Vivre le pardon, la réconciliation et la guérison. Favoriser le dialogue dans nos relations


Sœur Judith Dossa rjm
Libreville ce 8 Mai 2018
Délégation d’Afrique
Nos objectifs  au début de la session :
Comment mieux vivre soit même et cohabiter avec les autres ?
Dans un climat de dialogue et réconciliation, comment arriver à dénouer les conflits par la communication non violente (cnv) ? D’abord être conscient de ce que je vis ou de ce qui me bloque (comment je me sens ?) Ensuite savoir que les mots sont des fenêtres ou des murs et arriver à formuler des demandes en tenant compte de mes besoins.  
En rapport avec la 1ère et la 3ème priorité, la délégation organise cette session  en vue de prendre la décision de favoriser le dialogue dans nos relations et d’éviter la violence dans les paroles, les gestes et les actions. Pour cela, nous avons reçus dans chaque maison de la délégation la sœur Covadonga Orejas, une carmélite de la charité de Vedrouna (CCV) qui, depuis le 19 Février date de son arrivée à Lagos jusqu’au 11 Mars date de son départ de Libreville  a parcouru plusieurs maison et pays de la délégation pour des sessions de formation. Présentement les communautés de la guinée sont en attente de la recevoir.
Compte tenu de la richesse des expériences partagées, des exercices pratiques effectués, nous vous partageons quelques fruits recueillis, quelques découvertes faites à conserver et traduire en habitudes de vie.

LA COMMUNICATION NON VIOLENTE (ou cnv)

C’est renouer avec nous même comme avec les autres. Il en existe quatre composantes :

  1.  Observation d’une situation 
  2. Exprimer nos sentiments
  3. Identifier mes besoins et les exprimer
  4. Formuler ma demande (à demander pour satisfaire nos besoins) en distinguant sentiment et besoin.




Les sentiments font parties de la vie et d’un jour à l’autre, mes sentiments changent. L’amour est un besoin et non un sentiment. Il faut vivre dans le présent d’où la nécessité d’être réaliste. Comment je me sens avec ma façon de communiquer avec les autres ?

Je ne peux dire : « la sœur m’énerve … » mais plutôt : « Je m’énerve quand je vois… »
Un autre exemple  de la manière d’entrée en communication avec les autres :
Quand je vois le chauffeur aller vite je me sens en insécurité parce que j’ai besoin de vivre encore et j’aimerais qu’il aille plus lentement. Ainsi formulée, nous pouvons être bien reçu dans nos propos sans culpabiliser ni le chauffeur ni les autres mais en assumant la responsabilité de nos sentiments.
A travers quelques exercices pratiques, nous avons appris à utiliser les mots de façon juste pour exprimer ce que nous avons au dedans de nous dans une communication saine. Cela nous a conduits à vérifier notre qualité d’écoute. Comment j’écoute les autres s’exprimer avec sincérité, comment j’écoute avec empathie.
Comment entrons nous en communication avec les autres ? Quand je vois que tu fais cela, je me sens de cette manière si car j’ai besoin de X. j’aimerais que tu fasses telle action (exprimée sous forme d’une requête, d’un langage positif)… Par des exercices pratiques nous étions amenés à identifier et nommer clairement notre sentiment du moment, à présenter nos besoins.
Soyons plus positif et cela facilitera la communication. Plus nous serons précises dans ce que nous disons et plus la communication passera. Si nous sommes négatifs dans nos propos, il est plus sûr que nous serons mal accueillis.
Un point importante sur la dignité humaine fut rappelé : « la valeur de la personne est la même… » (D’après  le philosophe KANT) Pour dire que l’être humain a une valeur en lui-même. Personne ne peut t’enlever ta dignité, ni te l’octroyer. Elle est là. Fait intrinsèque.
On peut te piétiner, te maltraiter mais on n’enlève pas ta dignité. Le grand Gandhi l’a dit : « on peut me maltraiter, mais personne ne peut m’enlever ma dignité… » Alors si ta dignité n’est pas respectée, je comprends que tu te sentes triste pour cela ou blessé mais, on n’enlève pas ta dignité.

