Happy feast day of St Candida Mª de Jesús!

After many interesting Did you know... the day has come to celebrate the LIFE of our Foundress. 110 years have passed since that "I die in peace and quiet...". Peaceful because all the moments of her life had been for God. And they were for God, not only because of her own grace, but also because she lived in depth what the Determination of GC XVIII asks of the Daughters of Jesus, because she followed Jesus Christ very closely.

When we follow Jesus Christ very closely, all other things are resituated.

When we follow Jesus Christ closely, the impossible becomes possible.

When we follow Jesus Christ closely, we put our security not in ourselves or in the means, but in God.

When we follow Jesus Christ closely, we seem to go against the world.

When we follow Jesus Christ too closely, there is a continuous disproportion between our own strength and God's invitations.

When we follow Jesus Christ too closely, those who seem to be there move away and the human help becomes something else.

When we follow Jesus Christ very closely, there is no lack of sorrow, sadness, misunderstandings...

When we follow Jesus Christ closely, our interior is calm even if life seems to be on the warpath.

When we follow Jesus Christ closely, we face death and dying with serenity because they are only a way of being closer to the Lord.

When we follow Jesus Christ closely, we never go alone because we are accompanied by a legion of witnesses who show us by their lives that we have not made a mistake.

When we follow Jesus Christ closely, we find the personal path to which he calls us and the necessary strength to follow him.

When we follow Jesus Christ very closely...

Mother Candida, bless us with the crucifix from the balcony of heaven so that we may be very holy, so that we may be true Daughters of Jesus. Bless the whole Family, who are grateful with us for your life, and lead us to Jesus.
