Rencontre  community animators: living joy in community

Live the JOY in community and until the end! This is the theme that brought us together at the Mother House on July 28 and 29, 2021.

Even before these days began, we were filled with joy   just to find ourselves after these two years of separation imposed by health measures. Two days animated by a young woman, who helped us to look at the different ingredients so that community joy could grow.

Time of prayer, time of personal reflection and pooling set us on the road in the face of a double question:

What are our nuggets, that is to say what generates joy, pleasure?

What are our pebbles that generate discomfort, difficulty?


Two witnesses, a beneficiary and the secretary general of the Colocation Lazare shared with us by videoconference their experience of life at the roommate with its joys, its requirements, its landmarks and its principles:

A fun evening of cutting, coloring and gluing gave free rein to everyone's imagination and creativity to express a conception of joy!

The meaning of the work from doing to being was the subject of intense sharing with reference to excerpts from the book “A life to bring oneself into the world” by Marie de Hennezel.

…in life there is what we do and there is what we are!

Dear blue family

In the joy of the celebration of the feast of our holy foundress, we come to share with the whole blue family, the event on the “mission and charism of Saint Emilie de Villeneuve in the context of a pandemic”.


This will be through the “connecting networks” program of the FTD Publisher of the Marist Brothers: They offered this media space to Marcia EDVIRGES. Since we are in times of pandemic, the objective of their program is to invite Congregations whose founders lived this experience in their time.


With the approval of the provincial teams of Mato Grosso and São Paulo, Marcia and Janete Maria joined them in organizing a live from their platform.


However, this show is different from the lives we have already organized. The Marists have their own format to which we must adjust if we want to take advantage of this space to talk about Saint Emilia and make our charism known. Many other Congregations have already successfully participated in this program.


Angelina Bridi and Janete Maria da Silva, will intervene at this live with other guests. Although being transmitted in Portuguese, we want to share this joy with all our blue family, because we believe that it will be a special moment. For those who can, we send you here some indications to register


Date: 02/10/202  -  Timetable: 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. – Brasília time – 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Rome

"Eucharistic celebration and blessing of the altarpiece of Sainte Emilie."

moment of joy to our lady of la platé 
this August 15, 2021

How joyful was Eve when you ascended,
Higher than all the angels, higher than the clouds.
And what is our joy, sweet Virgin Mary
To contemplate in You the promise of life.   (Song: Crowned with stars)

What is our joy?

  It is part of our Congregational history! This August 15, the church of Notre Dame de la Platé, closed for 27 years, is exceptionally open to the public, for the time of a solemn mass. A little before 11 a.m. the bells ring out in the neighborhood, probably like December 8, 1836? They invite us to come together. The church quickly filled up. Places are reserved for city officials and blue sisters! Monsignor Jean Legrez presides over the celebration.

During his homily he specifies that the church of La Platé is the only Marian place in Castres and as soon as it is officially open, he wishes that people come there to invoke Mary. Hence the choice of the feast of the Assumption to mark on the one hand the inauguration of the building and on the other hand to inaugurate the altarpiece of Saint Jeanne Emilie. The Sisters present are invited to come face to face with the altarpiece with the Bishop and the priests to participate closely in the discovery of the work and its blessing. After much applause, the square of the church once again becomes the meeting place; the joy of reunion mixes with the resounding bells.

"Around the fire we learn to be brothers and sisters."

Unheard of for us: an online Council of Congregation! What changes this pandemic period has imposed on us! What creativity! It   was scheduled for this meeting to be held in Barcelona in 2020, but with the pandemic crisis that has ravaged the world, we had to wait for another opportunity. It didn't go as planned in attendance, but now a bit more accustomed to the technological resources of video conferencing, it was possible to bring the charismatic family together.eblue through the Zoom platform, with the transmission structure provided by the UISG - International Union of Superiors General - and the technical support of Anna and Francesco.

God Alone...many questions. It is with this song composed for the 6th anniversary of the canonization that the presentation ended. O JOAN EMILIE WHAT JOY, ALLELUIA. (Regina tune…par Eliane-Claire).
