We continue on our path towards December 8, the date on which the closing of the Jubilee Year will take place. October brings us the joy in M. Cándida, the International Meeting of Educators of the schools of M. Cándida, the projects “Get excited: believe and create” and “The path of M. Candida” that are advancing … It’s a month not to be missed. Here’s the summary. You already know, the last is at the top of everything.
THE WORK OF THE DAUGHTERS OF JESUS IN BOLIVIA
on Thursday, 28 October, at 7.30 p.m.
Mª Antonieta Hernández Porcel (Tita) is a Daughter of Jesus in Bolivia. She met the Congregation working in a school of Fe y Alegría in Potosí and, for 41 years, she belongs to it. She has been a Novice Mistress, has participated in three General Congregations and lives her being the Daughter of Jesus completely happy. Now, together with twenty-five sisters scattered throughout Bolivian territory, Tita continues her mission and shares with the poor the wealth of Jesus. See the INTERVIEW.
VÍDEO CONMEMORATIVO DE LA CANONIZACIÓN DE LA MADRE CÁNDIDA
Within the framework of the Jubilee Year, the province of Indico-Pacific has prepared a video in which it remembers, celebrates, and believes in the life of Saint Candida and its fruits. In a virtual tour of her life and that October 17, 2010, when Benedict XVI proclaimed her a saint, she invites us to let ourselves be contaminated, to listen to the personal call that the Lord makes to us.
It is not a video to get through fast, as we are used to. Sit down, treat yourself for some time, take it and let it move you. Let yourself be reached by the invitation of the Province of Indico-Pacific to Remember – Celebrate – Believe. Happy anniversary of the canonization of St. Candida!

400 EDUCATORS ONLINE TO ANSWER THE CALL OF GC XVIII
For three hours, we met nearly 400 educators from all over the world. Graciela, our Superior General, invited us to enter the meeting remembering what our first reaction was when we heard the Call of the GC XVII to make a network of educators and listening to Jesus who sends us to the mission in the hand of Mary: “Do what he tells you”.
The presentations of Juan Antonio Ojeda, FSC, “The educational challenges of the current world”, and Mª Teresa Pinto, FI, “The school of M. Cándida”, enlightened the reflection and the search for the answer that we are called to give at this moment.
You can read the chronicles on the 150 website or on the international website.
THE MEETING THE EDUCATORS WILL HAVE TWO HINGES:
THE EDUCATIONAL CHALLENGES OF OUR WORLD AND THE SCHOOL OF MOTHER CANDIDA
JOY IN THE LIFE OF OUR MOTHER CANDIDA
From the Philippines, Leoly M. Quitorio FI invites us, with her article, to make a deep reflection on the joy in the life of M. Candida. She tells us, “Despite the countless tribulations in her life, joy and gratitude filled the soul of St. Candida.” A joy that comes from her deep union with God in the person of Jesus. How is your joy? Read the article HERE or enter the website of the #150FI by clicking on the image.
