"And I sing, and I danced and I give you my heart. My joys, my work, I will give you everything I am.”
As you can see, they are not your average community of nuns. They spread the Gospel through new media and use music as their main vehicle.
They are known as The Eucharistic Communicators of the Heavenly Father and live in Cali, Colombia. They were founded a little more than a decade ago by Father Antonio Lootens from Belgium and Mother Gabriela del Amor from Colombia.
"It is something that is also created by our founders, who were inspired by Pope John Paul II when he said that there had to be people dedicated to evangelize in mass communication, precisely because the powerful reach it has among followers. Father Antonio told us that today people no longer read books, they are more involved in the world of communications. These is how people rationalizing world concepts, their reasons for living. And that's when the Pope stressed that we must be the gospel in this form of media, Christ must be present.”
Jubilee of Mercy plays a big part of their message with a song that they had saved for a long time, until recently. This is their latest music video you can see on their Youtube account.
"Your mercy and your compassion, O God. Receive my misery in your heart.”
"This arose before the Year of Mercy, but we did not give the same level of strength before. It was there on standby. And then the Holy Year came and through the Lord's grace we said, 'we must record it'. And it was the last song that was published in our social networks.”
They are a contemplative-active community. They pray at night and work during the day, but their work does not stop at music. They work as a television broadcast station dedicated to God. In fact, you can watch them on their Youtube channel.
"Remember: To give for free for those that received for free. Do not feel sorry for talking about your faith, do not feel sorry for posting these messages of the Gospel.”
They say they do not want to convince anyone to take chose their path, they just want to give testimony of how happy they are for giving their lives to God.
"How would a party in heaven look like? I wondered as I prayed. Jesus gave me the answers in a dream and I want to share it with you, to it sing with you. Teresita picking up flowers, Francisco talking to pigeons, Thomas writing a book, Antonio looking for what was lost.”
