Desde Ti, solo desde Ti, renace la persona
que después trascenderá junto con otros...
For more than 11 years I have belonged to the community of families which is part of the Sacred Heart College of Mexico City, and five years ago I joined the team as a primary school teacher. Thus I have got to know many little girls; I’ve been teaching them for so long that I sometimes feel they are my daughters. But this week in the Family, God allowed me to share with my own family and other College families the experience of visiting the missions in the Mezquital Hidalgo Valley.
The best thing of each journey is getting to know what we don’t know, finding out what we haven’t yet experienced and learning from everything we see and hear. This is exactly what I experienced in November, when the Network invited me to the Latin American and the Caribbean forum that took place in Lima, Peru.
My name is Concepción Mateos Brito, but everyone calls me Conny. I’m a Religious of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I was born in Mexico City but I grew up in Monterrey. I come from a very ordinary family, I’m the fourth of six children and I had the opportunity to study in Catholic Schools up to University. I am passionate about basketball, have always loved films, am a tireless contemplator, an adventurer and a risk taker. I might say that I am one more person in the world, like other women who feel pride in their own identity and who share with others the dream of making a better world.
Life is a gift and a process, a fascinating opportunity to discover and develop the humanity that dwells within us, alive with the mystery of God, the God who is its source and its horizon, its Alpha and its Omega.
