Sister Hala: It is our turn to emulate the model of Blessed Charles de Foucauld

By Munir Bayouk/ en.abouna.org

Marking the soon-to-be canonization of Blessed Charles de Foucauld, Director of the Catholic Center for Studies and Media Fr. Dr. Rif’at Bader conducted an interview on Thursday, May 28, with Sister Hala Yasou’ of the Little Sisters of Jesus which is a Catholic community of religious sisters inspired by the life and writings of Charles de Foucauld, and founded by Little Sister Magdeleine of Jesus (Madeleine Hutin).

In the interview, Sister Hala expresses great joy for the announcement made by His Holiness Pope Francis marking the imminent canonization of Blessed Charles de Foucauld.

“This is a great joy for the Church in particular as we consider Charles de Foucauld’s contribution to the world through his life and spirituality. He is the messenger of comprehensive spirituality as he used to say, ‘I am a brother to every human being regardless of one’s religion and color’,’’ she said.

Sister Hala said that “it is our turn to emulate the model of Blessed Charles de Foucauld and maintain fraternity towards every person in the world no matter how different we could be. We are currently experiencing a huge crisis and we have to think of the entire world and of humans no matter how close they are to us.”

She referred to the spirituality experienced by Blessed Charles de Foucauld who wanted to follow the model of Lord Jesus Christ and live in Nazareth with the simple people and convey the message of fraternity.

Addressing the youths, Sister Hala said that we earnestly need to experience brotherhood more that any time through which we can reflect positively on others in daily life.

Referring to the Marian Month, Sister Hala said, “We pray every day for those suffering from Corona virus as well as for the doctors and nurses, the recovered patients and the people who have suffered a loss, hospital chaplains, and pharmacists so that Virgin Mary would be with us in this difficult time as we need a loving mother who cares for every person.
