10 years on the road of the Marist communities of Cuba

On the occasion of the visit of Br Provincial and his Council to the Brothers of Cuba on 7 May, we came together for a sharing on our Marist presence in this land. The meeting had been prepared for by a document describing our journey over the last 10 years. Sharing on the historical precedents, national and ecclesial context, current presence of Marist life, the profile of the brother, Marist community and mission in Cuba, reflection on our poverty as religious,  vocations ministry and Marist formation.

We were able to note the mysterious and efficacious action of God in the history of our journeying in Cuba since 8 August 2001, at the service of the Cuban Church and people. Our desire is to continue to spread the Good News of Jesus and his message of the Reign of God from a perspective of littleness and humility, but full of hope.

Numerous are the challenges we have to face but we hope that Jesus, Master of Life and History, will continue to be our companion on the journey.

May Mary of the « Caridad del Cobre », patroness of the Cuban people, continue to encourage our  march ; she is the one who will continue to be our ordinary resource.
