We look at our sister, our brother, with a heart that comes from a positive perspective, one that is free from prejudices and divisions. Words, gestures, smiles, our way of being, seem more spontaneous, more credible. What has happened? Something is changing! We are learning the fidelity of small gestures, of little things… miracles are happening!
Let us allow Jesus to come into our lives, into our homes and everything will be renewed. Our God is the God of newness and hope. A new humanity is emerging.
Let us return to what is essential, let us be builders of a new culture, the civilization of love. Let us be a part of this movement of renewal!
Brothers, what must we do? (Acts 2: 37). You must be born from above (Jn 3: 7).
Men and women of science, researchers, doctors, economists, thinkers, politicians, philosophers and theologians, anonymous men and women are seeking new models of life in society, new ways for a new humanity, creating a new culture.
And we, consecrated women, women of prayer, women of faith, what is our contribution to the improvement of our relationships and our life together? We have the sense that something needs to change in our lives.
My sisters, what must we do?
What contribution can we make to the construction of a world
that is emerging and wants to be different?
May each one ask herself, before the mercy of the Father, in the sincerity of her heart, what can I do?
Marie Rivier, open to the breath of the Spirit, attentive to the signs of the times, knew how to respond with determination, audacity and creativity to the urgent needs of her time.
God's love is greater than anything else. Let us be sensitive to its manifestations and let us raise our prayers to heaven for the world, for the Church, for the Congregation, for our families, for all those who suffer.
In communion with my Counsellors, I invite you all to bear witness to the joy and hope that flow from Easter. The greatest strength in the world is that of Faith, Hope and Charity.
