The Well is a symbol for Community.
It is often located at the center of the Community where everyone has access. From the Well, the community draws water, which sustains its life. In the olden days, the Well represented all the social resources of the community that were necessary to endure and thrive.
This well for us represents the word of God, which invites us to listen to Jesus speaking, through events, formators, facilitators and many other people we encounter. It represents all that we are going to live during this period of this juniorate; all that allows us to rediscover and nurture the source of life within us. This well challenges us to live the values of openness (receiving and giving) to life during and after our juniorate in companionship and collaboration in many different ways.
Symbolizes the unity and support we desire to live as a group, during this time and after our juniorate.
The clay pot:
It represents the beauty and fragility within each one of us. In our own beauty and fragility, we want to give life and let ourselves be moulded into the clay pot to be at the service of all.
when the well is dry, then we know the worth of water. We need water to quench our thirsty and this water is the Word of God that strengthens us and becomes the source of our passion for the journey.
The open hands:
on our journey, we want to learn to let go and let come new ways of looking at and receiving life.
Like The woman at the well, we want at the end of this juniorate to have rediscovered the inner being, the “I am”. We will have experienced the beauty of attaining inner freedom that will allow us to give new meaning to our life.
