“Everything really depends on how well you use your lifetime…” - (Bl. Frances Schervier)

 

nuova generazioneThe sentence holds simple words, with profound meaning. The next generation might even tell us that this sentence reflects what matters most for them: to be real, to be relevant to the world that encircles their lives, to be in relationship based on love and to be willing to offer a radical response to all of life.

 

 

In a world society where life commitments are tested and constantly questioned, fifteen young women boldly said a profound “yes” to God -- with their very lives. These women are teachers, social workers, therapists, pastoral ministers and doctors from Italy, Brazil and Senegal.

 

 

They are in Formation with the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor: the next generation of the daughters of Blessed Frances Schervier. They want to be a healing presence for our fragile world and wounded creation.
