Vulnerabilities are opportunities: President of International Union of Superior Generals


The International Union of Superior Generals hosted its 22nd Plenary Assembly. During the Assembly, the union elected a new president, Sr. Nadia Coppa of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ. 

SR. NADIA COPPA
President of UISG
I was really surprised. It's an opportunity for me to grow, I think, to grow in the sense of belonging of the consecrated life, a sense of belonging also to my congregation because, if I am open to really walk with others, with other congregation, it is important that I know who I am.

One of the focuses of the Assembly was encouraging the sisters to embrace their vulnerabilities and challenges. 

 SR. NADIA COPPA
President of UISG
We as consecrated women, we have to help one another to feel that vulnerabilities, fragilities are really opportunities to express the love of God for humanity in every time, in every moment of our story.

Sr. Nadia believes embracing vulnerabilities means welcoming humanity's wounds in each particular moment of time. 

 SR. NADIA COPPA
President of UISG
We walk together with the same dignity, the same wisdom. We have to be open to welcome the wisdom of each person because it's really the voice of God.

For Sr. Nadia, recognizing that each person faces challenges breaks down prejudices and creates bonds that transcends borders.
