7-8 July 2014 Days of Retreat
These two days of retreat, with the theme "... the voice of the Holy Gospel is spread throughout the universe," were led by Father Massimo Reschiglian (OFM). At the end of the afternoon we had the opportunity to stay for worship, doing so as the memory of Mother Catherine said: "The most beautiful hours of our lives are spent at the foot of the tabernacle."

July 9-12: Reports given on the different provinces we have around the world.

July 11, 2014 Reading of emails and messages
If "A good day starts in the morning" ... ours was marked by joy for the many messages and emails received from different fraternities scattered throughout the world. Every letter that is received by us strengthens us spiritually and recharges the feeling of "the beautiful union that exists" between us.
