What is God asking me? What is God asking us?



An Assembly of the Marist Brothers in Ecuador

17/06/2005: Ecuador

From the 21st to the 23rd May, we met to share about our community experiences and to reflect on the report on the Province of Norandina given by the General Councillors, Pedro Herreros (Chile) and Maurice Berquet (France). These were days of brotherhood, prayer and discernment of the challenges that the world of young people presents us in the sector of Ecuador.
What is God asking me? What is God asking us? These were the profound questions that we faced and shared in a fraternal ambiance and to which we wanted to give answers in order to live today in Ecuador, in creative fidelity, the charism of our saintly Founder.

Revitalised through brotherhood and the deep conviction that Marist charism is more needed today than ever before to form the generations of young people, we returned to our communities with the deep joy of being able to share our vocation as teaching brothers with the laypeople who work in our Marist apostolates.
We must emphasise the participation in this meeting of all the brothers who are working in this country. They were three days of reflection and discernment on the Marist presence in Ecuador and its future. The brothers shared their experiences and presented their suggestions on ways to organise our communities and apostolates in the future to the Provincial Council. Frank dialogue, the freedom to be able to state different views, respect for diversity and brotherhood were the predominant aspects of the meeting.
