EXPLAIN TO ME … HOW IS THIS, IF I DON’T KNOW IT…?

How can we define “COMmunity?” Within the normal, of everyday life, an unusual situation appeared, which made us tremble, makes us restless. We were locked in, nervous and scattered because of the Covid. With this situation, I turned my head towards my heart; I look for the light, an answer, in something that I can understand how fear can enter our apparently stable and organized life. We were united and

THE COVID ORDEAL

THE COVID ORDEAL

Having lived the Covid threats for several months with Spain as one of the third highest death reports in the world, was so alarming and left us almost paranoid at times.

THE BLOW OF COVID-19 TO OUR MISSION TODAY

Understanding the message of daily living, learning to love my vocation more
