With the Text of the hymn “Te fuiste humilmente”, we inaugurate a new section on the CESC website, dedicated to poetic texts dedicated to Saint Anthony Mary Claret. Little by little we will publish texts in different languages.

“Te fuiste humilmente” is the work of the Claretian Fernando VILLA. Another Claretian, Luis ELIZALDE, put music to him. It was the hymn composed on the occasion of the celebration on October 24, 2020, the 150 years of the death of the Saint.


Father Claret, your anxieties…

PADRE CLARET, TUS ANSIAS…

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…)

You humbly left (Claret, 150 years old)
