Brothers, we are holy ground with a future



Cruz del Sur Provincial Assembly

Recently, the Cruz del Sur Provincial Assembly took place in Luján with the gathering of 110 brothers of whom 17 were from the District of Paraguay.
With the theme “Brothers, we are holy ground with a future”, the Province plan was presented thanks to a dynamic that lasted two days in order to clarify this plan. We had brought soil from each of our communities in the Province as well as typical fruits from each region. We also looked for optimistic and pessimistic justifications in our community, missionary and vocational processes.
On the Saturday afternoon, we mainly worked on our feelings and reactions, both personal and community, concerning the departure of brothers who have left the Congregation. We took time to relook at this experience with the eyes of faith and by evaluating our fraternal accompaniment. The Eucharist terminated this first day of analysis and brotherhood.

On Sunday 16th October, we met with some young brothers to speak about the vocational experience of brothers in temporary vows, about the birth of their vocation, about making their decision whether it was a personal initiative or an invitation from a brother, about their current life with their doubts and their certainties, their expectations and their plans, and about their confidence in the vitality of the charism of the Founder. All of this moved us to give thanks for their generosity and to thank God who continues to call and who expects us to be more daring.
Father Gerardo Ramos, a priest from the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Betharram Congregation, accompanied us and focussed on current religious life and its relation with our culture from the point of view of mission and the choice of vocation.
The highlight of the Assembly was the celebration in honour of our Brother Jubilarians: 60 years: Brothers Antonio Bratina, Roberto Vighetto and Alberto Antolín del Alba (Paraguay); 50 years: Brothers José Villacorta, Nery Ernst, Martín Jacob and Antonio Sack; 25 years: Brothers José Kuhm and Francisco Vera Martínez (Paraguay).
We give thanks for their fidelity in Marist life. We presented them with a souvenir and we celebrated during the Eucharist and the closure of the assembly with a traditional banquet.
