Rome, 1 January 2019
Once again, we meet on the edge of time: the old year goes away and a new one comes. Not everything in our lives happens at once, at the same time, immediately. We need a rhythm of events. Every year gives us this rhythm, which makes order in our life, purifies us and allows us to touch real life.
For the coming New Year, I wish you, most of all joy - and as its fruit - the strength, which will be practiced in your daily life of this next year. May this new year bring all of us good and happy days, rich in grace and God's blessing.
May Mary, Mother of God guide us every day into the beautiful world of God. Let us entrust to her our life, our vocation and the path of faith. With the whole Church, let us ask Christ, the Prince of Peace born in Bethlehem, for the gift of peace and hope.
Happy New Year!
Sr. Izabela Swierad, SAC
Superior General with the Council
