During these past few months characterized by the COVID-19 lockdown, the FSPs of India have been very active. Besides promoting their publications online and via Amazon, they have been carrying out many initiatives on their PaulinesIndia YouTube Channel. These activities include:
– messages of hope to netizens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jmZndfRP-4 ;
– prayers in local languages: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9hmpgbKiW0;
– helping people deal with addictions through a series of conferences on the subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOcJezdtN9A.
Many members of the circumscription are preparing WhatsApp poster-messages in English and Hindi (the official language of India), while others, trained in counseling, health and theology, are sharing the fruit of their studies by means of classes organized for the benefit of the sisters of our communities.
And a special joy in this time: Sr Joeyanna, fsp, an expert in communications, was invited by Cardinal Oswald Gracias, Archbishop of Mumbai, to speak on Social Media Addiction and Faith in God in the Archdiocesan Online Faith Formation Program (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ACCmYudfuo).
This was a great honor since Sr. Joeyanna is the first woman religious ever to be invited to participate in this program as a guest speaker.
Un grande privilegio per sr Joeyanna perché rappresenta la prima donna e religiosa a cui è stato chiesto questo contributo.
Numerose le sorelle impegnate attivamente a inviare messaggi su WhatsApp in inglese e hindi (la lingua ufficiale dell’India), e offrire consulenze sull’utilizzo dei social network.