Une découverte : « Quand j’étais jeune je voulais tout changer. Quand je suis au milieu de l’âge je constate que je ne peux pas tout changer. Et quand je suis vieux et plus âgée je comprends que c’est moi seulement que je peux changer pour que le monde change.»
Pour nous aider à entrer dans l’apprentissage des limites de la condition humaine. Nous ne sommes pas parfaits, les autres non plus. Quand nous comprenons nos limites, nous saurons accepter les limites des autres. Le monde parfait n’existe pas. Il est mieux d’exprimer ses besoins après les avoir identifiés au lieu de les masquer et entrer en conflits avec les autres. 
En résumé:
  • Quand je vois et j’écoute …
  • Je me sens…
  • J’aimerais…
  • Je demande…

En s’exprimant ainsi, nous entrons dans cette dynamique de la communication non violente.
Ce qui nous reste et que nous aimerions conserver 
réviser notre manière de communiquer sans culpabiliser les autres, rester conscient de nos propres limites et de nos besoins qu’il nous faut exprimer avec sérénité.  ET ça c’est super! Merci !

Drop and Shop, from Ireland


Three first year students, Katelin Conway, Chelsea Laing and Kellie Hastings, at Jesus and Mary secondary school, Enniscrone, Ireland were involved in a ‘Drop and Shop’ campaign, on the 21st of April.
This was an all-Ireland campaign organised by ‘Friends Of The Earth’ to encourage shops and suppliers to use less plastic packaging. Our students encouraged costumers to drop their plastic in a bin provided and sign a petition.
The costumers of our three local supermarkets were very positive and supportive.
The local Enniscrone Tidy Towns Committee also helped.

Cruzando Fronteras - Crossing Frontiers - Connecting Humanity

Sr. Rosie Nicholson RJM , USA Province, shares with us her experience...

This is a summary of a very inspiring week, April 8 - 14, 2018 in San Antonio and McAllen, Texas participating in Cruzando Fronteras - Crossing Frontiers - Connecting Humanity.  The Popular Education Network of the RSCJ's (Religious of the Sacred Heart of Jesus) in collaboration with ARISE (A Resource in Serving Equality) and MACC (Mexican American Catholic College) provided us with several speakers and experiences to deepen our knowledge of the current realities of migration, immigration and human trafficking across country borders throughout our world as well as within US state borders.  Our very full days began at 8:30 AM (at least for those of us who don't eat breakfast) and continued to about 8:30 PM when we arrived back at our base locations.  

We began in San Antonio at MACC. The 'ice breaker' where we met one another in a circle and had to introduce our new acquaintance to the group was a challenging  experience as a few people knew only English, some of us could share in English and Spanish to varying degrees, and some knew only Spanish. As we shared we each took up a different colored ribbon which at the completion of our introductions formed a web connecting all of us.  We certainly got a taste of how an immigrant feels upon entering a new environment, struggling with language barriers, being a minority yet in the end feeling our connectedness through this visible image of the colorful web we had formed in the process. At all locations we were provided with headsets for translations throughout each presentation.  It is difficult to say just how many of us participated as when we were at both locations many of the ARISE members were with us either in person or via live video from McAllen as well as other people from parts of South America.  They also had an opportunity to share in our discussions.  I had the opportunity to meet Nilza, RJM from Boliva.
Thanks be to God she was very patient with my Spanish. Although she is not involved with immigrants she is very much aware of the situations near the border with Chili and other existing problems.
Although we began with topics on Integration & Interculturality, Contextualization of Migration in the US which included an analysis of the national context of migration and its political, economic, social and educational implications, government's migration policies we soon got to experience the local context of life near the border through the eyes of actual migrants and the four ARISE groups working with the people to understand their needs, finding agencies to assist with the current needs and empowering the people to become actively involved in leadership roles resolving issues and needs and even in creating centers and participating in community building. 
The energy, determination, joy and love with which ARISE embraces their community of immigrants as well as each of us was in itself a moving and hope-filled experience.  We had the opportunity to visit each of their four centers, learn of their ways of first listening to the needs of the people and building community, meet individuals in their colonias and encounter local agencies who provide services. 
Our days were mixed with presentations, small group discussions, relaxed encounters during meals, visits to the colonias and moments for reflections.  

