Find here the September Edito by Marianne de Boisredon, head of Fondacio France : "Brothers become friends and fellow travelers who help us move forward on the path to a brighter life."
September opens us up to starting over and gaining new momentum! The beginning of the school year is a time that invites many of us to organize ourselves in a certain way, and to make choices that will shape our entire year until next summer.
At Fondacio, it is a joy to organize back-to-school days in the regions to renew ties with the people in the network and to invite any new person who would like to come and discover the proposals of our movement. You can find all the richness of the 2021-2022 program in the new catalog and of course on this website.
This new school year, which begins with a few uncertainties, will require us all to be anchored and confident. As Christians, we are called to be bearers of life. To do this, we must first of all embody the "good news"! "The philosopher Nietzsche said, "I will believe in God when Christians have resurrected faces. At Fondacio, we cultivate simple and authentic joy and seek to offer a positive and joyful face of the Church. Our vocation expresses our desire to be a leaven of hope and awakener of humanity. Fondacio will be present with other movements in 4 cities of the next Mission Congress on the weekend of October 1, 2 and 3, 2021: Strasbourg, Lyon, Toulouse and Rennes!
We will also be attentive to what will emerge from the synod on synodality and Church governance launched by Pope Francis. We can all contribute to a different future for the Church, and in society, by being beings of dialogue.
Once again this year, Fondacio will be close to you to embark and accompany you on your journey of life. Our community is one and diverse, offering multiple places to recharge your batteries with others, in order to awaken the best in everyone!
To define your major appointments for the year, do not hesitate to participate in one of the "Personal Training Plan" workshops organized in the regions.
I wish you a very good start to the new year and also a wonderful year, filled with discoveries and advances for you and your loved ones. May it be for you the opportunity to take regular times of inner listening to make choices inspired by the Holy Spirit! The Spirit is blowing, let's follow it!
Marianne de Boisredon,
Head of Fondacio in France
