We are inspired by Pope Francis’ call for consecrated religious to be “experts in communion” and witness to the power of sharing in a communal life even in a polarized Church and society. We are are also energized by the words of Sister M. Regina van den Berg, F.S.G.M who reminds us that “the consecrated religious must develop an eye for the beauty which “hides beneath the surface” of our everyday experience.”
We are hopeful about the future of our shared religious life. May our communion help us heal and enflame God’s world with love and hope!
