MY EXPERIENCE IN THE CENTRAL AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF SPIRITUALITY SOCIETY OF JESUS

The Central American Institute of Spirituality (CEFAS in Spanish) has been doing this work for the last 25 years. It began by Father Carlos Cabarrus.  CEFAS develops an integral program in three areas: human, psychological and spiritual. It has a very complete team of professional experts who guide personal and group process of the participants. It is very difficult to talk about my experience lived in PAF…I will try to

FROM THE ITINERACY OF RIVERS TO THE ITINERACY OF ACTIVITIES RELATED TO OUR EVANGELIZING MISSION

Our itinerant community, composed by four sisters and two Dominican monks, has the responsibility of encouraging the life of the missions Kirigueti and Timpia and their respective communities and just like other communities, we have been affected by the pandemic. As every year before we start with our missionary work, we got ready to plan. We like that our planning states day, month, hour, activities and person in charge. Everything

Dear Sisters

In the first place, I am thankful to the General Council for trusting me and give me the opportunity of sharing these days with the novice. From some time ago, I feel a special and urgent call: answering with the minister of healing, combining Spirituality and psychology; heal wounds and

INTUITIONS

INTUITIONS

I was thinking to write about my experience lived during my first formation (juniorate, postulancy, novitiate and new generations) that the Ecuadorian religious conference offers (CER in Spanish) to the consecrated life, but my intuition took me somewhere else.   “Right there, that small woman, that is me. In the silence intimacy, where stillness embraces me, I recreated myself. The absence of noise was my nest. I spin across myself,

HOLIDAYS IN QUARENTINE

HOLIDAYS IN QUARENTINE

I am on Holidays in my giant Democratic Republic of the Congo, where -as in any other country- it was ordered, on March 10th, a national emergency state, immovability and closed borders. All the activities are still suspended, and people continue their social lockdown. I think that -for a reason that only God knows- few days after I left Ecuador, the first Covid-19 was reported in Ecuador. If this would

Unforgettable holidays

I am Hilda, I work in Quito for the last 7 years and I came to Peru during the first days of March to spend my holidays and to do some paperwork, something that I was able to do just before the government declared national immobility due to Covid-19. I am in Chiclayo in my sister’s house. From here I extend my fraternal and solidary greeting to all and each

“Only a woman, only she can reach another woman’s heart…”

“Only a woman, only she can reach another woman’s heart…”

I have always been moved by the expression of our founding Father: “Only a woman, only she can reach another woman’s heart…” My Dear Sisters: I want to share with you how this expression of our founding Father is heard by myself since I was in my internship and how it has marked my pastoral life with women in different countries… Sisters, without taking out the first sense of these

“We are all in the same storm, but not in the same boat”

Dear sisters, I was asked to write my experience while living in Ecuador and that is what I am going to do. On March 11th, 2020, I arrived to Quito, Ecuador’s capital, from Chile, following my missionary dream that was born when I was a novice in Lima in the years 1990 and 1991. In this missionary experience, my assigned community is Quininde, located in Esmeralda province, Ecuador. However, by

Education within reach of countryside youth

Education within reach of countryside youth

I committed myself to accompany girls and teenagers in the “Proyecto Promocion de la mujer” (Women’s promotion project) of the Missionary Sisters of the Rosary in the boarding school “Santa Rosa” of San Ignacio, Cajamarca, because we value countryside girls’ education since it is very important for their development, especially considering the dangers that they face.   I arrived to the boarding school on March 10th, a week before the
