Mariacristina Cella Mocellin, FMA Past Pupil, is Venerable

Mariacristina Cella Mocellin, FMA Past Pupil, is Venerable 06 September 2021 (ANS – Vatican City) – On 30 August 2021, Pope Francis recognized the heroic virtues of the Servant of God Mariacristina Cella Mocellin, a lay faithful and mother of a family born on 18 August  1969, in Monza (Italy). From 1982 to 1987, Mariacristina attended the Linguistic High School at  Mary Help of Christians School of Cusano Milanino (MI), then run by the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians of the Lombard Province of the Holy Family (ILO). During her school years, Mariacristina manifests herself as a serene and positive girl, open to everyone. In the classroom she is a strong but discreet presence. A friend of hers says of her, “Cheerful and playful, she was determined, she did not compromise on her values. She was a recognized authority among us, but always ready to serve.” The imprint of the Salesian charism is present in her commitment as animator of the oratory and catechist at “Holy Family” Parish of Cinisello Balsamo where she lived, so much so that in her Diary she notes some of Don Bosco’s principles on education.

Vatican – Worse than the crisis, the drama of wasting it

(ANS – Vatican City) – When the pandemic will finally be behind the whole world, there will be a need for a world of work that is different from what it was before, that knows how to start from the discarded, those set aside, left behind, and that knows how to value and appreciate the dimension of caring. These two ideas, taken from the message that Pope Francis sent to the 109th International Labor Conference, are analyzed by Sister Alessandra Smerilli, religious of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, undersecretary for faith and development to the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development and the coordinator of the Vatican’s COVID-19 commission’s economic task force. Below, a summary of her reflection. Worse than a crisis like the one we are experiencing, there is only the drama of wasting it. The virus, like a scourge, has affected everyone without distinction. Its effects, however, have spread in different ways, with especially serious consequences for some.

Moreover, the priority is clear: to restart by focusing on the...
