The Congregation of Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Our Lady of Guadalupe have received from SS Pope Francis, the Papal Blessing and the Plenary Indulgence for the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Pontifical Approval of our Institute, through the Cardinal of Guadalajara, Jal., Mons. José Francisco Robles Ortega, a delegate of the Pope, who in turn had fit to assign the Assistant Bishop, Juan Humberto Gutierrez Valencia, as Episcopal Vicar for Consecrated Life.

 

This blessing took place at a Solemn Eucharist on November 29, 2014, in the Parish of Saints Philip and James, at the Delegation of Azcapotzalco, Mexico City. The eucharist was concelebrated by the Reverend Augustinian Fathers Ivan and Jesus, PR Missionaries of the Sacred Heart and Our Lady of Guadalupe, RP Salvador Villaruel, Superior General, R. P. Guadalupe Barragan, R. P. Guadalupe Estrada, and the pastor of this place, Pbro. José de Jesús Barragán.

Were present Sisters of the Congregation of several nearby communities to Mexico City, family, friends and many faithful.

In conclusion the Bishop urged us to renew the original zeal of the Congregation, be Missionaries, be there for others, reach others, be transparent signs of Christ, that all who get in contact with us  discover the love of God, all of this if we live as the Pope says, living our consecration with joy, because there is no greater testimony than a conscious life knowing that God love us, that we have God whatever happens in our life, and always live with a missionary spirit.

At the end of the celebration all present received the Papal Blessing, inviting us to gain the Plenary Indulgence by being prepared and with the right set of conditions for it.

After the celebration we share and tasted together a wonderful meal in the Azcapotzalco Elementary School.

Let us give thanks to the Heart of Jesus through the mediation of our Mother Mary of Guadalupe for this gift and make everything so that his Kingdom will continue spreading.
