I want to convey my thanks for the wonderful opportunity you gave me to attend the I. A. in Rio.
With immense gratitude to you and to Our Lord, I have experienced the wonderful fellowship of meeting with the large family of PLW in the world.
I can’t really express in words the fullness of this experience, but will try.
There was a warm loving current of the family, with a rich experience shared of love For God, love for each other, and love for Our Founder Fr Ignacio.I became so much more aware of the importance of self-criticism and of discerning the will of God in every situation.
I grew to know Fr Ignacio a little too, through the memories of others who knew him, and were at the culmination weeks. I was struck by his sense of responsibility to the PLW, to God, and to the integrity with which he wanted all to remain clear, pure, and transparent to us.
He left this wonderful legacy to us all , to be instruments of that love for the people of God, and to serve Him in this special way.
I was left with answers to so many questions, and a Good background to our statutes, and regulations.
I have a new view of our re-founding, and understand “Permanent Conversion”, as explained, not just as a book for preparing workshops, but as a way of life for us all.
I pray that by God’s grace, I will be able to share this information with our guides in SA, in a loving and simple way.I am still feeling very uplifted by my experience, and will pray for this flame to remain alive in South Africa.
Thank you especially for spending some time with me during the Assembly.
I hope to be able to see the Foundation House one day in the future.
I’ll be keeping you all in prayer.
With love, in Christ and Mary
