Pope to Paulines: let yourself be challenged by reality, and approach it with compassion
This is how the nuns of the Institute of the Daughters of St. Paul greeted the pope.
They are celebrating their General Chapter in Rome. Better known as the Paulines, they have many bookstores, publishing houses and production companies throughout the world.
Their charm is finding original methods to evangelize through media.
The pope asked them to be bold.
Let yourselves be challenged by the reality in which we live, let yourselves be disturbed by reality. Constantly seek ways of proximity, keeping in your hearts the ability to feel compassion for the many needs that surround us.
The daughters of St. Paul, or the “communicators of the Gospel,” are in 52 countries. They currently have 2,046 sisters and another 376 in the process of formation.
Their new Superior General, Sr. Anna Caiazza, greeted the pope.
