Marist communities met in Talnique

Last Saturday, May 2, 2009, the Marist communities of El Salvador met in Talnique, La Libertad, to celebrate the first Intercommunity Meeting of the year. Thirty-four Brothers attended. Talnique, a mountain village dedicated almost totally to the planting and harvesting of coffee, is located in the mountain range of Balsamo, an area which was hit hard by the earthquakes which occurred in 2001.

We were received in the parish hall by the Brothers of the present Talnique community: Efrain Romo, Agustin Guezmes and Miguel Angel Martinez. Besides enjoying the happiness of the meeting, we were also able to share the reflection done in each community on the Orientation for the XXI General Chapter and, with that, to dream of the future and to sense and join together in the journey of our Institute and the Marist life taking root around the world.

At the end of the morning, Brother Hipolito Perez, Provincial, shared with us some news about the journey of our Province. Then we celebrated the Eucharist and ended the meeting with lunch. We are grateful for the preparations and care of our Brothers of Talnique, who gave each community a package of coffee, the fruit of the labor of the farming community of this village with which they share life and faith on a day to day basis. The dream of Marcellin Champagnat is vibrant and present among the poor and needy people of this Salvadoran village, thanks to the dedicated life of our Brothers.

Bro. Luis Manuel Gomez
