On the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Pontifical Approval of The Work of the Church, the Apostolic Penitentiary has granted the gift of PLENARY INDULGENCE to all the faithful who, in a true spirit of penance and moved by charity, may visit in a form of Pilgrimage any sacred place entrusted to The Work of the Church, and there may devoutly participate in the Jubilee rites, or may remain there for a significant period of time in pious prayer.
The singularity of The Work of the Church arises from the figure of its foundress, Mother Trinidad. The Work of the Church is simply the continuation of her mission in the Church.
The purpose of The Work of the Church is expressly stated in the above-mentioned Decree of Pontifical Approval: “Its purpose is to live so deeply the mystery of the Church so as to unravel the richness of this Holy Mother, and, being a living witness by its life and word, it may present the Church in all its beauty before the sight of all men, so that these, when looking at Her, may see the face of God in Her and be replenished with the abundance of Her life.”
Mother Trinidad, Who is she?
Mother Trinidad de la Santa Madre Iglesia was the foundress and president of The Work of the Church.
She lived her consecration to God ever since her youth. In long periods of silent prayer, God ushered her into His intimate life, making her live with profound wisdom and love all the mysteries of our faith. This is how He made of her His witness, with the special mission to sing the beauty and wonders of the Church, helping Her to be presented as She really is in the sight of all men.
For more than 28 year Mother Trinidad lived in Rome, close to the See of Peter, carrying out her mission to help the Pope and Bishops with all God had given to her soul for the Church; and with the self-offering of her life and of her sufferings for the Church. She passed away in Rome on July 28th 2021.
"Go and tell it,
this is for everyone!"
The Work of the Church, What is it?
The Work of the Church is an Institution of Pontifical Right founded by Mother Trinidad of the Holy Mother Church.
It is made up of three Branches of consecrated life: priests, laymen and laywomen who compose the main body of The Work; present as well are other groups that embrace all possible states and vocations within the Church: married and non-married persons, members privately consecrated to God, youth and children. Different walks of life, yet all of them share one and the same mission: to deeply live their condition of being members of the Church by a humble life, always at the side of the Pope and Bishops through both life and words to help them carry out the work Christ has entrusted to them.
By means of its apostolate centres and thanks to the work in the parishes entrusted to The Work of the Church, its members seek to reach out to everyone offering them the living and delectable knowledge of God and His mysteries with the continuous effort to make their life and words reflect the light which the Lord placed in the soul of Mother Trinidad to help the Church.
Living Theology For Everyone
“It is necessary for theology to be made accessible to all the children of God giving it to them kindled up with love so that they may live in intimacy with the Divine Family”
Three classes of silence are perceived, in sacred savouring of eternal mystery, there in the depth of the spirit, in the inner contact, sacrosanct and silenced of the soul with God, and in the times before the tabernacle, immersed in the mystery of the Lord of the Sacrament Who hides, silenced behind the nights of mystery, waiting should someone come to visit Him.
Children, help me to help the Church; to sweep the rubbish that has fallen in the course of time on the transparent and unblemished mirror, so luminous and shining of Mother Church, where, behind the brilliance of Her luminosity is reflected, revealing itself through the face of Christ, the face of God in Her…!
Today I kiss You, like an enamoured bride, trembling and adoring, in the passing of the ages in all those particles that have fallen on the ground; in order to tell You, in the tendernesses that from my soul have arisen, when discovering the mystery that has afflicted my spirit in loves, so that I may love with this new nuance of my wounded heart…
