Perpetual Profession of Br. David Alejandro Castillo Menchaca

On May 27, the Marist Province of México Occidental celebrated the perpetual profession of Br. David Alejandro Castillo Menchaca, in the chapel of the Marist University of Guadalajara. Br. Luis Enrique Rodriguez, Provincial, received the vows on behalf of the Superior General, Brother Ernesto Sanchez Barba.

The celebration was also attended by Br. Luis Felipe González Ruiz, Provincial of México Central, several Marist Brothers, family members and guests.

During the celebration, Br. David spoke about his Marist experience and his desire to sincerely accept Jesus’ invitation to him: “It is worthwhile to open our hearts and see God through all those around us. It is worthwhile to listen and to be listened to together with those in need. It is worth spending your life working for children and young people. It is worth working to be the maternal face of the Church. It is worthwhile to be called brother and to feel that I am a brother to all of you,” said Br. David.

At the conclusion of the event, Br. Luiz Enrique thanked Br. David for his commitment and reminded him of the three Marist vows: “to live chastity, which is to live with an open heart, to live with a universal heart that is attentive and available. To live poverty, which is a simple, austere and unpretentious way of life. And to live obedience, which is nothing more than to discern day by day what God wants of you”.

The solemn profession of perpetual vows was broadcast live on the Facebook page of the Mexico Occidental Province.
