Seven young Brothers make their first profession

21/12/2007: Colombia

The Interprovincial Novitiate La Valla is happily celebrating a feast, with great outward enjoyment as well as with spiritual happiness. Flowers and garlands are plentiful and there is an atmosphere of happiness and celebration everywhere.
Certainly, there were retreats and many prayers where we all felt very close to Jesus, Mary, Champagnat and, of course, to all the Brothers of our integrated Provinces.

The main reason for the celebration is the religious profession of our seven Brothers.
In Colombia: Vladimir Viveros, Fredy Jacanamijoy, Jorge Chamorro and Héctor Colala.
In Haïti: Toussaint Forestal, Wilguins François and Jean Mance Luis Jeune.

The date chosen was December 8, the feast of Mary Immaculate, What a beautiful day!
At 7.30 a.m. gathered at the Lourdes grotto: Fredy and Jorge, Vladimir and Héctor, surrounded by their respective families, Brother Laurentino Provincial, Brother Hipólito Provincial of Central America our old Master, the postulants, the first year novices and the Brothers who had been invited, held a beautiful prayer service to Mary Immaculate directed by Brother Marco Antonio, Master of Novices.

At midday we celebrated a family banquet, just like on a festival day, surrounded as never before by such good and numerous friends.
At 4 p.m. in the beautiful chapel of the Carmelite Sisters, we participated in the solemn sacrament presided over by a group of priest friends and there we held the religious profession of the four novices of the Norandina Province.

There still resonates in our ears and in our hearts the: I voluntarily and freely make into your hands, Brother Provincial … of our four newly professed.
Great applause and congratulations, Fredy and Jorge, Vladimir and Héctor.
Tomorrow we will hear applause and congratulations for our Brothers: Toussaint, Wilguins and Jean Mance.

In the course of the evening we finished celebrating the event with a rich barbecue, while Yan and his artists presented the work The secret of the mountain.
Once again congratulations to the newly professed and a thousand thanks to the many people who kindly accompanied us either closely or from afar.
A very cordial greeting to all of the members of the provincial Council and we wish them great success in their deliberations.

H. José Manuel Gómez
