Admission to the novitiate in the Province of Brasil Centro-Norte

07/03/2010: Brazil

On 2 February, feast of the Presentation of the Lord, Charles Amorim de Mendonça, Edigar Barraqui and Fabrício Alves da Cruz were admitted to the novitiate of Notre-Dame de l’Assomption of the Brasil Centro-Norte Province.

The admission ceremony was marked by its winning simplicity and atmosphere of prayer and brotherhood. Among those present were Brothers from the Marist communities of Maraponga and Aracati. The prayers of Brothers, Sisters, friends, and faithful of the ecclesial communities present helped make this a unique and profound human experience for these young Marists before God.

The most powerful and moving moment in the celebration was the handing over of the Constitutions by Brother Salatiel Franciscano do Amaral, at the request of Brother Wellington Mousinho de Medeiros, Provincial Superior. With this gesture, a grateful Brother Wellington recalled the moment of his admission to the novitiate, when he received the Constitutions from the hands of Brother Salatiel, his Provincial at the time.

The novices thanked God for having brought them this far, and prayed that his Spirit would speak to their hearts, just as he had spoken to Mary and to Champagnat, bringing them closer to Jesus.
