New México Central provincial: ‘religious should awaken the world’



Superior general asks provincial chapter participants to work as a global institute

26/11/2015: Mexico

During the provincial chapter of México Central, its new head said that religious should help people ‘wake up.’ 

“Religious men and women should be able to awaken the world,” said the new provincial of México Central, Brother José Sánchez. 

His comments came during the provincial chapter of México Central, which took place in the provincial house of Quinta Soledad in Mexico City from Nov. 13 – 16.

Br José also asked the chapter participants to work on a “promotion of vocation and support of brothers and laity, the promotion of government structures and the acceptance of an increasingly intense dialogue with the Institute and the Arco Norte (region).” 

He also requested the new provincial council to be “brothers who are willing to use their life for the poorest and to form and give formation through updated processes of transformation of our structures.” 

Participants included brothers and laity as well as guests that included brothers from the México Occidental province, Brother Albert Rivera of the United States province, Marist Sister Mari Aranda and Marist Fathers Jean Vienne, Pedro Alarcón and Jesús Daniel Rojo.

The superior general, Brother Emili Turú, was the first to address the participants and asked them to “leave their role, personal interest or their representativeness to work as one body and work in giving the province a government made up of the best possible team so that Br José can do his work.”  

He asked them to “be open to the Spirit’s presence, leaving aside personal interests and representations of groups, changing the way of thinking in search for a new beginning in this province.” 

The superior general stressed the importance of knowing how to “work as a global institute, living a solidarity globalization.” 

Br Emili reflected on the importance of the laity as sharing responsibility with the brothers in the mission, not just as mere collaborators, and he thanked Brother Ricardo Reynozo, former provincial, for his “merciful service.” 

The new provincial council members are Brothers Juan Carlos Robles Gil, Javier Salcedo, Justino Gómez, Daniel Herrera, Luis Felipe González and Rodrigo Espinoza.
