“Just when the caterpillar thought that the world was over, it became a butterfly.”

Dominican Sisters of Peace Mission Experience by Sister Mary Voung, OP

I use this phrase in my email signature because in my own work as an occupational therapist, I get to be part of such amazing transformations every day. As a Dominican Sister of Peace, I use my skills and God’s help to help people regain mobility, build their strength, and reach for their full potential.

The Challenge and Joy of Shared Life

Gloria Marquez Morte

Misionera Dominica del Rosario

“If you want to follow Me, deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Me…”

Indeed, to offer one´s life is to render it available to what lies ahead of our “Yes” to the Lord and the sisters who live with us.

It was a long trip to Peru, South America it took around 32 hours travel for me to reach my new missionary assignment. But, before going to Peru, I knew that there´ll be an intensive 15-day leadership training, I was to attend for 2 consecutive summer (month of February) and my Castellano was not really that good. I do understand what they are talking about but it was difficult for me to communicate given my new learning of the language . . .  each time I spoke, I was not sure if they understood me at all.

I felt that something burned inside me, that I needed to share.

Dimitri Díaz.

Mission Promoter. International Dominican Youth Movement

When I was 14, there were things I could not understand… why youth would leave a halfway reality, with no commitment, and avoiding injustice.

Since these early stages I seeked that the youth would change this perspective of life… their life. That was my mission, or at least I interpreted it that way.

For seven years, Dominican friars of my parish shared with me their wisdom and experience. And through that I also fell in love with Jesus.

I felt that something burned inside me, that I needed to share. I began to teach confirmation catechism and, with that, I met not only apathic youth towards injustice, corruption, but also mad towards Jesus. I can’t generalize, of course, but I was worried (and will always be) for those youths that didn’t find a friend in Jesus… their friend.
