On August 15, 1851, M. Antonia París and her four companions made ” a vow of crossing the seas and go to any part of the world without dividing the group… offering to suffer any kind of trial for love of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Aut.121). With this vow, María Antonia set out to strengthen the vocation of the young women through union and obedience, while assuring them that she would never abandon them. It can be said that this is the charismatic foundation of the Apostolic Institute of the Immaculate Conception (that New Order which the Lord asked of her in the Initial Experience). LET US RENEW THE COMMITMENT TO UNITY IN THE SMALL THINGS OF EVERYDAY LIFE.
HAPPY FEAST OF THE ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY!
