MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS FOR LENT 2017
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Lent is a new beginning, a path leading to the certain goal of Easter, Christ’s victory over death. This season urgently calls us to conversion.
Now, I’m Xaverian Missionary Sister FOREVER. The story of my vocation is really interesting; it is completely God’s project. Let me share it with you!
“Easter is not only once a year, but every day because the Lord passes and stops at the door of our heart to talk and to listen to us. Let us not go Him without draw from the font of His Merciful Kindness, without offer to Him the most loved things, without donate to Him the most intimate affections of our heart.
I’m Dora, a Brazilian Xaverian Missionary of Mary. I was born in a little Amazon town in Brazil named Abaetetuba, which is close to the Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by rivers, and where there are only two seasons: six months of rainy days and six months of sunny days.
Those who have been close witnesses of the events that took place on September 7th and 8th of the year 2014, have a deep wound that is difficult to heal.
From the first dramatic moments after the execution of our Sisters we have all shared the sensation that the evil had taken possession of the spirits of those who projected and perpetrated this terrible crime.

At Kamenge in Burundi, A Memorial Day.
What will he have understood about my God?
I 'm still asking myself this again after four months of conversation with a public transport driver.
