We receive with joy the letter from our Superior General inviting us to live the celebration of the 150 years of life of the Congregation, to celebrate them as a year of grace. 

It will begin on December 8, 2020 and end on December 8, 2021 under the motto "Un Carisma Vivo, Camino Compartido."

 

This year that is given to us is a great opportunity to allow the Lord to work our conversion, we ask for the grace to be renewed by his Spirit, as we are told by Sr. Graciela.

As a form of prayer, this threshes out  the wishes of the Daughters of Jesus for this year of preparation: 

We want to say thanks for what we have received, discover the fecundity of these 150 and deepen our identity.

We want to get closer to Mother Candida, to our origins, return to her writings and essential expressions, to the starting point of living them.

 We want it to be a universal celebration that reaches the whole apostolic body and all places.

We want it to be a celebration where everyone has a place and is part of it.

 It is important to discover in this celebration in this time of the pandemic, a God Who is present, His message and His way, and seek and find together what we can respond to in this context, from what our Foundress has left us

 We want to celebrate, thank, make a feast… encourage each other, spread the charism, grow in union with all of us who wish to live the Gospel according to the gift received, experience together, once again, that "the longer the distance that separates us, the greater the union of hearts "

and so we will continue to be faithful to this legacy received as a gift for others.

FOR NOW, WE RESERVE THE FOLLOWING DATES:

December 7: Vigil with Youth from Madrid, in virtual connection with all parts of the world. From 21 to 23 hours from Europe.

 December 8: At 6:00 p.m., Opening Eucharist in Salamanca, in the Chapel of the Colegio Mayor Montellano, with the presence of Mr. Bishop Carlos López.

We can follow all the celebrations from our YouTube channel, Hijas de Jesús en el mundo. Haven't you subscribed yet? Do it and do not miss anything that happens this year.
