A BREATH OF FRESH AIR
Sr. Marie-Adeline DW
During the summer fresh air can be scarce. However, there can be many ways to get a new breath of fresh air. For the Daughters of Wisdom of Italy, youth and novelty has brought this breath of fresh air! Indeed, the community has welcomed a young Croatian woman in formation to become a religious, a Daughter of Wisdom. Marija Loncar, a second year novice is now living her community and apostolic experience with the Sisters in Ravenna, Italy.
After one year at the international English language novitiate in the Philippines, Marija brings new life and energy to the community. After a visit to her family in Croatia and renewing a few documents, the community was happy to welcome her. Marija is sharing the community and apostolic life of the Sisters for five months. On the day of the celebration of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, June 8, the Sisters received this wonderful gift from the Virgin.
Parish activities are part of the apostolic mission of the Daughters of Wisdom in Ravenna. Marija is involved in the summer activities with children and youth (Grest , campiscuola , WYD with the diocese…). She is gradually forging good relations with the volunteers, the immigrants, persons under house arrest and people in need who are close to us.
The parishioners are interested and a bit surprised by the arrival of Marija. She witnesses to a new manner of considering religious life in general and the life of the Daughters of Wisdom in particular.
The presence of Marija gives us a breath of new and fresh air. We wish her a fruitful experience both personal and apostolic. Happy journeying on the way to Wisdom!
