CTC No. 56 (12.2020)

The current copy of cTc 56, will offer you a variety of topics, some of which include the “Nuestra Señora de Arantzazu” Federation (Basque Country) and “Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe y nuestro Padre San Francisco Federation” (Mexico), as well as the “San Damián” Monastery at Santa Lucia de la Sierra (Mexico).

In addition, you can rejoice with our sisters from Cantalapiedra (Spain) who celebrate their first century of presence, and their Affiliation with the Monastery of Allariz which is bringing new life.

You will be helped to be in tune with St. Clare’s love and compassion for the sick. How necessary it is that all of us become a sign and source of living hope for many as our sister and mother was, in the midst of a profound and pervasive pain – if not despair – that affects people all over the world, especially because of the pandemic.

Finally, you may be interested and inspired to read of the initiative launched by the Franciscan Family in Italy for a concrete way of “putting into practice” the Encyclical Laudato Si’.

A special mention of the articles in which some memories of Br. Thaddée Matura, OFM are shared. These articles are a drop in the ocean, for who is there who did not know of him or benefit from his clear testimony of the humility and meekness of Jesus? Who was not stimulated and encouraged by looking at his full commitment to the Gospel in the footsteps of Francis and Clare? A year after his death, we still like to offer opportunities to keep his memory and precious legacy alive.

A fraternal and warm welcome also from these pages to our brother Ignacio Ceja OFM, who has agreed to walk alongside us as General Delegate Pro Monialibus. We are happy to share with you, Br. Ignacio, our life and our prayer, grateful to the Father of mercies who shows us His care and solicitude through your evangelical commitment and fraternal communion. Thank you!

Happy reading!

Poor Clare Sisters of the Editorial Team
