In this episode of “In the Footsteps of the Nazarene,” we present the hopeful testimony of Sr. Maria of Guadalupe Rodrigo, Argentinian of the religious family the Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE).
Sr. Guadalupe has been a missionary in the Middle East for nearly 20 years. During her time in the community of Aleppo, violent conflicts, which were especially anti-Christian, broke out in Syria. In this interview, she joyfully explains the change that the Christian community experienced due to this religious persecution; from more or less lukewarm Christians, they’ve awoken to the reality of their faith and the real possibility of martyrdom. Now, in the Western world, Sr. Guadalupe longs for the joy and passion for the Gospel, which is so alive in the persecuted Church.
