Sr. Rosa Amelia Canicoba, Daughter of Wisdom, Peru
Offering young people to learn about spirituality can be quite a challenge! In Peru, some Sisters from the Congregation of the Daughters of Wisdom formed a group of young adults called “Juventud Sabiduría” or “Youth for Wisdom”. This group is composed of former students already familiar with the spirit of the Founders, Saint Louis Marie de Montfort and Blessed Marie Louise of Jesus.
The “Our Lady of Wisdom” College in Ñaña, Pérou, already planted the seed in the hearts of many generations of young women that could serve society by a deeper study of our spirituality. This is why, the Sisters began a community of “Juventud Sabiduría” or the young face of the Friends of Wisdom.
Former students of “Our Lady of Wisdom” College
“YOUTH FOR WISDOM” group is mostly composed of former students who are now at university or working as young professional in or around Lima. It is a mixed group comprising also members who benefited from the presence of the Daughters of Wisdom in their towns or communities. These young adults opted to continue to drink at the fountain of our spirituality, accompanied by the Sisters of the Community of Ñaña and Jesús María, Lima.
What do they do ?
Youth for Wisdom reveal the love of Jesus, Incarnate Wisdom, through various concrete actions organized around Ñaña or further. Here are examples:
Youth for Wisdom desire to delve deeper in the love and presence of the Lord in everyday life, in times of reflection and sharing around the table of our community after each meeting. Also, Wisdom is present in the celebrations organized by the Daughters of Wisdom on significant days for the Congregation and during activities of vocation awareness.
The youth group greatly appreciated the words of encouragement that Sr. Louise Madore, Superior General, addressed to them during her visit in February. It is important to be convinced, she said, that "every person has something special to bring to this world, something unique and irreplaceable. "
For the members of Youth of Wisdom, to know they are loved, called and sent by Jesus, Wisdom, is reason enough to be happy and to radiate and announce true Wisdom in words and in actions. May Mary, Our Lady of Wisdom, accompany them in this concrete service, joyful and courageous on behalf of others.
