International women of the Heart

Fifteen years ago I celebrated International Women's Day as part of an incredibly international community of RSCJ. There were twelve of us together in Rome, preparing for our perpetual vows: add the formation team and translator and we were fifteen in all, from fourteen different countries and every continent. Between us we had grown up speaking at least eight first languages and as many if not more second and third ones, and brought with us a diversity of cultures and mentalities, of spiritualities and national identities.
