The Generous “Yes” of Six Little Brothers of Mary

29/06/2009: Mexico

June 14th marked the occasion of a first profession. There were six of us who conse-crated our lives to the Lord: Beto, Vale, Toño, Adàn, Mario and Pedro. The phrase we used to sum up the occasion was, “Father, consecrate them in the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17). Jesus’ words are an invitation to follow along the pathway of discipleship as Little Brothers of Mary.
The profession ceremony, presided by Father Juan Dingler, S.J., took place at Saint Marcellin Champagnat parish. Father Juan had been our spiritual guide during the days prior to the profession.
A celebration took place after the profession with family and friends in attendance, along with others who had played an important role in our formation. The meal was held at the retreat house. There we celebrated and shared the happiness we have come to know in deciding to follow Jesus in the Marist Brothers’ way of life.
And now? . . . . there opens before us the road that leads to the Scholasticate. Beto,, Vale, Toño and Pedro will go to the one in Guadalajara; Adán and Mario, to that of Mexico Central.
It is a wonderful thing, to hear God’s invitation and to respond to it: a dream, a com-mitment and, more than anything else, a mission that began a long time ago in the heart of a particular man who experienced God’s love: Marcellin Champagnat.
