Sr. Dolores’ Synodal Reflection

Sr. Dolores’ Synodal Reflection

The ecclesial experience of synodality that I lived this past October is a grace that I hope spills out to all those who believe in Jesus and goes to all the communities. This experience reminds me of the gift and responsibility of being disciples, missionaries, and the call in personal and communal discernment to be moved by Ruah like Mary, to wake up creatively and announce, defend hope, life to the full for all of humanity and creation, walking together in complementary ministries and capacities.

Sr. Dolores’ Synodal Reflection

Hermana Dolores: Reflexión al Sínodo

Agradezco a Liza y a Kascha, su presencia cercana en Roma, su invitación y apoyo para compartir con toda la Federación, las hermanas y la familia San José, la gracia recibida en este Sínodo. La experiencia eclesial de sinodalidad que viví en este mes de octubre pasado, es una gracia que espero se derrame en todas las personas que creen en Jesús y así llegue a todos los pueblos. Esta experiencia me recuerda el don y la responsabilidad de ser Discípulas/os, Misioneros/as y el llamado desde el discernimiento personal y comunitario a dejarnos mover por la Ruah como María, para despertar la creatividad y anunciar, defender la esperanza, la vida plena para toda la humanidad y la creación, caminando juntos y juntas en complementariedad de ministerios y de capacidades.
