Mary, our teacher on the path of life.

November 2014 | Lestonnac ODN

Beatriz Acosta Mesa, odn y Equipo General (Roma, Italia)

We have recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. We've seen people smile and rejoice in this event and how even the sky was filled with music and colors. This suggests that other walls that exist today that seem insurmountable and are hardly penetrable, may one day be torn down.

With our feet on the ground, we want to be able to dream that another world is possible; starting with our personal and daily experience, without closing our eyes to what is happening around us and beyond our borders. We need to keep dreaming and do it with the kind of heart that does not allow the pain of those who suffer to go unnoticed; a heart that aches when people must endure violence, war, injustice, dishonesty, lying, and a heart that humbly recognizes the many opportunities that exist in every human being.
We want to keep dreaming while we work towards making our dreams real and tangible, speaking words of truth, taking small steps to climb high walls. We hope that reading these NEWS is a help to continue walking with dynamic hope.

This November, the Company of Mary remembers Mary Our Lady in a special way, the woman who trusting in a promise of fulfillment was able to accept reality, with its lights and shadows, and did everything in her power to transform it. She is our teacher on the path of life.
