Seventeen brothers are taking part in a programme for community animators from Feb. 18 – April 21 in El Escorial, Spain.

Brothers Ángel Medina, Joares Pinheiro and Antonio Peralta are accompanying the participants, who are from Mexico, El Salvador, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina and Spain.

Br. Angel Diego García Otaola labelled it a moment of “grace, privilege, luxury, a gift of God that comes to life in our day to day shared life.” 

“Our provincial brothers, following our constitutions, offer us ‘periods of adequate time’ for our permanent formation,” he told the general house press office on March 10. “This time is also a challenge for each one of our participants, in that we can feel the call to a new way of being brother, in our job and in our community lives.”

“This time is organized in spending a lot of time living together and time of formation offered by different people, who help us to deepen our personal and community life,” he added.

Formation includes all aspects of the person, including his relationship with himself, with the other brothers, with the world and with God. 

“This is a richness that is enhanced by the internationality and multiculturalism of those who participate, and that helps us to open ourselves to what is new.”
