Perpetual profession of Bro. Márcio Correa dos Santos

18/09/2007: Brazil

On August 25th, 2007, Saturday, Brother Márcio Correa dos Santos, of the community of Maringá (Paraná), made his definitive religious consecration as a Marist Brother, pronouncing his perpetual vows. The ceremony took place in his hometown of Três Barras (Santa Catarina). Coincidentally, that day was Brother Márcios 33rd birthday. Some priests, together with numerous brothers, aspirants, and pastoral ministers, relatives and friends accompanied him in his generous decision, participating in the Eucharist and the celebration. In the course of the previous week, the final profession had stimulated an intense vocational work in the town, by means of presentations in parishes and schools, and activities that were carried out with young people and Confirmation groups.

Here are some enlightening words taken from Brother Márcios consecration formula: Only to you, O Lord, do I wish to offer myself, like a candle burning upon the altar; only for you, O Lord, do I wish to pour myself out like a river surrendering to the sea; only for you, O Lord, do I wish to be set afire, to give of myself, to dream.
