Spiritus Edición Hispanoamericana – La misión al servicio de la vida

La Palabra de Dios, la presencia de Cristo y la vida del Espíritu Santo se revelan y se hacen próximos en la fe viva y comunitaria de los cristianos. La Experiencia y la praxis de las comunidades constituyen entonces el primer lugar teológico de una reflexión sobre la vida de la fe.
Lo mismo pasa con la reflexión misionera. A partir de la experiencia y de la acción concreta, del encuentro y del diálogo con los no-cristianos, del nacimiento y del
crecimiento ininterrumpido de la Iglesia se va construyendo la teología de la misión.
Spiritus es una revista trimestral, fundada en 1959 y llevada por un grupo de institutos misioneros masculinos y femeninos en Francia. A partir de 1996, se amplía la revista y comienza a salir una edición hispanoamericana de la revista en Quito, Ecuador. Spiritus quiere, dentro de esta visión, identificar y profundizar en las cuestiones que hoy en día se le presentan a la experiencia misionera, esclarecer y
fortalecer la misma vocación misionera, y poner de relieve las dimensiones del crecimiento y de la apertura que son la vocación de todos los cristianos.

International Conference for the Ongoing Formation of Priests

Speaking of “generative” service, the Pope said service is “the identity card” of Christ’s ministers. He recalled that the Lord witnessed this by His entire life, and particularly at the Last Supper, when He washed the feet of His disciples.

“Seen in this light,” the Pope said, “formation as service is not simply the transmission of a body of teachings, but also the art of concentrating on others, bringing out all their beauty and all the good that they carry within, shedding light on their gifts but also on their shadows, their wounds and their desires.”


“For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body” (1 Cor 12:13). This is the experience, full of joy and gratitude, that we have had in this First Session of the Synodal Assembly held from 4 to 29 October 2023 on the theme “For a Synodal Church. Communion, Participation, Mission”. Despite our diversity of backgrounds, languages and cultures, through the common grace of Baptism we have been able to live these days together with one heart and spirit. We have sought to sing like a choir, many voices as though expressing one soul.  The Holy Spirit has gifted us with an experience of the harmony that He alone can generate; it is a gift and a witness in a world that is torn and divided.
