Guest Speaker: Carmen Berrios

Soy una laica católica nacida en Puerto Rico y me mudé a Texas en el año 1998 con mi esposo y tres hijos. Trabajé como maestra de escuela primaria durante 20 años y durante ese tiempo también he estado activa sirviendo en la Iglesia Católica cómo: salmista, cantora, lectora, catequista (RCIA). He sido miembro del Ministerio de Magníficat desde hace 15 años.

El Espíritu Santo reactivó mi despertar espiritual a través de un retiro de Nueva Vida, donde pude experimentar el amor de un Dios vivo que me ama con un amor incondicional. Hace alrededor de unos 23 años le di el “SI” a Jesús y me encontré con una nueva forma de vida. Donde puedo dar testimonio de un Dios vivo que todo lo puede, todo lo sabe y todo lo ve y que no me ha desamparado en los mementos más difíciles de mi vida. Lo que he vivido en los últimos 23 años no ha sido fácil, pero lo he apreciado de una forma diferente, porque lo he vivido con mi Amado Jesús y Mamita María y la carga se hace ligera, porque no soy yo la que la carga, sino mi amado Jesús, el que la carga y yo lo creo.

Actualmente estoy ejerciendo como coordinadora del Capítulo de Magníficat Fort Worth y dedicada al servicio en la iglesia, así como de mis hermanos en Cristo y por supuesto de mi familia, ya que el Dios Todopoderoso sigue dando fruto en mi familia con mis cinco nietos, como dice Nuestra Madre en el Magníficat “por la maravillosa acción de Dios en su vida.” Y yo me hago eco de esas palabras.

Ven a escuchar este testimonio de conversión y entrega al servicio de Dios y a contagiar tu corazón con el amor de Dios.

HISTORY of Mary Queen of Peace Chapter of Magnificat, Indio California

[Diocese of San Bernardino, CA] In March 2010, Mrs. Donna Ross asked Gloria and Claudia to start a chapter of the Magnificat in Spanish because there was a great need to do so.
It all began as God makes the call through Donna Ross to Gloria to ask him to form Magnificat in Spanish.

Gloria and Claudia prayed and began to make the call in December 2010. Claudia invited her mom and sisters, Gloria also invited Angelica, in turn she to Ana Razo, and she to Elena Rosas and Remedios Vargas, Emilia and Juanita. The first meeting was in February at the house of Gloria and Claudia. In this first meeting they were Lupita, the mother of Claudia, Graciela, Donaciana, Normita and those mentioned before. At this same meeting s and Spiritual Directors elected the Fathers Gerardo Mendoza and Michael Barry, but our first Mass was with Father Luis Guido. We also searched for the name of the chapter and we all voted for “Mary Queen of Peace.”

May 13 of year 2011, the papers were made request to form the group, day of Our Lady of Fatima. On May 31, 2011, “Visitation Day,” was our confirmation of team selection,

In June of 2011, we had a meeting with the group Magnificat Our Lady’s Desert Roses and it was very edifying to see their organization and love between them. The people of the first group that was formed, we had the opportunity to go to breakfast in English and Claudia translated for us.

And in 2011 the chapter Mary Queen of Peace began with the approval of Bishop Gerald Barnes of the Diocese of San Bernardino and the direction of Father Gerardo Mendoza and Br. Mike Barry. The first breakfast was made on October 15, 2011 with the presentation of the speaker Sister Blanca Ruiz of Colombia.
