Opening of a New Community – Province of Mexico-Cuba
Praised forever be Jesus and Mary
TO ALL WHO FEEL THAT THE CHARISM OF JESUS AND MARY
IS ALIVE IN AND CLOSE TO THEIR LIFE
Mexico, D.F. January 14, 2016.
We think that this news can rejoice you:
With hope we share with you that two days ago, on January 12, we opened a new community of Jesus and Mary in Amacuzac, a town in the State of Morelos, Diocese of Cuernavaca.
Amacuzac, from náhuatl Amaticoztitlán that means place where the “yellow amates” (kind of a fig tree) are abundant (a medicinal tree), is a municipality of the State of Morelos that is adjacent on the south and south-east with the State of Guerrero, on the way to Iguala. It is about two hours and a half from Mexico, D.F., and less than an hour’s distance from Cuernavaca.
The Bishop Don Ramón Castro Castro, has invited us to this town where the Sisters will share their faith in different pastoral tasks, having as their principal service “the pastoral ministry of listening, of conversation and of consolation”, as well as the School of Pardon and Reconciliation, EsPeRe, among others.
We are grateful for the enthusiasm and generosity of the four Sisters that will take part of this community, the thrust and the hope of the Province of Mexico-Cuba that grows “in age”, and that with this foundation, desires to continue growing also in love and service to the poorest.
We ask you to pray for us, that we allow ourselves to be accompanied by these people, that we learn from them, the way how God reveals to his good, welcoming people, who desire to live in peace.
That this new presence of Jesus and Mary be, like the “yellow amates” of Amacuzac, remedy, balm that heals wounds, tonic that helps to remember that in this year of Mercy, we are all called to have “life in abundance” cf. Jn. 10, 10.
That the new foundation in Amacuzac be a simple way to begin to welcome the 200 years of Jesus and Mary in the world (October 5, 2018), a way of thanking in serving, for so much good received… EE. 233.
With love and hope,
JM Province Mexico-Cuba
