NOTES FOR ELECTION TIMES.

We are in a stage of staying on the paths and looking, traveling and asking the ancient paths which is the good path… (Isaiah) looking back and looking forward. The Pope invites us to return to the sources. The source is not something static, it is something that flows continuously. Therefore, we must return to the inspiration of the founders without rigidities. This is done in prayer, dialogue and confrontation with the universal and local church. It is done on the way.

At a crossroads of grace there are choices between life and death. We choose life, but we will always leave alternatives behind, dying to them. Choose life to live more fully. It is good to ask ourselves what we are looking for. Create the conditions for grace to intercede and prepare ourselves to receive it. We must dispose ourselves to grace; of nature teaches us that, if there are the right conditions, life is born. The world needs us as yeast and as salt. No matter the age or the circumstances. We can be a presence that transforms us, be a presence of mercy, a bridge. Being transformed to transform: love, inclusion, justice and peace. In short, it is about choosing the life that God wants for us.

M. María Joaquina Lozano López, Superior General. (Excerpt from the opening remarks at the LAS Provincial Chapter, July 2022. Text inspired by Dr. Ted Dunn, “Embrace our vulnerability and its transformative potential”).
