The Annals of Saint Anne
Once upon a time ... 150 years ago!
Who among us did not hear the words, “Once upon a time ...” when we were young? These evocative words invite us to dream, to imagine. They set the tone and start a story so well. They transport us elsewhere and invite us to discover, to escape. For La Revue Sainte Anne (the French version of the Annals of Saint Anne), these words, although simple and modest, recall the very beginning of a wonderful adventure. Born from the desire to make the Shrine of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré known and to present Good Saint Anne, the story continues 150 years later!
Pope Francis has called the whole Church to enter into the preparatory phase of the next Synod of Bishops. He invites all to gather in small groups to share stories, to listen to others and, in doing so, to discern where the Spirit is leading the Church. He is convinced that this way of coming to a decision is essential for the future of the Church, because he deeply believes in the statement of the Second Vatican Council concerning the sensus fidei or “sense of the faith” that is shared by all the baptized. “Through it,” the Council teaches, “the people of God adheres unwaveringly to the faith given once and for all to the saints, penetrates it more deeply with right thinking, and applies it more fully in its life.” (Lumen Gentium, 12)
