Meeting of the Postulation Team

06/04/2005: Mexico

The brothers of the Postulation Team, Mariano Santamaría, Alain Delorme, José Flores García, Jorge Flores Aceves and Giovanni Maria Bigotto, met in Mexico from the 7th to the 16th March 2005.
We concentrated mainly on three points:
1 – The proximity of the beatifications of Brother Bernardo and Laurentino’s group for whom we must prepare a climate of spiritual welcome: awareness and prayer, and also prepare the concrete aspects: books, pictures, relics, DVDs, scarves, portraits… We do not yet have a date but it would be better to be ready.
2 – The 10th anniversary on the 21st January 2006 of the death of Brother Basilio. Many initiatives will be taken in Mexico and throughout the entire Institute.
3 – The 10th anniversary on the 31st October 2006 of the death of our four brothers at Bugobe, Congo: Brothers Servando Mayor, Miguel Ángel Isla, Fernando de la Fuente and Julio Rodríguez. With the Brothers Provincial who are more directly involved in this, we will see if it is appropriate to start a cause and how we can highlight this 10th anniversary.

All of this is part of our Marist history and patrimony, which enriches our Marist reality.
The brothers of Mexico, in particular Brothers José Flores García and Jorge Flores Aceves, welcomed us in a very warm and fraternal way.
- It was possible for us to meet the family and friends of Brother Basilio and the places where he lived as a child.
- At Guadalajara, His Eminence Cardinal Sandoval, also received us in a warm and friendly way.
- We were able to have a long discussion with the Justice Promoter of the Diocesan Tribunal who is looking after the cause of Brother Basilio and then with the notary of this tribunal.
- We made many visits to the communities and colleges of the brothers, giving us a chance to witness the daring apostolate of our Mexican brothers.
- In the sanctuary of Our Lady of Guadalupe, so dear to all Mexican Christians, we prayed for the entire Institute.
We returned with the image of a Mexican people who are warm, happy and energetic but also with the conviction that there is a lot of work ahead of us and that all of us need to open our hearts to what is needed for the events of the beatifications and anniversaries. To our brothers in Mexico a very sincere thanks.
