The MIM Official Newsletter:  Ang ULIRAN (formerly LA BEATA)

          From the early years of its establishment MIM Official Newsletter carried the name LA BEATA.  In the Philippines, beata is referred to a pious woman who lives a life committed to the Lord’s service.  She may live individually or with other women of the same goal.  Mother Ignacia was one of those beatas so the MIM Newsletter carried its banner as LA BEATA from 1988 to 1999.  The change was made on suggestion from the RVM General Postulator in Rome considering the fact that BEATA means BLESSED and since the Cause of Mother Ignacia is still underway, it might be misconstrued that there is a claim that Mother Ignacia has reached the stage of beatification.  Hence the change of the name to ANG ULIRAN starting from the June issue of 1997.


Ang ULIRAN as a means of Communication

          Ang ULIRAN, as the MIM official Newsletter, is a vehicle or means to reach out regularly to the different MIM Chapters and Units throughout the Philippines and some countries outside the country.  Pertinent information on Mother Ignacia and MIM activities that are perceived to help the MIM members to remind them of the goal for which the movement exists are being published herein.  Ang ULIRAN is the main promotional material spreading to the MIM members and other readers about Mother Ignacia and her life.

          Reports from the different Chapter and Units showed that they use the topics that appear in Ang ULIRAN for discussion in their meetings claiming that their knowledge about Mother Ignacia and her life is being enhanced.
