Meeting of the Reference persons of the Fraternities of the Champagnat Movement of the Marist Family of «Cruz del Sur»

15/04/2013: Argentina

The annual meeting of the  Reference persons and Brother Advisers of the Province of «Cruz del Sur» took place on 23 March in the Provincial House, in view of the updating of the Champagnat Movement of the Marist Family.

It began with the participants reflecting on the Message of the IV Provincial Chapter. The accent was on the elements which give more engagement to lay Marists in regard to the three calls : courageous breaks, fruitful continuities and vital innovations.

Then Br Demetrio Espinosa presented the four components of the new scheme of Provincial Animation, emphasizing the place of the Champagnat Movement within the Animation of Vocations, as well as the initiatives concerning the formation of the laity.

In the course of the morning, the Reference persons devoted themselves to an evaluation of their experience in Fraternity according to what is expressed in the Secretariat’s letter of 28 May 2012. This activity was considered a preliminary exercise for the Reference persons so that they could then motivate the members of their fraternities to do an evaluation of the local meetings.

At the end of the morning, we shared the conclusions of our experience in the Fraternity.

After lunch, with the help of a video, in which the Br Superior General presented to the Provincial Assembly of «América Central» some ideas relative to the way of constructing «new ways of life», we reflected on the need to move towards greater inner freedom, in order to live in a coherent way the challenges posed by the changes of the time.

The Reference people received material for preparing their meetings and for so being in a position to revitalise their community experience. They also received motivation for carrying out activities of solidarity.

The meeting finished with a moment of prayer which prepared us for the Procession of the Palms and the Eucharist.
