"The invitation to serve at the border was the signpost that a curve lay ahead. A curve, once negotiated, that would set us on a path to see and experience religious life as inter-congregational, intergenerational and inter-cultural. The last several months have found religious women throughout the country living together, serving side by side, learning, growing, developing for the sake of the mission – a shared mission to those most in need."

La integración de la diversidad de la Iglesia Católica en los Estados Unidos es vital para la transición al ministerio de aquellos/as que están migrando de Latinoamérica y el Caribe. Este “webinar” contrastará las características históricas y culturales que dieron forma a la Iglesia de los Estados Unidos con la Iglesia de América Latina, subrayando las contribuciones que cada tradición trae al ministerio hoy. La meta será explorar las competencias interculturales que el ministerio en los Estados Unidos requiere de todos/as.

Conversations at the Well: Crossing-over to Meet the Other and Oneself

Acting on the Journey of Transformation

The call to transformation and to “reading the signs of the times” can simultaneously elicit deep attraction and provoke corresponding resistance.

In this workshop, beginning Friday evening, participants and the presenter will explore the shadow and the journey of consciousness; crossing over from repression and fear to humility and integration.  Praying dangerously, acting radically, living the gospel will fuel the crossing to personal and communal transformation.

The workshop included input, personal journaling, table and large group conversation. (November 18-19, 2016; Rancho Palos Verdes, CA)

A Path Towards Communion: Family Charisms in Dialogue

“Communion and the encounter between different charisms and vocations can open up a path of hope. No one contributes to the future in isolation, by his or her efforts alone, but by seeing himself or herself as part of a true communion which is constantly open to encounter, dialogue, attentive listening and mutual assistance. Such a communion inoculates us from the disease of self-absorption”. -Pope Francis

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

With joy and hope, we present to you the path which we would like to take together as Charismatic Families in these three years 2017-2020. It is a path which we have undertaken following the continuous invitation of Pope Francis to live communion not only ad intra in each Charismatic Family, but together as Charismatic Families, in order to be a real prophetic witness today.

We are conscious that it is a slow and demanding path at both the personal and community levels, but not an impossible one. It is a path which involves becoming conscious of opening out from the local community to that of the Order or Institute, from consciousness of the Order, Institute, Society or Association to that of the Charismatic Family and, finally, from the Charismatic Family to communion with all of the charisms in the Church. It is a process which will allow us to broaden our gaze, our heart and, above all, to go out with greater courage beyond the confines of our individual Institute in order to begin to dream together, at the local and global levels, “new spaces and places” where the gospel logic of gift, of fraternity, of welcoming diversity, of mutual respect and love is lived. The Charismatic Family is the place where we can develop and carry forward common projects of formation, of evangelisation, of social engagement in order that charity and charismatic creativity move all of us towards the challenges which are knocking at our doors every day. As Pope Francis says: if we are not united we will not be able to the build the future and be leaven for a society inspired by the Gospel.
