It is free and we need it! As Godefroy Midy, sj., wishes us:

“A single ray of sunshine is enough to chase away a lot of shadow” (St. Francis of Assisi).

I make you a wish: May the sunbeam in you chase away your shadow.

A second wish: May you learn to welcome your own sunbeam.

A third wish: May you learn to look at others’ sunny side, not their shadow.

Your turn to offer me a wish: That I exercise my ministry as  a  priest  from  my  sunbeam,  constantly  fi against my shadows.

Simon Peter, after denying Jesus three times, heard a rooster crow and saw Jesus looking at him. Simon wept bitterly. His weeping was his ray of sunshine that chased away the shadow of his cowardice.

The greatest tragedy in life is not our sin, but our refusal to admit it and ask for forgiveness.

Ah, what beauty is forgiveness! How beautiful is repentance! Two beautiful rays of sunshine.

A TOTAL YES

By  Marie-Paule Sanfaçon, m.i.c.

Is it not surprising, that young people today dare to pronouce perpetual vows, to consecrate themselves to God by a total yes? And yet, God continues to call young men and women to follow Him in the mission of proclaiming His message of love for humanity.

At the time of Venerable Delia, 1941, young people were also listening for the call of vocation, and enrolled in our apostolic school to get to know each other better in order to listen for the call they felt in their hearts.

Faith requires boldness, deep convictions, listening to one's deepest self in order to discover the traces of God who calls one to surpass oneself in a service of the Church.

Before this great day of commitment, these young people were supported to discern within themselves the sources of this call to follow Jesus.

Why choose a Marian, missionary community? As it did for Mary, the strength of the Holy Spirit acts in them and inspires  them to leave everything behing, in a gift of self without return. They bring to the Church the beauty and dynamism of their youth and, with Mary, in thanksgiving for every gift received, they will be able to say: Do whatever He tells you...
