Society of Our Lady of Guadalupe Prayer Centers, A.C.
We answer the same call but with different charisms, the Prayer Centers from Mexico, United States, Spain and Costa Rica decided to form an Institution that would unite us and give us presence within the ministries of the Catholic Church. That's why since 1998 the directors of all the Prayer Centers met to draft the Constitutions that now govern us and to walk in communion.
The recent interview to Pope Francis (2013) answered our vocation:
Pope Benedict said. I ask Pope Francis, in light of what he has just told me: “What does the church need most at this historic moment? Do we need reforms? What are your wishes for the church in the coming years? What kind of church do you dream of?”
Pope Francis, picking up on the introduction of my question, begins by showing great affection and immense respect for his predecessor: “Pope Benedict has done an act of holiness, greatness, humility. He is a man of God.”
“I see clearly,” the pope continues, “that the thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful; it needs nearness, proximity. I see the church as a field hospital after battle. It is useless to ask a seriously injured person if he has high cholesterol and about the level of his blood sugars! You have to heal his wounds. Then we can talk about everything else. Heal the wounds, heal the wounds... And you have to start from the ground up.
