For Bengoa and all the members of The Work of the Church, it is a day of joy and happiness, although with the sorrow of not having her physically among them, but with the hope that God fulfills his promises.
“We feel her very close to us here in Rome, in the chapel where she is buried,” he said.
“Now it is time for all the members of The Work of the Church to spread this message with renewed enthusiasm to the People of God and make it known, as we have been doing in recent years, by means of talks, retreats, and missions that we organize in many parts of the world, for children, youth, priests, religious, bishops ... this is for everyone,” he added.
The following are some of Mother Trinidad’s most popular phrases, taken from her writings, which can be found on the website of The Work of the Church:
— “Go and tell it, this is for everyone!” That is, the life of God, of Christ, Mary, and the Church are for all men, and we are all called to live and participate intimately in God’s infinite love.
— “I was born for the Church, and the Church is my song!” Mother Trinidad felt in her whole being to be the “echo” of the Church, whose purpose is to repeat with fidelity by singing the life, mission, and tragedy of Holy Mother Church.
— “Glory for God…! That alone…! The rest does not matter, it does not count, it is non-transcendent …!” A phrase she repeated thousands of times, especially in the last years of her life, to engrave it with fire in our hearts. To live is to give glory to God through the fulfillment of his will, and that is the only thing that matters, here and in eternity.
