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.
