María Alejandra Machuca C.María Alejandra Machuca C.The habit was blessed and offered to Maria Alejandra Machuca Caceres reminding her of her free commitment to follow Jesus Christ according to the Constitutions of the Congregation. It is a sign of belonging, revealing our identity. Wearing the habit means to be a preacher of truth, committing our life in the service of Charity, to be recognized as a testimony of love of God and living member of the Church. Maria Alejandra gives herself with Mary and like Mary with a burning lamp, to contemplate the inexhaustible treasure that the Father has placed in her heart, to build with Marie Poussepin the house to live the Gospel without fear or disappointment in the joy of responding to the call.
