The brothers from the Province of “Cruz del Sur”

06/10/2004: Argentina

On the 15th August, the brothers from the communities of the city of Buenos Aires and nearby areas came together to celebrate this special day of Our Good Mother.

At midday, more than sixty brothers gathered around the altar on the huge property of the Senior Brothers’ Residence, Villa Champagnat, at Pilar. This was a time of prayer and praise to the glory of our Good Mother, asking for her protection.

We were also privileged to have amongst us some younger brothers from communities from further inland. These brothers were spending a day at Luján. It was a time for sharing different experiences, recent memories and also memories that were not so recent. The presence of the older brothers, whose rhythm of Marist life is more tranquil now, was enriched by the vitality of the middle-aged brothers and especially by the joy, openness and eagerness of the younger brothers. It was a time to savour thanks to the prayer led by Brother Eugenio, the presence of Brother Demetrio and the table fellowship that we shared.

We then enjoyed the traditional Argentinean roast meal, which was particularly succulent on this occasion, with the appropriate beverages that gave great cheer to all. It is great when you can share with other brothers at a table ringing with screams of laughter.

After the meal, some small groups went for a walk, some played cards and some discussed their plans for the year. We regained our strength again, under the tender care of our Mother, to continue with our task of building together a province renewed in the light of the Southern Cross (Cruz del Sur) and in living the dream of Saint Marcellin.
