Marist vocations today in Oceania

14/05/2004: Australia

Marcellin, whose heart knew no bounds, wound up saying that “every diocese in the world figures in our plans.” Time is confirming his vision. All over the world more and more young people are tuning in to his spirituality (being with Jesus as Mary was, i.e., in His company, listening to His Word and putting it into practice, being practical and ready to help, alert to people’s needs, committed in solidarity with those subjected to modern-day crosses) and to His mission (“I cannot see a child without telling him how much God loves him and wanting to teach him about our faith”).

In recentweeks, Brothers Antonio Ramalho, General Councilor, and Ernesto Sánchez, Secretary of the Religious Life Commission, have visited the Interprovincial Pre-Novitiate in Fitzroy, Melbourne (one aspirant and one postulant), and the Pre-Novitiates in Honiara, Solomon Islands (10 postulants) and Wewak, Papua New Guinea (16 postulants, not counting the 7 who are living in communities). They have also visited the Novitiate in Lomeri in Fiji, which has 14 Pacific Islander novices who are preparing to enter fully into our Marist life.

These young men testify to the fact that the Lord continues sending out invitations and Marcellin’s dream is as vivid as ever.
