On the weekend of February 8 to 10, the sisters from Poland, Italy and different parts of Spain, who make up the Pastoral Team of the province, have met in the Provincial Curia of Europe (Madrid) to discern and to work on the different lines of action that will be followed in the coming years. They have been days to share, to live together to clarify and above all "to walk together composing ... a new symphony …”
In the "heart of Islam", touching the reality of the United Arab Emirates, the Church “going forth”, which is not afraid to meet the world, has embraced a new opportunity for the interreligious dialogue.
THE DAY February 5th, 2019 marks an extraordinary event around the world:
Pope Francis and the Grand Imam Al-Azhar, Ahmad Al-Tayyeb have signed the document on "HUMAN FRATERNITY FOR WORLD PEACE AND LIVING TOGETHER".
In the name of God, In the name of innocent human; in the name of the poor, the destitute, the marginalized; in the name of orphans, widows, refugees, and those exiled from their homes and their countries; in the name of all victims of wars, persecution, and injustice; in the name of human fraternity, in the name of justice and mercy, In the name of all persons of good... Al-Azhar al-Sharif and the Muslims of the East and West, together with the Catholic Church and the Catholics of the East and West, declare the implementation of the culture of dialogue as the path; mutual cooperation as the code of conduct; reciprocal understanding as the method and criterion.
From the religious and moral responsibility, with this document we ask ourselves and the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work tirelessly to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.
Having followed the event with lots of interest, we join the same commitment.
On February 2, our community of Calandrelli, in a climate of joy and gratitude for the gift of the Claretian vocation, haves experienced the change of responsibility in the animation of the community – curia -, that wants to beating the life of the whole congregation. Following a space of Marian prayer, in which we have joined the Yes of Mary renewing our religious profession, we have welcomed the new superior of the community - Lucyna and the sisters of the council, Cristina, Lolys and Frigi.
An immense Thank to Gladys and to the sisters (Cristina y Ana Maria) who up to this moment have rendered the animation service of the community, for having done it with fraternity, availability and delicacy. Since helping the mission of the general government, they contribute to the whole congregation.
For Gladys, in a special way we wish that the new mission entrusted her can be carried out with the strength and passion that spring from the daily encounter with the Lord.
The Lord bless our fraternity!
On the day of the feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the temple, presented as a light that illuminates all humanity, we celebrate the day of the consecrated life.
Happy day to each one! And may our consecrated life be happy, made of days and hours given, throughout the year, to God and his Kingdom. Special congratulations to those who have renewed their vows today!
United with the whole Church, we give thanks for this GREAT GIFT!
