1st Sunday of Lent: Our displaced friends teach us to have a courageous heart

As Vedruna Family we join this spiritual itinerary that aims to be a help for the Lenten season offered by JRS (Jesuit Refugee Service), which, as they themselves affirm,“tries to bring us into communion with our brothers and sisters who have been forcibly displaced”.

We unite ourselves especially this Sunday, February 18, with what we assumed in our chapter document Born Again:

We enliven our commitment to the migratory and refugee movements affecting many countries. It is necessary to strengthen cooperation in order to provide dignified living conditions to each migrant. We want to have a global view of reality in order to act locally and promote a path of shared narratives that strengthen our roots”. (NdN 21)
