TO ALL THE PIOUS SCHOOLS
THE GRACE AND PEACE OF GOD, OUR FATHER
Dear brothers and sisters:
The Unions of General Superiors Men and Women have convened a SOLIDARITY AND PRAYER DAY, throughout the world, as a simple and humble contribution to the global struggle for the overcoming of the pandemic that we are experiencing.
I quote a short paragraph of the convocation of this Prayer and Solidarity Day:
March 22: Solidarity and Prayer Day
This is the time when each of us is called to respond to the global crisis of coronavirus in solidarity with others, especially the most vulnerable and those most at risk. It is time to follow the guidelines of the World Health Organization and our respective governments.
It is a special time for prayer and to bear witness, through concrete and conscious solidarity, of our responsibility to care for one another. This extraordinary time offers space for acts of generosity and expressions of gratitude especially to those on the front lines caring for the sick and those who are engaged in research projects, in the search for remedies, and those who work in the public services. No matter who they are or where they are, they should know that they are in the thoughts and prayers of religious people around the world.
Therefore, we invite all the Orders and Congregations members of UISG and USG to celebrate a SOLIDARITY AND PRAYER DAY around the world next Sunday, March 22, especially for all those who have been affected.
I invite you to carry out this Prayer and Solidarity Day in all the Communities and Piarist Presences, in any way that you consider possible and convenient. The whole Consecrated Life will be in common prayer on this day.
In communion of prayers, I send you a fraternal embrace.
Fr. Francesc Mulet. Sch. P.
