Update from Our Sisters in Venezuela

Medical Mission Sister Maigualida Riera reports from Venezuela that “the heart of life keeps beating in the midst of the tensions and uncertainties.”  Our Sisters and Associates continue to promote life and peace by supporting families to plant vegetable gardens, offering space for reflection and community prayer, painting murals of hope and respect, and guiding the youth through music, art and dance, giving them the opportunity to cleanse themselves of the recent violence, and to recover their own peace, joy and life.
