¡Entrad en nuestro nuevo portal!
Estamos felices de poder abrir la puerta y ofrecer un encuentro de FAMILIA.
Enter into our new site! We are very happy to open our "home" and offer a moment of encounter of our FAMILY.
In this very day (17th of January), memorial of the Passover of our Foundress Maria Antonia Paris, we recall her words:
“The aim and goal of this community is to announce the Gospel of the Lord, and fulfill the evangelical councils, and in imitation of the Apostles, work until death in proclaiming the Good News of the Lord to the whole creation. (cf. Const. 3)
“The evangelical poverty is the basis and foundation of this new community and the master-key to introduce into the heart of men the accomplishment of the Gospel” (Cf. CC, n. 84 p. 407)
“My daughters let us love one another, as daughters we are of love. Love your sisters and you will find not defects in them” (cf. CC n. 26 p. 458)
“Nothing is difficult for the humble of heart and nothing rough for their hands; so let humility be and meekness be among you” (cf. CC n, 20 p. 414).
Lord, grant us the Grace to follow your footprints, inspired by this legacy of Maria Antonia, she lived in practice till the end of her live.
Hapy day, Claretian Missionaries and all our collaborators and friends!

The end of the year was marked by the celebration of three general Assemblies in different Entities: in USA, East Europe and Spain Sur (the last one in the half of the governance’s term). The evaluation of the life and mission was a center of the reflection, prayer and study, in the context of the Restructuring process.
It is a habitual space to also vision out the paths to follow in the coming three years. These are mainly: balanced spirituality and mission, relationships, openness to the restructuring process.

Best wishes for this time of celebrating Christmas ... to the whole Claretian Family, Friends and collaborators!
Recent event of handing over and receiveng the Cross of the Company of Mary in Tarragona and Reus shows us and reminds us that the best gift for our life is Christ: "so God has loved the world, that He has given the only Son..." (Jn 3:16).
In a very simple yet deep encounters, first in the community of the Company of Mary in Tarragona, and second in the chapel of our community of Reus, with sisters from Tremp, Barcelona, Zaragoza and Argentina, in the presence of Maria Soledad Galeron, we had received the Crucifix before the which Antonia Paris used to pray long times during her fomation time in the Convent of Tarragona. This Cross was was her the place where intercede for the Church and offer herself to God. Receiveing it in our midst we are grateful and deeply moved.
Our desire is - as Maria Soledad has written - "That the presence of the Crucifix among us we may convert it in an instrument to renew, revitalize, strengthen our response today to "give up our life" for the Gospel, for the renewal of the Church". The recent messages of the Pope Francis make this call urgent for us, claretians.

From 26 - 31 December the Province Spain South, the delegations of USA and East Europe hold their Assemblies. Let us keep them Company in prayer, in this very intensive time of the Restructuring process.
The Team for the study of the Structures, formed by Mª Soledad Galerón, Cristina Ruberte, Mónica Baigorria, Lucyna Lejba, Pilar Sebastiá and Margarita Bordallo, with the help of Fr Teodoro Bahillo, cmf have worked from 3 to 12 of December in Madrid.
The fruit of the reflection is summarized in a"draft" that includes the voices of all claretian sisters (through the survey and contributions at continental meetigns) responding to the task that the XVI General Chapter entrusted to all to renew our life, mission and structures to better respond to the urgent agendas of the Church and the world of today. This work will be presented in the assembly of major Superiors and delegates coming April.

Thank to the great generosity of the Company of Mary, the Crucifix of the "initial vision" that has been in the choir of the Church of the Convent in Tarragona, has been donated to our Congregation.
In this Cross we can see the origins and the essence of our identity. Maria Antonia Antonia has been praying before It and offering herself for the restauration of the Church. The Cross - where she has learned everything - is the sourse of wisdom for our life and mission.
We are grateful to the Company of Mary in Spain for this precious gift in this time of Advent. For us it has a special meaning in our process of discernment within the project of Restructuration of the Congregation.

Mary Immaculate, you are the sign on our path… your life in poverty, obedience and chastity, totally dedicated to the mission of your Son … is our model.
Mary Immaculate … the mystery that impels us to work against all kind of evil, open to the joy and hope.
Mary Immaculate … loving you we love the Lord and collaborate in your maternity over the People of God. (Constitutions of the Congregation 9).
From the origins of the Congregation, Mary Immaculate is our Patroness. The foundation of the Institute, in the same year of the proclamation of the Dogma, was considered by our Founders as providential sign for our mission of hope and renewal of the Church.
May Mother Mary, help us to walk in the faith and go out in readiness to assist those who are in need, collaborating in the New World.
