Provincial meeting of the fraternities of CMMF

02/09/2018: Argentina

A meeting of fraternities of the Champagnat Moviment of the Marist Family of the province of Cruz del Sur took place in Luján (Argentina) from the 10th  to the 12th of August , entitled "In the footsteps of  Marcellin."

In a video played during the meeting, the Superior General, Brother Ernesto Sánchez, discussed  the topics of fraternity, spirituality and mission.  

"And it is clear to me that you, through your experience in these fraternities, are best placed to discover and to understand what it means to live the Marist charism as lay people and, I would say, to adapt it", he added. "The Marist future is based on the communion of people who live the charism passionately and also have to walk together." 

"We should look to share more responsibility in our life and  mission and we  must support our different " vocational" paths, he continued. "I believe that all of this confirmsthe existence of this movement. 

Brother Ernesto has personal experience of having accompanied  the fraternities in his country, in Mexico. He revealed that he has seen people who have carried out this "walk in depth" and that now they are "key people" in the Marist work. 

Alberto Aparicio, the Brother Provincial, stressed to the fraternities that "all Marists share the responsibility for the Marist life and mission."  

The 50 participants reflected on the significant places in the life of Saint Marcellin in relation to the life of the lay Marists. 

The meeting drew to a close on Sunday with a Mass in the Capilla de Fidelidad, in the Villa Marista San José.
