The Death of Claretian Sister Encarnación Velasco

Madrid, Spain. On Saturday, January 7th around 5:00 p.m., after a long illness, Sister Encarnación Velasco Fernández, RMI died. She was Superior General of the Congregation of the Sisters of Mary Immaculate, Claretian Missionary Sisters. At the time of her death she was 71 years of age and lived 46 years in religious life. May she rest in peace!

When a missionary dies, we should celebrate the last rites with devotion, fraternal love, and simplicity. We should remember all our brothers who have gone before us in the service of the Gospel, commending them to the Lord with the prescribed prayers, especially in the celebration of the Eucharist.

We should show the same reverence and respect for our departed parents and for deceased collaborators of the Congregation.
