Day of the Claretian Constitutions

3 July 2020


Happy day of the Constitutions! They contain in themselves an inspiration, that of the Gospel and of the charism and a process of more than 160 years of dialogue with the signs of the times.

Almost 100 years ago, after the unification of the Institute, the Superior General Maria Luisa Lloret, in 1922 communicated the approval of the Constitutions with these words. “The constitutions … must consolidate the work of our union and must produce within the Institute a great force of fecundity and expansion.”

A beautiful phrase, written so many years ago, when the memory of those who knew the Mother Foundress was still alive, it has not lost its relevance. We wish each other a happy day and a happy mission to continue consolidating our union and take care of its fruitfulness.

During these days, the text “María Antonia París, friend and companion in the journey” is being distributed.
