The UISG XXI Plenary Assembly counted approximately 850 Superiors General of Congregations of Women Religious from 80 countries, united in Rome from 6 -10 May to explore the Plenary theme: “Sowers of Prophetic Hope”.
“This is what we women religious are called to be today: Sowers of hope” - said in her welcome speech UISG President, Sr. Carmen Sammut, msol. “As Superiors we need to ask ourselves how we nurture this hope, above all when we feel that our resources and strength are diminishing. What are the signs of hope that we are gathering in our congregations? Are our intercultural communities perhaps signs of hope in a world of division and war? How are we signs of hope for the many women and children who are suffering?”
The rich program of these days ended with the Holy Mass in the Basilica of St. Peter and a private audience with Pope Francis.
