Monthly Message January 2019

 Mary and the Church are a Mother

 

Dear friends,on January 1 we celebrate the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.

Both Mary and the Church conceive and give birth at Christmas, by the grace of the Holy Spirit.

Through participation in the motherhood of the Blessed Virgin and of the Church, women who belong to a member organisation, by the grace of the Holy Spirit, are giving birth to a new period in the history of WUCWO.

But... how to give birth today? By applying the message of Pope Francis for the 2019 World Day of Peace. The Holy Father tells us that political responsibility does not only belong to the ones who govern, but also to each citizen.

Dear friends, our political commitment - which is one of the highest expressions of charity - should lead us to concern ourselves with the future of human life and the planet: with women and their children in gestation, with the youngest and most vulnerable members in the family.

I would like this to be part of our spirituality, of our daily prayer and of our commitment to action, just like the Holy Spirit inspired us in our resolutions of the General Assembly in Senegal.

And may the Word, which became flesh, dwell among us! May you have a Happy and Holy Year!
