ELM May 31st

28th-29th May

The days are long here in Llandudno.  We have been graced with outstanding sharing these last days.  We enjoyed a special Saturday and Sunday in Mary Ward country York.  We were greeted by our amazing Sisters of the Same Institute, the CJs.

The time together is enriching and inspiring.  Each day we begin with the celebration of the Eucharist and Gospel Sharing. Today, the Visitation was a special reminder of covenant love and commitment in the image of Mary and her cousin.  You are in our prayers.  In between our crucial conversations, presentations, and experiences we hold you close in all our considerations.  Each day we end our Gospel sharing with the prayer for the Cause!

Isabel writes…

28th-29th May

El fin de semana pasado, estuvimos en York. York es para nosotras, espacio sagrado. Visitar el nuevo museo de la CJ, rezar delante de su tumba en Osbaldwick y subir a Mount Grace fue una experiencia muy especial. Como Mary Ward hizo, rezamos por el futuro del Instituto

30th May

Agradecimos a Liz Cotter, que vino desde Irlanda para compartir con el grupo sobre la causa de beatificación de Mary Ward. Nos contagió su entusiasmo y sus logros y dificultades.

Geraldine nos puso al día de las finanzas del IBVM y nos recordó aspectos del Manual de finanzas, que tenemos que tener en cuenta. Su exposición fue muy clara.

ELM May 2016 Day 2

May 25, we began with Gospel sharing.  Noelle gave an inspiring opening address.  Macarena, Brenda and Igora gave their input on the last 16 months of Institute familiarization and informal visitation.  They spoke of the impact of seeing the Institute as Committed and Engaged, Just-Soul woman living within a context of Change and Transition striving to live with integrity with Jesus at the center of their lives in union of heart and mind.  It was intense and creative.  The summation seem to rally always into ONENESS.  There was much input, reflection questions, quiet reflection and conversation around what we have seen and heard during the presentation. Overall, it was a good way to begin.
