SPAIN, Pilar Martín Moreno • Asterix (you probably know the French comic series by René Goscinny) lives around the year 50 BC in a fictional village in northwestern Gaul. It is the only part of the country not conquered by Julius Caesar, and is therefore surrounded by four Roman camps. In many Asterix books, the main plot is the attempt of the Roman army to occupy the village, but they do not succeed. This village is invincible because it has a druid who makes a magic potion that makes themRead More
Flüchtlinge aus der Ukraine
POLAND, Father Arkadiusz Sosna •  Until now I have associated the “Four Seasons” with the composition of Antonio Vivaldi. This year it is quite different: in our Sion, the four seasons from March until today related to the presence of refugees from Ukraine and constant change. It is difficult to speak of refugees when the weeks fly by, and we continue to share this tough time of war; people have become our guests. — From the beginning of March 2022 until today, two people have been with us permanently. ARead More

POPE FRANCIS – MEETING WITH THE SCHOENSTATT FATHERS • On Thursday, September 1, Pope Francis received the participants of the General Chapter of the Schoenstatt Fathers. The Pope emphasized that the mystery of the redemption that Our Lord Jesus Christ has accomplished for all humanity and the whole world has the characteristic note of the Hebrew word berith, covenant, covenant. The blood of Jesus shed on the Cross and offered as a sacrifice of love for all of us (cf. Mk 14:24; 1 Cor 11:25) constituted an irrevocable relationship betweenRead More
UNIVERSAL CHURCH, Maria Fischer – with material from the website of the Dicastery for the Laity, the Family and Life • The document has been published, “Catechumenal itineraries for married life. Pastoral guidelines for particular Churches“. The document is an initiative of the “Amoris Laetitia Family Year” and responds to the Holy Father’s desire to offer new paths for preparation for the sacrament of marriage. — “The joy of love that is lived in families is also the jubilation of the Church”: these are the first words of Amoris laetitia,Read More

PARAGUAY, Maria Fischer • It is amid this meeting full of questions, presentations, conversations, answers, and laughter, that I understand more clearly than ever what these more than two years of pandemic have done to all of us. It is not the same to communicate at a distance, read messages and watch videos, as it is to sit in the same place, look at each other, listen to each other, “feel” each other. It is the morning of April 21, at the headquarters of the Dequeni Foundation in Fernando deRead More

PARAGUAY, Cristi Santacruz • Today while going through Twitter I read the affirmation of a graduate specialist in addiction prevention and treatment: “The closer the family is, the farther away the drug is”. A statement that rang loud in the ears, but louder in the heart. — In 2016, when I started my apostolate of visiting every Saturday the Integral Educational Center of Itauguá and La Esperanza, for children and young people in conflict with the law, I heard hundreds of stories that have one factor in common: The familyRead More

By María Luisa de Maccaferri, Monterrey, Mexico • “2022, a new year marked by the challenges inherited from the previous ones, the pandemic and its consequences, how do you personally feel about this calendar period we are beginning, I am struck by the words of the Holy Father with the theme of indifference that seeps through like a virus; indifference to the poor, to the poverty that little by little is also seeping into the middle classes as well”. F. José María García’s comments became a lively conversation that tookRead More
