The mission has been, is, and will be an unforgettable and a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me. It is a joy and plenitude feeling that it cannot be compared to any other luxury that we have in our everyday life. The mission involves many pleasant experiences despite the challenges that are also part of the missionary life. The missionary experience is expressed as a life novelty in all the dimensions ofRead More...Read more

MOTHER ASCENCION NICOL GOÑI
A woman who left behind her land and securities
“I felt no great enthusiasm…but an irresistible strength that led me to offer myself…”
Ascencion Nicol was forty-five years old when she embraced the missionary challenge proposed by Monsignor Zubieta of going to the Peruvian jungle and being able to contribute her gifts and extensive experience in favor of the education and formation of girls and women from the jungle. The context she will face would be totally different to the school of Huesca. However, her deep fidelity, her restless and attentive spirit to what god wanted for her pushed her to offer her life to the cause of the kingdom.
MONSIGNOR RAMON ZUBIETA
Missionary in the Philippines
“Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!”
Ramon Zubieta, who was eager to preach, lived his first missionary experience in the Philippines. He is an open missionary, who combines faith and human promotion, wishes to embody himself and to know the culture of the communities which he must confront. He learns their languages and customs and spends a lot of time speaking to them. He promotes health, education and improvement in farming.
Due to the independency movements within the region, he was taking as prisoner along with other companions suffering from starvation and torture, but finally he is released.
“The soul that it offers itself as a victim is as if it was telling god: Here I am to comply your will; here I am to suffer, to love, to immolate myself, to keep quiet, to not wish anything that is out of you”
Mother Ascencion Nicol Goñi
