“People think that as communicators, we must be the most confident people in the world. I do not easily feel that way. Creating content involves a lot of experimenting and it’s fun, but there is also a lot of doubt as to whether it will work. Knowing what has worked for others and having their support is really empowering for me.”
This is the expression of satisfaction from Vanessa Gorra, one of the two representatives of the Society’s Asia-Pacific Conference, at the end of a meeting held at the Curia from May 20 to 24. She participated, with her colleague Ria Limjap, in an intensive week of reflection, prayer, workshops and sharing between the communications officers of the six Conferences of the Society and the Curia’s communications team.
Like all the groups that meet at the “headquarters” in Rome, the agenda for the week was full. However, in the spirit that drives all the Society’s activities, it was not only a question of “doing” but also of giving ourselves the chance to “be” together. The first day was devoted to interpersonal knowledge and reflection in the context of conversations marked by spiritual conversation and prayer.
