Pentecost in Huaura. Peru
Huaura was the venue chosen for the 2019 Pentecost celebration. We had the joy of welcoming our Associate Brothers and Sisters of Lima, Medio-Mundo and even from Huaura, like the children of the same family who reunite once a year. We have shared the moments of joy and sorrow, reviewed together the letter of our Superior General, Sister Anne-Marie Foucher, "The courage to go out", linked to the reality in which we are now living, in the world, and to an even greater extent in our country at a political level (problems of femicide, corruption on behalf of the authorities and private actors...). This letter gives us the strength to come out of ourselves, of our fears, to reach all those who suffer, with a heart renewed by the spirit, at the image of the disciples at Pentecost.
Father Roland, in his homely, also invited us to let ourselves be renewed, transformed, comforted, sanctified and enlightened in our life, our faith, to be able to carry the Gospel to disadvantaged people, seeking to know our so fragile church, to not be afraid of being closer to God and to the people. With a converted heart and filled with joy, we have renewed our vows, before the Christian community, as religious sisters, and our commitments as Associates.
This encounter helps us to renew our life, to be more united. We ended our day by a festive meal, prepared and served by the Associates: the big cake and the good wine could not be missed... Let's ask the Spirit to unite us more as family and also to unite with others.
