The Brothers of Ecuador – One-week Annual Retreat

19/03/2010: Ecuador

From the evening of February 10 through the morning of the 16th, twenty brothers and four lay people had a five-day encounter with the Lord and with one another. All of us took this short time to be away from our sharing our lives with the children and youth of Ecuador in the Marist mission of education and evangelization. Brothers Ramón Benseny and César Rojas successfully directed the retreat with scriptural and Marist depth.

Our prayer, meditation and moments of sharing were centered on an attempt to go more deeply into the Message of our XXI General Chapter, and we were invited to set out on a new way of being Marists today that responds to this moment in history. At the closing, Br. Wilson Torres spent some time sharing with us thoughts on his meeting with some brothers in Guatemala regarding initial formation, and Br. Libardo, our esteemed Brother Provincial, offered us some important reflections based on his personal conversations with the brothers and the proposal of our recent provincial chapter: To come up with a project of provincial unity based on the centrality of Jesus, the relationship between brothers and laity, solidarity, formation and the need for vocational promotion. A relaxing time of fraternity, chatting and playing the night of the 15th was a pleasant way to bring these days of retreat to a close.
