Let us celebrate “Corpus Christi” as a living and consoling memory of God’s love. In the Eucharistic experience of Jesus, we find all the taste of his words, of his gestures, of his dependence, of his confidence and his search for the will of his Abba, the vehemence to live the Easter, the fragrance of his spirit.
To accept and eat the “bread of life” means to enter into communion with the heart of Christ: his choices, his feelings, his thoughts, his behaviors.
This eucharistic experience that we celebrate and receive in each Mass may help us to enter into the dynamism of love of Jesus and to become builders of unity and fraternity, bearers of forgiveness and reconciliation. To share our life in solidarity.
The Claretian Youth Vocation Ministry animated by the Claretian Missionaries and accompanied by the Claretian Missionaries has gathered around 45 young people from the Claretian Schools of Lima, Huancayo and Trujillo and the parishes of San Antonio María Claret and San Miguel Arcángel, who are in the process of preparation to receive the sacrament of confirmation. They participated in a retreat on the Forge from June 7 to 9 at the Claretian Seminary in Lima.
They were days of prayer, reflection, sharing and great joy. The young vineyard burned in charity sharing their experience as young people who today choose Christ in realities so different, but with a single feeling, a single charisma and the same desire ... "it burns where it passes and burns in charity ".

The Ashéninka Indians have opened the doors of their community, their culture and their lives. They were unforgettable days of exchange and mainly of learning for each Claretian.
The feeling of gratitude reigns in our hearts and the desire to return soon. Thank you for the experience, shared and learned.
With them and in their language every Claretian says strong and from his heart: PASONKI! (from Ashéninka language -THANK YOU).
We celebrate the Trinitarian mystery of our God, who, being one, is a communion of Persons. If reason refuses to understand it, the Spirit of the Father and the Son that has been given to us will "guide us to the full truth".
Jesus lived like no one else the closeness of the Father. With his words and actions he showed us the face of this God who is compassion, mercy, companionship, FAMILY.
In this convulsive TODAY of our history, he calls us to be his witnesses, experiencing his Love every day and living among us and with everyone as "one family and one heart".
Only in this way "your joy will be complete".
The sisters of the General Government wish you:
Joyful feast of the Trinity!
The National Youth Days in Cuba (JNJ, in Spanish), emerged as a need to give young people the opportunity to celebrate the faith in communion with the Church and in tune with the World Youth Days (WYD). The main drawback is that most of us can not participate in such appointments with the Pope that are held every three years, approximately.
In January 2019, the meeting of the world Catholic youth was in Panama with the WYD that dedicated a special look to the Mother of God and our mother, Mary. There we were more than 500 Cubans representing our country, including those who were in the pre-Claretian day: beautiful days full of experience of the Universal Church. The meeting will also be lived by the Cuban youth between the 1st and 4th August next in the Archdiocese of Santiago de Cuba, although with some variations in the program of the event, taking into account our realities.
The young people of the Claretian lay family of Santiago de Cuba, are immersed in the whole process of preparation of the event, organized in the different commissions. The mission, communication, formation will be some of the services we will offer from our own parishes, which will be catechetical centers. Also, we will receive in our homes some young people from different dioceses. We are sure that it will be an opportunity to renew our charisma and serve, providing the best we have. There is very little left for JNJ, let us ask for the intersection of San Antonio María Claret, one of the patron saints of the day; for us, the young Cubans, the preparation and the future fruits that this leaves in our society, which is in need of the joyful witness of the Christians.
