(Rome) – The Redemptorist spirituality course for the Spanish speaking confreres began in Rome on Monday 27th of August, with the participation of 23 confreres from the (V) Provinces of Dominica-San Juan, Campo Grande, Buenos Aires, Chile, Paraguay, Rio de Janeiro, Fortaleza, Bogotá, San Pablo, Central America, Manaus and Bahia. The course will end on 16th September 2018.
Under the direction of Fr Piotr Chyala, the director of the Spirituality Center together with the collaboration of Frs. Manuel Rodríguez and Cristian Bueno, there will be a training program on the Redemptorist Spirituality that includes the pilgrimages to the most significant and historical places of the Congregation. During the course of time the General Consultors Frs. P. López and A. Eseverri, and the professors of the Alphonsian Academy, Frs. A. Amarante, S. Majorano, A. Marrazzo and also the confreres of the Generalate, Br. M. Vinicius, Fr. P. Saturno will share the concerned topics based on the Redemptorist Spirituality.
The meeting of the Redemptorists is already a sign of the spirit of restructuring where confreres gathered from different countries, overcoming all their cultural and linguistic barriers, to witness and share the charism of the Congregation. Furthermore, the presence of a lay Redemptorist, Dr. Julio Roballo, who has so closely shared the historical journey and the mission of the Redemptorists in Colombia, is also a great sign of the Redemptorist charism that is renewed and shared with the laity.
We thank the communities that accompany this event with their prayers and we hope to experience the richness of this spiritual renewal when the confreres return.
