IUSG: First Meeting on Communicating Religious Life


Communicating religious life, particularly women’s religious life, in order to strengthen networking and collaboration among various institutes and congregations, witness to the Gospel and build bridges: this is the goal of the first international meeting organized by the International Union of Superiors General (IUSG) to be held in November 2023.

A webinar was held to present the event, which aims to make religious understand how to witness to the life experiences of the Gospel and create bridges between people. “Words,” said Sr. Nadia Coppa, president of the IUSG, “and also the images and signs of religious communication, have the power to foster encounters and inclusion and, if chosen carefully, can generate peace, overcome misunderstandings, heal memories and promote change.” At the center of the message, however, must be the human person, even and especially in the digital world. Digital tools, in fact, are a great gift from God but also a great responsibility. They can broaden horizons, inflame hearts and illuminate paths not only virtually but above all concretely, from the perspective of life as a journey.
