Postponement of General Congregation 2020

Covid-19 is affecting our world with very serious implications. Most of the Counties are actually under lockdown, the numbers of sick people are increasing and, unfortunately, those who died as well.
In the light of this and not knowing how the virus will develop in the coming months the Generalate Team has taken the decision to postpone the General Congregation, which should have taken place in July-August this year, to a place and dates not yet defined.
We are aware that there are a lot of implications but, once again, God is calling us all to do things differently and we can only respond faithfully and knowing that, as Pope Francis said during the extraordinary moment of prayer last Friday in St. Peter’s square,  “God turns everything to our good”.

Feast of the Annunciation

In our CJ Complementary Norms [CN 10.2] we are reminded that - “All her life Mary Ward loved and reverenced the Mother of the Lord…Mary shared in the life and work of Jesus in a particular way.  We commend ourselves and our mission to her, as individuals and as the Congregatio Jesu…”

Today, the Feast of the Annunciation, we would like to share with you a prayer to Our Lady sent by Sister Esther Villahoz of the Spanish Province, and with this prayer to commend our forthcoming General Congregation to the intercession of Our Lady.



Prayer to Mary, woman of listening*

Mary, woman of listening, open our ears; grant us to know how to listen to the word of your Son Jesus among the thousands of words of this world; grant that we may listen to the reality in which we live, to every person we encounter, especially those who are poor, in need, in hardship.

Mary, woman of decision, illuminate our mind and our heart, so that we may obey, unhesitating, the word of your Son Jesus; give us the courage to decide, not to let ourselves be dragged along, letting others direct our life.

Mary, woman of action, obtain that our hands and feet move “with haste” toward others, to bring them the charity and love of your Son Jesus, to bring the light of the Gospel to the world, as you did.

Please join us in praying this prayer for our world at this difficult time as we ask God to bless and accompany all of us, His people, whether sick or well, and in particular those who are working so hard to care for those who are sick.
