Calm down. Less noise. A reduction in pollution. More time to listen one anther or to listen and watch. To compose too.

Tuesday. Reading, writing, learning

Many are at work in remote classes, via video or email addresses. Some others are on vacation.

Many are waiting to be reunited with their friends, their class, their teachers.

Some live a mini-school at home together with their parents. Others start writing or follow their personal book. Many also devour books and experience the pleasure of learning.

Many teachers remain connected with the students and also prepare new courses and continue with their own formation. Many are investing in new technologies.

A school without children is special. It is waiting, getting ready. It knows its life is slowing down.

Work is under way in several Schools and educational Centres whenever possible, depending on the situation.

Walking to the cross

Since the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic, the Congregation and especially the Province Nuestra Señora del Pilar has lost 7 Brothers of the communities of Bilbao, Berrio-Ochoa.

Bro Miguel-Ángel ROMÁN, died on 5 April in Bilbao.

The 6 Brothers of the community of the Infirmary of Bilbao, died between 22nd  and 30th  March.

We entrust them to the Virgin Mary and all the families and educational teams of La Mennais Schools in the world affected by this health crisis.

We also entrust all children exploited by work or victims of violence and war.

Friday. Meditating and praying

Many of us experience situations of suffering, illness, tension and fear.

Getting through the night.

We can be connected to a parish, a community, a diocese, a country by internet links or TV.

Saturday. Take care

A night to watch and wait for the dawn. Hope for the light. Entrust our loved ones and the intentions we receive.

At the community of Bedford, Quebec.

We have already taken action and we are continuing. Perhaps we were surprised to discover that we were able to pass on apprehensions in order to dare, to render service, to make ourselves close.

“Take care! This seems to be the common denominator of what we are experiencing today, writes Bro Hervé Zamor, Superior General in his letter to the Mennaisian Family of March 17. The medical community is dedicated and selfless in caring for all those affected by this pandemic. Parents care for their children with creativity and intuition.

Educators continue, when they can, to feed their students using new information and communication technologies. Our pastors, especially Pope Francis, strive to keep the flock close to it with tenderness and compassion.”

Sunday. Rise from the dead!

Nature testifies to these new colours already there, the spring which takes all its place.

What a joy to feel the resurrection and to share it!
