PHILIPPINES TYPHOON RAI 30/12/2021

PHILIPPINES TYPHOON RAI
PHILIPPINES TYPHOON RAI During these days, the whole Philippines is suffering from the typhoon Odette (with the international name: RAI). The most affected areas are Visayas and Mindanao. There is no electricity and water. All the transportations to these regions are suspended, therefore it’s difficult to distribute the typhoon aids to the people. The typhoon is moving out of the Philippines’ territory, but there’re fears widespread landslides and flooding may have claimed more lives. Our sisters in Cebu community are in stable condition. Despite of this trying situation, they’re reaching out to the people with all the means that they have by distributing water and basic needs assistance. In Metro Cebu, all the foods and water are selling overprice up to five times as before; and it’s hard to buy. The government announced that it will take more time to transport the typhoon aids and restore the electricity. We have received the supports and funding from Delwende. They were the first to offer help to the victims through the project of our sisters. We are grateful and feel committed in reaching to the cry of our brothers and sisters.

After the religious profession, the Delegation has been privileged regarding formation instances that help and enrich its members as well as the opportunity to share life with other sisters from other parts of the congregation. We began with a meeting of juniors that began already last September and is organized every two months to accompany the sisters in their processes of Juniorate handle by sr. Maribel Sanchez, General councilor, and sr. Carmen Villalon, Superior of the delegation. The intense days continued with a webinar in administration for all the sisters of the delegation on November 28 and that will continue next year due to the broad theme that covers it by our General Administrator sr. Begoña Escrihuela. On November 30 and December 14, the communication and youth ministry teams began a series of meetings regarding communication and network management with our sister Ana Belen Soriano. Finally, on December 19, the Korean communities had a formative meeting on the theme of synodality accompanied by the Superior of the Delegation, an instance of sincere sharing and above all in tune with the new guidelines of our Church. Almost at the doors of Christmas and New Year, we want to express to God our gratitude for all these moments that, although they are virtual, do not diminish in any way our desire to respond to our call to be Consolation in these Asian lands. Thanks to our invited sisters for helping us to grow more in our commitment and the Congregation to facilitate these opportunities.

From October 23 to 24 the Sisters of the Delegation of Asia gathered to have their IV Assembly online.  It was held the first time this way because of the current situation of Covid-19 in which we are facing different realities in each country and we couldn’t go out to do the assembly as before. Sr. Maria Josefa, General Counselor accompanied us during the two days. Sr. Pepita Serrano, a sister who belongs to the Congregation of the Sisters of the Guardian Angel helped us with the translation from English to Spanish.

In the first part, the teams of the Delegation Government, Youth Ministry, Communication and Government itself reported about the group members, main work, concerns, and the challenges and difficulties in their respective tasks. As well as, each community shared how they have been carrying out their mission with different apostolic tasks, formation process at different levels, and the challenges and difficulties received in the document New Wineskins to Console: II Phase N.O. of the Delegation of Asia since the previous triennium. After the fruitful sharing, we concluded the first day of our assembly with the Evening prayer prepared by the sisters from the community of Quezon City. The following day, we started with the Morning prayer prepared by the sisters from the Seongbukdong community and we had a “Conversion among Sisters” by reflecting together the document The poor and the earth cry out for Consolation, connecting our presence in different places and what is the invitation for all of us in this time of global crisis that arises in each country. In the afternoon, Sister Marta Garcia from Madrid helped us to reflect and enter more deeply into the understanding of the Social Dimension of the Charism through the testimony of our Mother foundress who lived among the poor and the sick and she explained to us the foundations of the document The poor and the earth cry out for Consolation that accompanied us during these past years. In the evening, we had the online Holy Eucharist Celebration to close the assembly prepared by some communities. All the members participated. After the Holy Mass, sisters in the different countries greeted each other and had a joyful celebration singing and dancing in their languages. We give thanks to our Lord for allowing us to share and guiding us to see the strength of Fraternity among us and showing us his way of walking together in the journey of spreading the seeds of Charism in our mission. Special thanks to the sisters of the Delegation Government for all their wonderful efforts and for all sisters who participated joyfully in our IV Assembly.  Thanks to All.
