From our Sisters in Jerusalem and Bahia Blanca

From our Sisters in Jerusalem and Bahia Blanca

The groups of Sisters who are taking part in  two very powerful experiences write to us full of enthusiasm.  These are Project Jerusalem, which aims at rediscovering the centrality of the Word of God in the Salesian Charism and The Missionary Spirituality Project that is taking place in the areas to which our first missionaries were sent by Don Bosco and Mother Mazzarello. 
The Sisters of Project Jerusalem, from many Provinces of Africa, Europe, Asia  and America, began officially on October 12th, with the celebration of the Eucharist on the Mount of Olives.   From here they could contemplate the Cedron Valley, the walls and square of the temple and a large part of the old city.  Our Sisters write: “It was very moving to ‘see’ the Holy City like the pilgrims who come from all parts of Palestine singing with the Psalmist ‘our feet are now standing before you, O Jerusalem’ (Ps 121,2)”.   After the Mass, our Sisters visited the Tomb of Our Lady, the Grotto of the Arrest, the Garden of Olives, the Basilica of Gethsemane, the Monastery of Mary Magdalene, the  Dominus Flevit,  the Pater Noster and the Church of the Ascension.  
Another equally holy land is the one walked by our first missionaries, whose lives of witness to the total gift of self are arousing the enthusiasm of our Sisters from Canada USA, Mexico,  Perú, Colombia, Brazil, Chile , Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay, who are gathered in Bahia Blanca. In these first days there was a lot of sharing to get to know each other.  They tell us: “The Celebration of the Eucharist close to the tomb of Laura Vicuña strengthened our conviction that young saints grow in community”.  The setting of the scene for the Project took place through study  and reflection on Biblical, ecclesial and congregational documents.

All we can say is that it was a great experience” .
