Conclusion of Mary Ward Week 2017

On 30 January, with the celebration of her death anniversary, the week dedicated to Mary Ward came to a close.
For the sisters of the Congregatio Jesu and the IBVM (Loreto) in Rome it was a matter of great joy that Fr. Arturo Sosa, the General Superior of the Jesuits, together with two of his confreres of the Curia - General Assistants ad providentiam - Father Fratern Masawe SJ and Father John Dardis SJ, came to our house to celebrate with us. "You are my friends" (John 15:15) - with this moving sentence from the Gospel of St. John, Father Sosa opened his homily.  ‘The words "You are my friends” represents a revolutionary way of understanding the relationship between human beings and God. ...  May the Holy Spirit continue to inspire us and make us friends’.  This was the core statement of his homily that evening. After the Eucharist we had dinner together. It was a joyful evening for all of us, which we will never forget.

Mary Ward Week 2017

Every year, we, CJ and IBVM sisters and lay people celebrate Mary Ward Week  beginning on 23rd January (Mary Ward’s birth anniversary) and ending on 30th January (her death anniversary),recalling to mind with great appreciation this ”incomparable woman”. A booklet gives inspiration for reflection and prayer every day. Called to “something different”, that is the basic theme for 2017. It invites all of us to think about how best we can honor God in the service of the people today.
January 23 is also the day when young sisters of the Korean Province begin their life in the Congregation of Jesus. Sister Cecilia Yeom, one of the four General Assistants here in Rome, entered the Congregation  1991. So we could at the same time celebrate her Silver Jubilee. (text and photos/eka)
