News of our Brothers in Lebanon

03/08/2006: Lebanon

Dear Brothers and friends: Although we correspond with you quite frequently, we wish to send you some paragraphs to inform you of the particular situation in our communities.
Thank God, the Brothers and their families are very well, with regard both to health and morale. Due to the circumstances in which we are living, we have had to give up almost all of our summer activities and this allows us to spend more time on our community life, prayer and personal reading. We are obliged to be greatly involved in all that is happening, and a part of our time is employed in following the news on the television and then commenting on them in community. Many families are in contact with us because of the difficulties in starting the course and the decisions that we must take should be based on prudence. We trust that in spite of everything, the Lord will give us peace.

Most of the personnel working in our schools have left on holiday. As we are in a Christian area, the armed conflict has not reached our centres.
For the time being they are an oasis of peace and tranquillity for us.
In general, we see in people a desire to help those who are suffering. United in well-disposed groups, beyond all politics, they help the needy families in a way which is admirable.
Brothers and laypeople of the Marist world have written to us demonstrating their interest in us and telling of their suffering and concern brought on by this current situation. It is a joy to feel ourselves to be members of such a great family. We appreciate in a special way the presence of the Brother Provincial among us, through his daily calls.

Brother Georges Trad is in almost permanent contact as much with the Brothers here in the Lebanon as with those in Spain.
A warm embrace, and in union of prayers.

The Brothers of Lebanon.
