PRSC in Rome

The meeting of all the Provincial and Regional Superiors of the CJ continue here in Rome. “Is the CJ future-fit?” was the question around which there was group work, sharing and discussion in the plenary session. We are still continuing to respond to this challenging question. On Saturday we made a pilgrimage to the Holy House of Loreto, because of its association with both CJ and IBVM. This beautiful spot in Italy inspires many people to come and seek Our Lady’s intercession.  On her first visit to Rome in 1621, Mary Ward also prayed in the Holy House of Loreto.  (Text and photos/eka)

Retreat for Rumanian CJ sisters in Rome

From 2 to 9 April 2018, a group of sixteen members of the CJ Romanian province followed the path of the Spiritual Exercises in the footsteps of Mary Ward in Rome. This retreat was the culmination of a series of meetings of spiritual renewal which the sisters had begun in Romania three years ago with the aim of revitalizing their consecrated life in the CJ, and deepening their living out of the spirituality of Mary Ward.  The retreat was directed by Sr. Gemma Simmonds of the English Province and accompanied by Sr. Elena Gatica. Each day the sisters received material for their prayer during the morning at home and in the afternoon they went on pilgrimage to places related to the life and mission of Mary Ward in Rome and also of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. For all of them it was a new opportunity to deepen their understanding of the spirituality and vision of Mary Ward and her tireless struggle and perseverance in being faithful to what God revealed to her as His will: to found an apostolic religious congregation for women.
