Pedro Poveda, a presence that inspires and encourages

MADRID. Spain

May 4 marks the seventeenth anniversary of the canonization of Pedro Poveda by Pope John Paul II in a massive ceremony in Madrid’s Plaza de Colón.

This event is in the memory of all those who were able to be present on that joyful morning when, together with the Jesuit José María Rubio and nuns Genoveva Torres, Ángela de la Cruz and María Maravillas de Jesús, Pedro Poveda was declared a saint. To remember him is also to make him present today, to share the life and work of this man, priest, humanist and educationalist, founder of the Teresian Association.

In these moments of pandemic, worldwide, where many are perhaps disoriented and searchig for meaning, Poveda inspires and accompanies us in the commitment to live the values of the Gospel and to put our trust in God and our energies at the service of the Kingdom.

To accompany us on this day, you can access here some songs inspired by words of Poveda. auriculares