One very moving experience was when we drove to the border and walked a mile to the border fence, only a mile short of the Rio Grand itself on a hot and dusty trail littered with empty water bottles, pieces of clothing and bags.  We took time to share along the way as well as time of prayerful silence for those who are desperate enough to walk this way in hopes of a better life and especially for those who perished seeking peace, justice and freedom.  Two sisters picked up two ladders that migrants brought across the river to enable them to climb over the border fence and were now just lying next to the fence. The sisters placed them in the form of a cross. A very powerful image!  Some of these images and experiences resonated with what I have encountered at our Mexican/San Diego area border with the Border Angels and Interfaith groups as well as my moments in the desert seeing what immigrants face there when coyotes abandon them.

Having this experience during the Easter season added to its personal impact on me.  For me, this was a moment of experiencing and being Eucharist to one another and embracing our local and global communities.  Celebrating our different cultures, going beyond our languages, appreciating our many colors, looking out for one another, praying as one, breaking bread together, seeing and coming to know one another with the eyes of the heart were priceless gifts for which I am very grateful.  


The photo of fresh dog prints in the moist dirt gave us chills as we know the Border Patrol
and their dog were looking for migrants very recently.
I hope to become more involved in this ministry with immigrants... Thank you for inviting me to participate in this conference.  I hope to use what I have experienced in my ministry.  God bless each of you very specially.
Gratefully,
Rosie, rjm

The women from different villages like Gothada, Lasudra, Anjesar, Bhadarva, Muval, Zaveripur and other villages were gathered in our convent school compound in the afternoon. Sr.Nirmala Paul – the principal of the Jesus and Mary Girls’ High school Vadodara was the chief guest.

The programme began with the prayer dance prepared by the women of Gothada village. The small skit was presented by the women of Lasundra village on the saving of the girl child in the family. Which was followed by the kawali giving the message that everyone will have their turn to become what the others are so not to give trouble to the daughters. The women of Bhadarva village did the garba giving importance to women. Sr.Nirmala , the chief guest gave a short speech highlighting the importance of the women in the family and in the society. Without a woman the family in incomplete. It a woman to cares for the children and sees all the other need of the family. It is she who keeps the family together.

Visit to The Convent of Jesus and Mary - Sangamner Mission School


Human values are fast deteriorating. Love, empathy, kindness etc are giving way to other priorities. In order to instill awareness and enrich values in our children, St. Joseph High School, Pashan, takes the  initiative to take students to visit missionary schools and orphanages every year. 
During one such drive the students and teachers of our school visited the Sangamner Mission School, on the 17th of February 2018. 
Our main aim was to bring about an awareness in our students, and to reach out to the less privileged. We wanted our children to realize that they can be happy and content in any situation and that they should see how these children manage to cope with their lives and excel in their studies at the same time.
The first hand experience gave our students:
  1. A ‘personal touch’ to their feelings. 
  2. Built an intention to ‘WANT’ to reach out to the needy. 
  3. A ‘Learning to share ‘, besides sponsoring some poor children to get a good education.
The first thing we noticed was the simplicity of their wants - i.e. The need for love.
Our children interacted with these children by listening to them, sharing their experiences, hearing hymns and songs prepared by them especially for us. Such talent! 
The students of St. Joseph High School Pashan, sang and danced for them and spent memorable moments together.
Later the children played games and then had a meal together too.
What our children learnt that day was that they should be grateful to their parents and thankful to God for all the things they are blessed with.
The inner strength in the face of adversity was something that served as a take away for our children.
Despite their condition, students thrive when given an opportunity.
Our children need ‘Something’ or ‘Someone’ to help them become achievers. 
A ‘Good Education’ is the ‘Something’ and ‘WE’ inculcating ‘Good Values’ are the ‘Someone’!
