Abstract

“Go throughout the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to all
creatures!” (Mk 16:15)
June 29, 2009 was the Golden Jubilee of the Foundation of the
Institute Id of Christ the Redeemer, Idente Missionaries, a new form
of Consecrated Life in the Catholic Church.
1. Fernando Rielo: Founder
He was born in Madrid on August 28, 1923 into a very religious
family. He spent his childhood surrounded by the affection of his
parents and under the impression of being protected by our
Heavenly Father, whose constant, close presence governed his whole
life, and later marked the lifestyle of his spiritual sons and daughters.
The Spanish Civil War jolted him directly from a happy childhood to
a youth filled with suffering. At the age of sixteen, at Valsaín
(Segovia, Spain), an intimate experience marked him forever. It was
the call of our Heavenly Father: “Be holy, my son, as I am holy.” He
himself stated, “And I promised Him that I would always repent of
whatever displeased Him and would spend my whole existence
seeking his will..., and I began to wish ardently that these words of
the Father would enter into the hearts of all men.”
