In Mexico City, Sister Elizabeth (Beti) Martinez, CDP, meets with the young adult Associates once a month. They share a meal and reflect upon a portion of a book called Fifteen Days With John Martin Moye. This book serves as a tool for these Associates to learn about the history, life and events of the founder of the Congregation of Divine Providence. By default, the group learns about the Sisters in México and compare and contrast their everyday lives and experiences with what they learn about Father John Martin Moye. A theme is chosen at the end of the meeting and a member of the group signs up to lead in the following month’s discussion based on selected theme.
Sister Beti also meets with a group that is learning about the charism and spirituality of the Congregation of Divine Providence. This is an interesting way to delve into the members’ lives and compare them to the charism and spirituality of the Sisters. Sister Beti appreciates all these experiences with the Associates because it challenges her to daily self-reflection that in turn deepens her spirituality and understanding of her call as a Sister of Divine Providence.
