THE QUARANTINE: SPACE, TIME OF OPPORTUNITY, LISTENING TO GOD IN THE BROTHERS

This Quarantine helped us feel called to a team mission, coordinating with various Institutions: CEIL, Church (Bishop). Parishes, Vicarage, Mayor's Office, alumni, families, principals, teachers and others.

It allowed us to realize the dream that we set out to do when we made our life project in common: Listen, Clarify and Commit ourselves, bearing witness to the faith in works.

With these latent motions we wanted to capture it these two months and we organized as a community:

Liturgy, retreat. Prayer, cleaning, making food, shopping, the younger Sister offered herself for the care of the others. Also in the afternoons we take two hours for different activities and sharing: looking at our personal history through photographs, readings, baking, recreational games, movies, eve, community prayer.

To grow in the good being of the Congregation and work with others, service teams were built in the communities with volunteer people to prepare the solidarity lunches of the COMMON POTS.

Taking into account the risks, we abandoned ourselves in the blessed Hands of God and of Mary of Nazareth, we began to look, listen, the situation of many families who did not have for their daily subsistence, we saw that with the bag of some food it was not enough . We reconsidered the fact, we spoke with some families from different neighborhoods who accepted the proposal to make a common pot, we gave them the food that came from donations. Having Mother Candida as intercessor, according to her, she lived trusting always in Divine Providence.

It started with a call from CEIL coordinated by Sister Susana Guzmán who motivated solidarity to alumni, principals, teachers, families who wanted to send their contributions: food, money to buy what is necessary...

It was possible to coordinate with the neighborhoods: Isla del Palmar- Capilla Madre Cándida, Plan 4000- Barrio Tiluchi, San Pedro del Palmar. We highlight the availability of the Ladies: Elena Guarachi, Elisa Pinto, Teresa Veizaga and Milthon Alavi (who acted as driver to collect the donations) gave their unlimited time to carry out these activities.

Father Flavio Méndez worked coordinating as representative of the parish and the Vicaría San Pedro; Father Raúl, pastor of the Holy Cross, collaborated with many donations.

The Mayor's Office was present on several occasions with basic necessities.

Everything was managed by us, distributed according to needs. Around 800 dishes were prepared daily.

Thanks to the solidarity of so many people, many low-income families were fed for two months, who were infinitely grateful for their daily bread.

Our attitude was to be vigilant, alert, vigilant, so that nothing was missing.

The challenge was great, our strength, our faith, were put to the test, goodwill goes hand in hand with learning. We know that by

finishing the quarantine, inserting yourself into work and daily activities will be full of risks, possibly there will be more infected, more pain, more anxiety, but we cannot live forever locked up. We will have to learn to live with the virus. This time has been a trial. Now is to protect us, to take care of each other. Trusting that God your Mother and Mother Candida will protect us, we greet you with great affection from Santa Cruz.

QUIÉNES SOMOS

Somos un grupo de mujeres consagradas a Dios que nos hemos encontrado por caminos diversos. Vivimos en comunidad y discurrimos por 19 países, allí donde las necesidades de las personas son mayores.

HIJAS DE JESÚS

Queremos seguir a Jesús respondiendo así a una llamada que cambió nuestra vida y que ha ido trasformando nuestra manera de entender toda la realidad. Hoy, ser Hijas de Jesús es estar con Él, contemplar la vida con su mirada, intentar vivir como Él vivió, tratar a la gente como Él la trató, escuchar, perdonar y levantar a las personas como Él lo hizo, buscar con pasión, como Él, que se cumpla lo que Dios quiere para este mundo, su sueño sobre la humanidad. Nuestra familia religiosa se siente especialmente llamada a vivir en una actitud filial hacia Dios como Padre, caracterizada por la confianza, la seguridad en su amor incondicional, la alabanza. Ese rostro de Dios que contemplamos nos invita a la fraternidad con todos, la gratuidad, la sencillez, la alegría.

SANTA CÁNDIDA MARÍA DE JESÚS

Es nuestra fundadora, una mujer que se fió totalmente de Dios desde su sensibilidad hacia los más necesitados. Fue en Salamanca, el 8 de diciembre de 1871, cuando con otras cinco mujeres comenzó su aventura, sólo con la confianza que da el saber que lo que emprende es “lo que Dios quiere”. De esta manera y con el nombre de Cándida María de Jesús, esta mujer de poca cultura y pocos medios materiales fundó la Congregación de las Hijas de Jesús en una de las ciudades universitarias más importantes del siglo XIX, en Salamanca. La exclusión de la mujer y de las clases económicamente débiles de los ámbitos de la enseñanza movieron a la Madre Cándida a iniciar este camino.
