Perpetual profession of Br Eduard Olivé

28/10/2011: Spain

The Province of the Hermitage had the joy, on 12 October, of celebrating the final profession of Br Eduard Olivé in the parish of the Holy Family of Igualada (Barcelona).  Brothers of the Province and the many participants at the ceremony followed Br Eduard’s profession with joy and pride.

The ceremony was a simple one. Br Eduard’s « personal stamp » and the significance of making profession as a Marist Brother were evident on several occasions. The most relevant and most specific moment of the religious profession was certainly the acceptance by the Br Provincial, Maurice Berquet, of the taking of the perpetual vows – of poverty, chastity and obedience – pronounced by Br Eduard. The rite concluded with the bestowing of the professional cross.src=http://www.maristes.cat/cat/images/stories/articles/E_111015/IMGP0389.JPG

Br Eduard was able to take note that he is in the heart of many persons: parents, Brothers, monitors and youth of the Marist Scouts Centre (CMS), of the Federation of Youth Associations « Mà Oberta-Cor Obert », of the parish of Christ Redeemer in Barcelona, where he is working, as well as the teachers, pupils and Parents of the school « Maristas-Igualada » and, of course, his friends. All were anxious to accompany and congratulate him on this important step in the life of a Marist Brother.

The Eucharist concluded with a hymn to the Good Mother and to Saint Marcellin Champagnat. Celebrations continued in the Marist school, where those taking part shared glasses in friendship, in exchanging sentiments, experiences and joy. In the festive atmosphere, Br Maurice Berquet and the parish priest, Fr Ferré, presented a little souvenir to the family of Br Eduard in the name of the Hermitage Province.

And all that was possible thanks to the call made one day by Jesus to Eduard, and to his trusting and generous response.
