This past 7th of November, at the community of Fuego Nuevo, we lovingly shared with the sisters of the Holy Family a small homage, a tribute to our CCVI sisters who are no longer with us, but their presence continues in our hearts, are an inspiration and a role model, as they left their mark for new generations.
We created a tree with strong roots, symbolizing our founders over these 150 years of presence in the world; among the branches we placed a heart and hands, representing a life for God and a heart for others.
Following the tradition of remembering our faithful departed, we put a few photographs on a table and those of us present placed them on the branches. We also scattered petals around the tree and mentioned a few of the actions they did while alive. In the meantime, we listened to the song Recuérdame from the movie Coco and watched a video recalling the history of the Congregation, ending with a gratitude prayer.
