José Flores García, Chepo, begins his work as Vice Postulator

17/06/2004: Mexico

Who was Brother Basilio Rueda?
He was a Mexican Marist brother who started out as a teacher in Marist schools in Mexico City. Then he was director of the formation house in Querétaro. Later he was involved in the Better World Movement, founded by the Jesuit Father Lombardi, in Mexico City, Rome and Quito. After that he was director of the spirituality center in El Escorial, Spain, and while there he was elected Superior General.

What are the reasons why his cause for sainthood is being initiated?
First of all, because of his extraordinary personality that encompassed spiritual, pedagogical, and philosophical realities and the religious life after Vatican II. Second, so many people acclaiming him for his virtues, spirituality, teachings, love for the Church, and adherence to the will of God.

Brother Basilio didn’t keep office hours…
You’re right. He was always ready to welcome others. He tried to find at least an hour a day for his personal prayer and meditation. Almost always, he had to snatch them late at night or in the wee hours of the morning. It’s amazing how he maintained his availability and even-tempered ways in spite of his long hours.

What interest does the holiness of Brother Basilio hold for the Church?
Brother Basilio is a man of great significance in our world since he learned how to integrate faith, culture, and life in profound and harmonious ways. He can serve as a model for living the Christian life in these postmodern times.
