In this issue we have tried to transmit what transpired in Guatemala at the 2017 Maryknoll Affiliate Conference (MAC)—Harmony, Unity, Love—all that Maryknoll is to us. We hope that the Pillars of the Affiliate Movement: Spirituality, Community, Global Vision, and Action, will be reinvigorated in you as you travel through this issue with the Affiliates who visited various mission sites of the Sisters, Fathers and Brothers, Lay Missioners, and Affiliates in Guatemala and El Salvador after the Conference. Mission has planted many seeds. So much is coming to fruition. So much remains to be done. We hope to share in a later issue our visits to the sites of the Salvadoran martyrs, recognizing what mission can demand.

Beyond the MAC, the Affiliates are building the future. Please read Patty Hinton’s Lenten article on page 11, which provides some concrete examples for Affiliate Action. We also urge you to review your experience of Maryknoll, plan the year in your chapters, and as David and Manny remind us, support the Maryknoll Affiliates financially. One of our newer Board members, Sr. Teruko Ito, MM, suggests, “…. tell our new Maryknoll story—how our lives were transformed through interconnectedness in the web of Maryknoll.” Share your story at This email address is being protected from spambots.

El Papa Francisco en varias ocasiones y con mucho entusiasmo nos ha invitado a unirnos en una “Revolución de la Ternura”. Pero, ¿En qué consiste esta Revolución de la Ternura? En este artículo se presentan algunos recursos que pueden permitirnos acercarnos a esta propuesta del Papa Francisco desde sus propias palabras. Los compartimos con la intención que pueda ser una fuente para reflexionar y responder, de forma individual y en comunidad, a esta propuesta del Papa Francisco.
