Mother General's Message

Smiley face

Today, the human race is involved in a new stage of history. Profound and rapid changes are spreading around the whole world. Triggered by the intelligence and creative energies of man, these changes recoil upon him, upon his decisions and desires, and upon his manner of thinking and acting. Hence it is timely and relevant to think of a true cultural and social transformation in the society.
