05/07/2019: El Salvador

About forty lay men and women from El Salvador participated, full of motivation, in a day of reflection and prayer on June 16.

The meeting provided an opportunity to meditate on the spiritual journey that has been achieved, to experience fraternal communion and toreinforce their Marist journey.

The focus of analysis was centred on the spirituality of the first Christian communities, and was animated by Nohemy Pinto, provincial coordinator of the Lay Commission, and also by Brother Javier Espinosa.

One of the reflections that most caught the attention of the participants was to consider that for the first believers, the fact of meeting to break bread meant in turn meeting to build fraternity, because they were convinced that where fraternity is not built, the Lord's supper is not celebrated.

The message that penetrated deeply into the lay people present was that "the first Christian communities invite us to celebrate what is lived and to live what is celebrated".

During the day, the dynamics which were developed, helped those present to give priority to spiritual actions: the prayer of silence, listening to the Word and praising nature; the gestures of breaking bread and sharing it, blessing and celebrating the meeting with a glass of wine. Actions that served to remind the first Christian communities who knew how to integrate the communion of life with the breaking of bread, with the Eucharist.

The group expressed its desire to continue meeting.
