Habay-la-Vieille: launching the year of Marist Spirituality

16/10/2007: Belgium

What a beautiful day we have just spent at our house in Habay, Sunday 30 September! In fact, at the initiative of the Belgian Fraternities 25 lay people (teachers, principals, young Marist animators, members and friends of the Fraternities…) and a dozen Brothers gathered at our house. Our guest, Brother Jean-Pierre Destombes, had come all the way from Notre-Dame- de lHermitage to animate this meeting.

During the morning he galvanized the assembly in a very rich exchange around the notions of charism, spirituality, each ones special vocation, vitality… The picnic spent together in simplicity allowed many people to form new bonds.

During the afternoon, beginning with a lively power point presentation, Brother Jean-Pierre presented the recent document, Water from the Rock by inducing us to deepen its contents personally or sharing in groups.

This first part of the meeting ended in a celebration: the year of Marist Spirituality was thus launched!

After a short snack the members of the Fraternities as well as others interested prolonged the day with the Brothers of the General Council visiting our Province (Emili Turú and Peter Rodney), in a spirit of mutual listening and encouragement.

Evening was falling on our region when we all left, a new enthusiasm in our heart and a strong desire to live intensely that year of spirituality which had just begun.

Bro. Albert ANDRE
