XVIII National Meeting of the Marist Fraternities

The XVIII National Meeting of the Marist Fraternities was held at Toluca in Mexico on 2, 3 and 4 November 2012, with the motto : « Let the one who is thirsty come to me and drink. »

Organised by the Fraternity « Agua de la Roca » with the support of its sister Fraternity « Estrella de la Mañana », the meeting developed in a joyful family climate, where we felt welcomed, brothers and laity, by all the affection of our hosts.

Five topics were treated which prepared heart and spirit to celebrate in depth the Sunday Eucharist. In « To the rivers of living water » it was a question of  conversion and the need to remain united to the Father. The other themes were : « Love of Jesus and his Gospel », « To become rivers of living water », « The Holy Spirit will come upon me », « Stay and persevere in Mary’s way »

All the times shared – prayers, meals, dances and ‘mariachi’ music – were times of animation for the spirit and the heart.

On Sunday, after a moving Eucharist presided over by Mgr Francisco Javier Chavolla, Bishop of  Toluca, each Fraternity received a wooden cross symbolising the commitment to make Jesus the centre of our lives. At the moment of farewell, we felt united by the sharing of the Marist vocation which  encourages us to continue together building up the Marist family.

Our friends of the Frat of Toluca inform us that they have opened a group on Facebook to keep in contact by this means and share photos and testimonies on the way God has spoken to us during the meeting : https://www.facebook.com/EncuentroDeFraternidadesMaristas2012
