|St Cándida María de Jesús|
The Congregation of the Daughters of Jesus are awaiting this Sunday with eagerness. On that day, their founder will be canonized in St. Peter's. Blessed Cándida María de Jesús (1845-1912), a Spanish religious, born Juana Josefa Cipitria y Barriola, will be recognized along with five other blesseds.For the sisters the event "is a strong call to a more holy and dedicated life," and an occasion to renew "the dream of living every day according to the values of the Gospel and of being more centered on the person of Jesus Christ, as Mother Cándida was," Sister Anna Maria Cinco Castro, a member of this community and the postulator for the cause of canonization, told ZENIT. Juana Josefa was born May 31, 1845, in northeastern Spain. She always expressed special sensitivity for the poorest, for abandoned children and for prisoners. In 1868, at age 23, she met Jesuit Father Miguel José Herranz, who helped her respond to her call to found a congregation. Thus it was that in 1871, the Congregation of the Daughters of Jesus was born in Salamanca together with five women and inspired in Ignatian spirituality.
