On November 26, 1984, Saint John Paul II wrote: “It is up to you, fathers and mothers, to collect that inheritance of Father José Manyanet, to help your children in the ways of life. This will be possible if, following the example of Joseph and Mary, they accompany their children with the affection with which they accompanied Jesus, and if they open spaces of freedom and creativity that allow them to fully mature. ”
This May 16 we celebrate the sixteenth anniversary of the moment when Saint John Paul II declared Father Manyanet “Holy”.
Although we are separated from the street, from the world and from regular daily life, it is a good time to be closer, closer together, more united in the love of Nazareth.
Let us live together the spirit of our home with our family, joining the Nazareth of heaven, as Saint Joseph Manyanet invites us.
These days we will work together with our parents and our children, a tool from the Nazareth workshop to prepare each other's hearts and light the fire of the home of Jesus, Mary and Joseph in the middle of our table, of our house, of our lives.
Every day, let us look for 10 minutes in the company of ours to visit the Holy Family spiritually.
This resource is taken from the REMEMBER blog (https://encarnacioncolomina.blogspot.com), a blog that wants to help those who live, from any vocational option, the spirituality of Nazareth.
Those of us who have the joy of continuing to weave the history that Saint José Manyanet started and which was joined by M. Encarnación Colomina, Co-founder who is now on the way to the altars, thus have the opportunity to learn about and deepen our history and charism to project and renew day by day our own identity.
