New issue of Studia Claretiana

Studia Claretiana 2020

Volume XXXV of “Studia Claretiana – 2020” has just come out. It offers the main events and contributions of 2020 on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the death of Saint Anthony Maria Claret, of the arrival of the Missionaries to America – specifically to Chile – and the foundation in Algiers. Not everything that was done and said is here, but the most significant is. Other references can be found in “Annales Congregationis” and in other publications. We have divided the volume in a different way from the way used in previous years. The division is marked according to the various thematic blocks or moments of celebration. (more…)

Happy Easter 2021!

“Catecismo de la Doctrina Cristiana”(1860)

Happy Easter!

We wish everyone the joy of the risen Lord using a print drawn by Fr. Claret. The symbolisms used in it are very interesting because it leaves a valuable message for all of us. The grouping of historical and symbolic elements that bring about a detailed pictorial presentation of the mystery of the resurrection. The main and central element is the risen Lord, under his foot, death figured as a corpse. Below is the open tomb and right next to it is the scene of the resurrection of the Holy Fathers who were awaiting the resurrection of the entire human race from Adam and Eve. “In you our fathers trusted, and you delivered them” (Ps 21,5).

Saint Joseph: Co-patron of the Congregation

“Camino recto y seguro para llegar al Cielo”, (1862)

“They have to join in spirit with the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph in the house of Nazareth, Bethlehem and in their travels, with interior recollection, doing all things with the greatest perfection, even the smallest and most insignificant, always contemplating this Holy Family…” (Letter of Fr. Claret to M. Antonia París, December 10, 1867.)

On Saint Joseph’s Day we are invited to focus our gaze on the one to whom God “entrusted the custody of his most precious treasures.” In this way, following the example of Saint Anthony Mary Claret, we confidently invoke his patronage and keep in mind his humble way of serving and collaborating in the economy of salvation.

Father Claret, your anxieties…


P. Claret, tus ansias misioneras
dieron prisa de Dios a tu pisada.
El te puso su miel en la mirada
y colocó en tu pecho sus hogueras.
Oleaje feroz de humanas fieras
te lanzaba constante dentellada,
pero tú, con tu Dios, como si nada
traspasaste los fuertes y fronteras.
Hoy te dice, Claret, mi voz sencilla
que tu voz de divino pregonero
se expande sin cesar de orilla a orilla.
Que tu nombre conoce el mundo entero, (more…)

April 19

“As regards the foundation of Jaca, I do not know what to tell you, I always give advice with fear concerning the things you ask me about the Congregation because I remember the caution with which saint Ignatius acted with regard to the Company by not interfering with those who were governing. I have no doubt you must have spoken with the consultors (…) I will pray to God and the Most Holy Virgin that you may make the right decision”.

 (Carta al P. José Xifré, 11 julio 1867, en EC II, p. 1172).

Fr. Josep Rovira, cmf, member of the CESC, explains how young Anthony Claret lived situations that led him to rethink the meaning of his life and give a radical vocational response. We pray that the celebration of World Youth Day  may become an opportunity for many young people to deepen their experience of encountering Christ and dare to follow and announce him.
