Rome (Italy). On 17 July 2021, in the Generalate of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians in Rome, the meeting of Mother General M. Yvonne Reungoat and the sisters of the Council took place with the Sector collaborators and Mother’s secretaries.

“It is a time for gratitude … in celebrating together the joy of the encounter that forms and transforms and to give thanks to God for the beauty of what, in recent years, we have received, shared, given, and witnessed in the service of our common mission in the FMA Institute.


A treasure in clay pots … in sharing the gifts that we have given and that have enriched the mission entrusted to us by God. Being together is always an opportunity to promote and animate the common mission I entrust them to you and Da mihi animas through research, study, discernment, and accompaniment in the perspective of the gradualness of the processes and evangelical realism. The reflection and experience shared over 7 years are a sign of renewal, of a synodal journey, of responsibility, and interconnection.

Everything is grace… in listening to the word of Mother: “Thank you for seeking together the will of God in discernment, for the collaborative participation that has helped us to better grasp the challenges and expectations of the future. Thank you for the love for the FMA Institute and the sense of belonging that is manifested in communion, in co-responsibility for the common mission, and in the sharing of one’s gifts. Thank you for the work, sometimes tiring, for the spirit of resilience in the search for the good with an eye open to the new horizons of the mission”.

Let’s continue the journey together… accompanied by Mary, we are going to celebrate GC XXIV: Do whatever He tells you! The new wine regenerated by the faith, by the Word, and by the solicitude of Jesus will allow us to continue to be generative, to give vigor to the Salesian charism, to live the contemporaneity with audacity, and to project ourselves with hope towards a new future.

The meeting ended with a moment of conviviality lived in fraternity and joy.
