The International Union of Superior Generals will meet in Rome May 7-11, bringing together 900 superior generals from 75 countries to discuss the needs of the Church and world.
According to President of the Union Sister Maureen Cusick, the meeting is intended to “focus on the situations in the world that challenge religious women to raise their voice and their prophetic light.”
These are situations in which “there is death, war, hunger, injustice. Whether it be in society or in the Church, religious women must be determined to bring light to the darkness. In order to do so, religious women must have a prophetic spirit, in order to carry the precise message of the Gospel and not only a general social effort.”
The International Union of Superior Generals is an institution approved by the Holy See. Some 1,900 women’s religious congregations are members, representing more than 750,000 sisters from around the world.
