Celebrating various jubilee anniversaries of religious life

With the end of the brothers’ retreat at Luján, Argentina celebrated the life and the presence of our brothers who were celebrating various jubilee anniversaries of religious life:
80 years: Brother José de la Vallée (Filogonio)
75 years: Brother Eutimio Mérinos
70 years: Brothers Alejandro Herrero and Ange Dix
60 years: Brothers Eutiquio Abad, Roque Farneda, Emilio Rubiolo, Jesús Andrés, Carlos Garola, Heureux Anesa
50 years: Brothers Fermín Bahl, Enrique Comptai, Emeterio Pérez and Enrique Alastuey (District of Paraguay)
25 years: Brother Antonio Ortega (District of Paraguay))

Gathered together in the crypt of the chapel of Villa San José in Luján, we took the time to browse through different times and aspects of our jubilarians, thanks to projected images and times of listening to testimonies of those concerned and of their confrères. The words of Brother Demetrio, Provincial, on behalf of everyone, summed up the gratitude and thanksgiving to God as well as the presentation of a souvenir as a thank you for their fidelity and their contribution to our Marist life in this region of America.
In the Eucharistic celebration, we celebrated them thanks to the candle, a sign of our gift to the service of Christ and thanks to the renewal of their vows, a sign of their perseverance in the fidelity to the vocation and to the charism of this consecration. Bishop Julián Barrio Barrio, bishop of Santiago de Compostela visiting Buenos Aires and Father Ignacio Del Viso, Jesuit and preacher of the preceding retreat, presided at the Eucharistic Celebration.
Many brothers and family members and friends accompanied us in this family celebration. We note the presence of the brothers of Brother Emeterio Pérez Mayor who, accompanied by their wives, came to celebrate the fifty years of his religious life and to take the time to be better acquainted with Uruguay and Argentina.
The celebration finished with a meal, a time during which we shoed our joy and fraternity and we took the time to renew our affection and our gratitude for so many years of generosity.
