5 Testimonies of Vocation Week in Seville, Spain

The Regnum Christi members in Seville, Spain, recently had a vocation week to encourage young people to consider a vocation and parents to encourage it. The week included many events but five testimonies from the week stand out.

Almudena Fernandez, consecrated Regnum Christi

“You called me to be consecrated, when I’m with you, I feel safe. You know me and you know what I need. Thank you”.

Iesu communio

María Millan, mother of a nun Iesu Communio (a community in Spain)

“You have answered all my questions, it is not my vocation but my daughter’s. When I ask myself: ‘Why can’t she be with us, her family?’ You answer me, ‘she has found her way and in heaven there are no families – we will all be family.’ She chose the better part, to be your spouse. When I miss her, you grant me peace and love. Thank you for calling and helping other parents give out what they have received freely. We are a breath in life but the love of God is always and forever. “

Jose Mª Cabrera, father of a nun Iesu Communio

“You know me, you know that the most important thing for me are my children, they are the treasure that you have given me. You have taught me that my strength is not worth anything; your plans are not ours, thank you for choosing it “.

Jaime Barón, candidate for Missionary of Charity

He is preparing to enter the seminary of the Missionaries of Charity , founded by St. Teresa of Calcutta, next fall after spending a year in India working with the sisters.

“I was looking for you and I got lost. I looked for you in unbridled nights, I looked for you and I got lost, I fled far away, I ran away from everyone, I ran away from myself. When my eyes were looking down, my heart jumped towards You, I met your eyes, I found you at the door of my heart, waiting for me to open the door for you. My Jesus, from that moment your love could reach through my misery: everything made sense when your mercy healed my wounds.

“Lord, you called me to quench your thirst, Your infinite thirst for love, for the thirst of those who have nothing in my brothers, the poor. Today I thank you for your mercy, your love, my Jesus I thank you for all those people you have put in my path that have led me to you. I thank you especially for my parents, those who tirelessly endured everything, all for love, like you in that cross You have called me to follow you with the words ‘take your cross and follow me.’ The road is long, but only you matter, my God.

“I would like to ask you, Lord, that you show to all these young people, especially for my friends, you know what names are in my heart, the path to You. Lord, show them that your life fills their lives, that your love dominates them, find that meaning to the life that only You give “.

Fernanda, Young Woman in ECYD

The ECYD young women of Seville visited the sisters of the convent of San Leandro during this week and heard testimonies of the vocation and the daily life of prayer.

After the visit, Fernanda reflected, “I realized that at our age, we need form ourselves to support ourselves in our family. They are going to be the ones who inculcate us and show us the path we must follow without being distracted by material things, which take the focus away from what we are made for, to go to heaven. So every time we have to try to organize more things in family and spend more time with her so we can focus on our true mission for this life.”

The events of this week included vocational testimonies to the students at the Highlands School, a visit to the monastery of the sisters of the convent of San Leandro and the Eucharistic adoration in the church of St. George organized by the Vocation Action Circles of Seville. The testimonies above are from these events.
