Athletes of Life

Just a few weeks ago, I was glued to my television screen, watching the performance of athletes from all over the world at the Beijing 2022 Olympics. Always higher, always faster, always giving it their all to win medals...  May these texts inspire us to want to commit our- selves to change for the better. Let us be athletes of Life...

Letters to Future Generations

Olivia, my dear grandniece...eighty years separate us but do not distance us. You live in a world of rapid change that I did not experience at your age. Yes, there were worries, but also hopes in those times sometimes troubled by wars. And, new inventions have appeared, which you are benefiting from today...

Autumn Magazine 2021

A New Beginning

With the rhythm of the seasons, the leaves on the trees amaze us with their shimmering colors, going from yellow and red to renewing themselves in spring with a tender, promise-filled green. In the same way, MIC Mission News magazine is having to reinvent itself in order to move forward. It is, in fact, necessary to know how to turn the page to be born again.

 

With Gratitude and Boldness: Bravely Facing the Future!

As MIC Mission News prepares to take on new challenges, gratitude wells up in my heart. There are so many reasons to give thanks for all that has been achieved by our thousands of sub- scribers, women and men, over the past century! And isn’t gratitude one of the characteristics dear to Venerable Délia Tétreault, our Foundress, who gave birth to this magazine, which was an innovative project at the time? Now, here we are at the dawn of a renewal, daring to bravely face the future well beyond the age of one hundred!
