From 6 to 12 January we had a propitious time to renew the experience of the call and following as Carmelite Missionary Sisters, accompanied by our sister María José Mariño from the province of Europe. These were intense days of personal encounter with God from the realism of our history where the following of Jesus is woven, an opportunity also to ask ourselves: What is God's will in this humanity that always tends to separate itself from him? We have received many insights to live our consecration in depth and to assume in our daily lives the practice of the values that have been a priority for Jesus: inclusion and universality that dignifies especially the most disadvantaged.

This was followed by a charism workshop with the participation of sisters, lay people from the animation programmes and CMS. It was two days of fraternity and a lot of learning, deepening the ecclesial experience of Father Palau who urges us today to live in our contexts a communion that pushes us to the mission.

Peru is currently experiencing a deep crisis that is exacerbating the fragmentation and confrontation as a country. With almost 50 deaths as a result of repression and clashes in marches at national level, especially in the south, we have not yet found paths of justice and reconciliation. In this complex and challenging reality we continue to hear God's calls to be more coherent with the path of peace and justice that Jesus proposes to us in the beatitudes. May Francisco Palau accompany us on this journey and transmit to us his courage to project ourselves into something greater from a deep experience of communion in the diversity and complexity of our surroundings.
