Being salt and light

Being salt and light

Santa María de Los Negrales Center, Covadonga, Father Poveda's Cave in Guadix.

Santa María de Los Negrales Cultural and Spirituality Center hosts in its residence in the mountains of Madrid persons or groups seeking a space of peace and beauty where to reflect, share, or discern; a place of self-encounter and encounter with God and others; a place where one can rest, work, and grow as a person.

The TA House in Covadonga, called La Casina, today is a place of hospitality, for coming together and prayer. It brings us closer to the origins of the Teresian Work and to the experience lived by Saint Pedro Poveda Castroverde in Covadonga.

The memory of the presence and work of Father Poveda in Guadix, even after more than a century, is still very significant. Going through the places that he used to travel in the city and especially in the neighborhood of Las Cuevas, is an inspiring experience that helps one understand the educational and social roots that Father Poveda transmitted to the Teresian Work since its foundation.
