Dear brothers,

May the peace of Jesus Christ be with you,

Today, July 19, 2021, we celebrate the 5th anniversary of Carmen’s death; let us pray for her eternal rest, so that she can enjoy the presence of the Lord eternally.

Carmen was an exceptional woman, in love with Christ, scripture and the Eucharist. I thank God for Carmen. She was a deep, authentic and free woman in her relationship with everyone. She loved Christ and the Church; and the Pope, above all. Out of love for the Church and for the brothers, she has remained with me for 50 years; carrying forward this Christian initiation that is the Neocatechumenal Way.

We believe that Carmen is with the Lord, she is already at the party. Exceptional woman, truly, with an enormous generosity. A very important woman for the Church! She always lived in love with Christ. If you read her diaries, everything that said: “Jesus, I love you, I love you!”. On each page: “I love you, I love you!” Loving Christ is the only truth: “Love Christ and thousands will follow you,” say the Fathers of the Desert. I thought they were following me, but I discover that thousands of brothers are on the Way thanks to Carmen and for the love that Carmen had for Christ.

In light of all this, I ask D. Carlos Metola, as postulator of the diocesan phase, to make all the necessary steps before the Cardinal of Madrid, D. Carlos Osoro, to request that his Cause for Beatification be initiated.

Fr. Mario and Ascensión Romero send their greetings. Pray for us. Peace of Christ.
