Dear brothers and sisters,
A few weeks ago I told you that the Holy Father, Pope Francis, authorized the papal decree authorizing the beatification of Concepción Cabrera de Armida (Conchita), foundress of the Missionaries of the Holy Spirit, the Covenant of Love and the Apostleship of the Cross. In that article I mentioned that beatification is the step before the canonization. I also told you that in the near future we would have the date that the Pope was going to give us for this important event.
I inform you that we have the date for this important event. As you can see, Conchita’s life continues to be a source of inspira-tion for those who seek holiness. The fact that the church recognizes Conchita as a model of holiness is something that lls me with pride as her spiritual son. With this joy I share with you that the beatification of Conchita Cabrera will take place on May 4, 2019 in Mexico City for those of you who wish to attend can begin their preparations.
May God continue to awaken in us the desire for holiness through the example of Conchita Cabrera. I invite you to take an interest in knowing more about Conchita’s life, and hopefully you can attend this great event.
Rev. Manuel Rosiles, MSpS
