Pope Francis in his post synodal exhortation letter " Chritus Vivit" says that the youth are the now of God, the protagonist of the mission in whom Christ is truly alive. In response to the message of our holy father by journeying with the youth in the spirit of the Gospel, the Claretian sisters organized an 2 days activity with the youth with the theme of the year of the youth of the Philippines "Beloved, Gifted and Empowered". They were blessed to invite one of its speaker from Catholic Media Communication network Fr. FRANCIS LUCAS , on the role of the youth in Media communication. We culminated the month of Mary with a marian dance done by our sister in the night of May 31, and on june was filled team building activities, drawing therapy and ended with a Eucharistic celebration. The youth in their evaluation seek another chance for a silent recollection, personal accompaniment and talks about our faith. To God be the glory.
GRATEFUL to the Lord for the gift of the vocation received: "to follow Jesus in the Claretian charism" is what we want to celebrate this day, singing along with others our Magnificat, like Mary in the visit to her cousin Elizabeth.
May our being new women in practice, servants of the "Word", open to all without distinction - in a special way to the most needy - to live and proclaim with joy the Gospel in a shared mission, be a sign of hope and joy for the world.
HAPPY CLARETIAN VOCATION DAY!
Today, 28th May 2019, our community in Rome, General Curia, has had the joy of sharing food and after-dinner with our brothers Juan José Chaparro - Bishop of the Diocese of San Carlos de Bariloche (Argentina) and Gonzalo Fernández, general consultant of spirituality.
In a climate of simplicity, fraternity and joy we talked about ecclesial and social realities, pastoral challenges, ongoing projects as Claretian Family and mission offerings in the Argentine Pampa.
We feel called to collaborate with God's dream of becoming a world of brothers, where there are no barriers, marginalization or human discards; but people built internally by the Spirit as dear Sons.
Who knows if, in a not too distant day, we will be able to respond to the invitation of this Pastor-brother, as Claretian missionaries sisters or in a shared project of charismatic families. Invitations to prophecy are not lacking on the part of the Church...
On May 25, at the Generalate of the De La Salle Christian Brothers, a new formation meeting for the journey of Charismatic Families was held, deepening on the theme of the year: "Creative fidelity to serve prophetically.
The objectives of the meeting were: to know more about charismatic families, to raise awareness of communion, formation and collaboration.
The greatest challenge, which Sr. Micheline Kenda SFB presented in her presentation, on "lights, shadows and perspectives of walking as charismatic families", was the ability to share the charism, as a common heritage, allowing it to question the cultures that express it according to their own modalities.
Throughout the day there were moments to share experiences with other charismatic families and in this way to grow and consolidate in the path we are taking as a Claretian family.
Our sister Priscilla, Prefect General of Apostolic Mission, participated in the meeting.
On May 24, Priscilla, Prefect General of Apostolic Mission, accompanied by the Sisters of the Community of Segrate (Milan) met with the members of the NGO Mission Onlus, in the Parish of San Ambrogio ad Fontes of the Claretian Fathers in Segrate. An opportunity to thank and encourage commitment to the mission, not only those who already collaborate with the Onlus, but also those who with interest wanted to participate: some parishioners and the members of the missionary group of our Santa Rita nursery school.
At the meeting, led by Priscilla, after a first moment of prayer around the text of Mt 25, 34-40, the mission and vision of our Congregation, committed to the world, passionate for Christ and for humanity, was presented. The meeting continued with the presentation of the Project of Pachacamac (Peru) in the house "Hogar Santa Faustina" to which Mission Onlus has contributed in the year 2018 - 2019 for food expenses. It was placed in the social context and, above all, the stories of the children who live there were touched by hands. There was great emotion and commitment.
In addition, the promotion of women in their formation as a process of dignification and transformation of society was motivated in a special way, presenting the Project "SUSTAINING CULTURE" 3 scholarships for 3 girls from the Philippines, supported in 2018-2019 always by the NGOs Mission Onlus.
The meeting was a great opportunity to know, to thank and to continue committing oneself to a shared mission, according to the possibilities of each one, to "do so much good", as well as "Church which goes forth", in favor of our minor and poorest brothers.
