“Do not go alone, go with the Lord”. Lee HERE the reflection made by our sister Yajaira Hernández FI based on one of the messages that Pope Francis left us at the opening of the Jubilee Year.
Germán López Parra, professor at the Virgen de la Paz school in Almería, under the title “150 years: Time, Love and Family under the Charism of Cándida María de Jesús” does not invite us to “build TOGETHER the Mission that Jesus has for the world. Each one from his reality and vocation, but taking steps in communion from the same charism “. Read their testimonial HERE.
On 8 May, at 12 a.m. (Rome), a Virtual Day of Mother Candida’s Family will take place under the slogan “A living charisma, a shared path”. Whether you are a Daughter of Jesus or layperson belonging to the Madre Candida groups, educational works, FASFI volunteers, and mission collaborators, this is for you.
Through the Zoom platform, and with the participation of the Superior General of the Daughters of Jesus, Graciela Francovig FI, we will meet for 2 hours to “see, meet, reflect and share together our dreams and future horizons”.
A moment to enjoy making us part of a big family!
DON’T FORGET TO REGISTER BEFORE MARCH 30. On the website of the 150s or by clicking HERE.
This month, in 12 months, 12 experiences, Patricia Helena Coimbra, FI(Brazil) helps us to reflect on the abnegation in Mother Candida under the title “Self-denial, mystical experience of gratuitousness and service”.
Mother Candida understands“self-denial as a path of self de-centeredness”, in which God has truly occupied the center of her person so that it would be possible to attain the fullness of his humanity”. And this means and is concrete in “letting God occupy all human existence, it remains a great challenge for us today”.
We had an interesting talk with Pilar Brufal, Daughter of Spanish Jesus who, about to leave for her new sending from Myanmar to Thailand, told us about the drama of human mobility and the need to respond to the cry of migrants and refugees.
You can listen again to the interview that Silvia Rozas, FI did.
