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).

Thanks, Fr. Ramon Caralt Roca, CMF.

The Claretian Missionary, Fr. Ramon Caralt Roca, was born on April 20, 1939 in Santa Cecilia de Voltregà (Barcelona) and has just completed his missionary pilgrimage on June 17, 2020 at the Manresa hospital.

For these last years he was a member of the Claretian Community of Sallent. Previously he had been a member of several Communities of the Claretian Province of Catalonia.

His health had long declined quite a bit and in recent months it worsened inevitably.

His apostolic work was varied throughout his missionary life; but his dedication was above all to the preaching the Word of God in towns and parishes, and for some years in the central hospital of Bellvitge (Barcelona) with the sick. (more…)

Circular letter from Claret to the people of his diocese (May 28, 1853)

We have received from the Claretian Fr. Jorge Alonso Clavijo (Córdoba, Argentina) this digital copy of a printed letter from Archbishop Saint Antonio María Claret, written in Santiago de Cuba on May 28, 1853. One of the original copies of this letter has been recently found by Fr. Jorge while ordering the archive of the Community. We appreciate his attention. Even though we already had a copy of this document in the CESC Archive, this is a good reason for us to remember once again the pastoral activity of our Founding Father.

As the reader can see, it is a letter that Claret addresses to all the clergy and faithful of his archdiocese. You can find the entire text with explanatory notes in: José Mª Gil, “Epistolario Claretiano”, vol. I, Madrid 1970, pp. 824-828 (EC). This book can be found on this CESC website. (more…)

Claret and the Protestantism of his time

We are pleased to communicate to the entire Claretian Family and to all who are interested in the figure of Saint Anthony Mary Claret (1807-1870), that the second volume of the “Urget” collection has already come out. The name “Urget” is extracted from the Pauline text that Fr. Claret took as his motto for his archbishop’s shield: “Caritas Christi urget nos” (2Cor 5.14). The first volume of the collection was the work of the Claretian Carlos Sánchez Miranda: (more…)
