Fr. Américo Paulo dos Santos Freitas Maia, cmf, from the province of Portugal, has selected a series of texts from the circulars written by Fr. José Xifré as well as from three of Fr. Xifré’s books (El auxiliar de los Misioneros, Espíritu de la Congregación y La gracia Divina) related to spiritual life and he has translated them into Portuguese.
This accurate and arduous work allows us, a year after the closing of the Xifré Year, to turn our regard to the spiritual magisterium of someone who was Superior General of our Congregation for more than 40 years.
We are given a new opportunity to drink from the sources of our missionary charism and find in these texts some encouragement to live our apostolic vocation with greater fidelity and dedication.
