The News ODN Bulletin completes its first year.

May 2014 | Lestonnac ODN

Beatriz Acosta Mesa, odn (Roma, Italia)

A year ago we launched this electronic bulletin wishing to share with the various countries throughout the world the important happenings in the life and mission of the Company of Mary, as well as other articles and news of interest. We began it on this date, an important one for those who in one way or another form part of the Company of Mary: the canonization of Jeanne de Lestonnac, the Church’s recognition of her values and virtues, her qualities, her contribution to the history of education and religious life.

And life goes on. Once more, we remember in a special way this woman, because, as Kierkegaard says, to bring to mind those who have preceded us is an act of love, of love and, in this case, of fidelity to a person who introduced a specific way of living the Gospel. Her insight, tested through the passage of time and by its inculturation in different countries, gives meaning to those who drink from this source, and has been, and continues to be, a contribution to society and the church throughout all time.

This site wishes to be, more and more, a small sample of Jeanne de Lestonnac’s dream, one that, present in four continents, helps us dream a vision for reality, a dream of how to work in it, to contribute to it through education with Gospel values towards the humanization and the dignity of our societies.

We invite you to continue sharing news, articles, reflections, experiences… to make this medium an opportunity to share, enriching one another.
