SANTA MARÍA LA BLANCA SYNAGOGUE
Since 2008 we have had a presence in the Synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca in Toledo, to carry out a spiritual service, in which our vocation of unity and unconditional love to the Jewish people is expressed. We have a constant presence in the courtyard of the Synagogue where there is an exposition and during the year we organise occasional prayer vigils in the interior of the synagogue.
For centuries the chosen people prayed in this beautiful synagogue. In Toledo, Jerusalem of Sepharad, the fervor of so many souls in love with Him who is the Most Holy One and His Commandments, palpitates within.
The Fraternidad Maria Estrella de la Mañana possesses in its vocation the joy of contemplating this relationship of nuptial love between God and the Virgin of Zion, just as the Holy Spirit murmurs in the Canticle of Canticles. If all the books of the Tanaj are holy, the Canticle of Canticles is holier. (Rabbi Akiba)
The Judaic and Christian mysticism have nursed and continue to drink from that font from the Blessed Zohar to the Spiritual Canticles of Saint John of the Cross.
An unlikely encounter between Israel and the Church arises in Santa Maria La Blanca. Yes it´s possible and desired in the One and Only God and in Love. Yes, the unity is possible for those who love God and love from His love. May God bless you and make you holy.
