“As the Father has sent me, even so I send you”. After saying this, he makes the gesture of breathing on them and adds: “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven” (vv. 21-23). This is the meaning of the mercy that is presented on the very day of Jesus’ Resurrection as the forgiveness of sins. The Risen Jesus passed on to his Church, as her first task, his own mission of bringing to all the concrete message of forgiveness. This is the first task: to announce forgiveness. This visible sign of his mercy brings with it peace of heart and joy of the renewed encounter with the Lord. ( Pope Francis)
Our mission as Capuchin Poor Clares is to live the Gospel.
We live our contemplative life in a cloistered community,
joyfully embracing a life of poverty and fraternity.
Our cloister is a visible sign of our total consecration to God.
