Meeting of brothers of the third stage (Iberia)

The annual meeting of brothers of the third stage took place in Casa de San José, El Escorial (Madrid) from 19-22 April.  This was after a 2 years gap on account of the pandemic.  

Fernando Cordero sscc animated the days structuring them around three themes: old age (taking into account the teachings of Esteban Gumucio sscc), living synodality and the Congregation today. Some brothers knew Esteban in life, others were glad to get to this outstanding figure better. Around synodality, the brothers shared what they have been experiencing in their local areas and communities, as well as having the opportunity to have some spiritual conversation in two groups. 

Finally, the participants showed great interest in the current situation of the Congregation, where they highlighted, above all, a number of signs of new hope. 

These few days involved being together, praying together and fraternal reunions, which culminated with the celebration of the Eucharist, presided over by Aurelio Cayón sscc, provincial superior, who had been with the brothers throughout these days. The brothers really appreciated the figure of Esteban, a religious of the SSCC, being chosen to animate the meeting. The brothers have asked that next year one more day be added.
