A book is being prepared on the martyred brothers of Spain

13/07/2006: Spain

The writing commission for this book on the martyred brothers of Spain who will soon be beatified met on the 27th June 2006 in Madrid.
Brother Santiago Fernández served as secretary of the work group formed by Mr Juan María Laboa, professor of Church History at the University of Comillas (Madrid), Mr Feliciano Montero, professor of History at the University of Alcala de Henares, Fr Julián del Olmo, priest, journalist and editor in chief of the magazine Présence mariste 7, Mr Juan Pedro Castellano, head of religious publications of the Luis Vives publishing house and Brother Andres Carpintero, Marist Brother.

At the meeting, we studied the possible difficulties and clarified the objectives, the aims, the contents and the work method. This work could serve as a foundation for further publications and for materials in education and youth ministry in Spain or elsewhere in the Institute. During the exchanges, we outlined the plan of the book on which we will work during summer and autumn so as to have a practically definitive work at the end of the year. We will be able to translate it into the official languages of the Institute and produce material from this reference text.
The life of the martyred brothers, given day after day in love (“as the grain of wheat”) can inspire our lives if we take note of their testimony in all evangelical simplicity. That is our aim and we will strive to attain this in all our activities.
