“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; ” His mercy is eternal!” (Psalm 117)

Living on the second Sunday of Easter, also known as Sunday of Divine Mercy, the Province of Brazil-Bolivia, and especially the Parish of Sao Marcos, in the presence of Belo Horizonte, celebrated the Sunday Eucharist in thanksgiving for the 40 years of priestly ordination of the Provincial Superior Fr. Javier Aguirregabiria, and the parish priest and coordinator of the schools Fr. Fernando Aguinaga. The celebration was attended by the religious and the liturgy team. All biosecurity protocols were followed and accompanied by hundreds of people from all over the Province through social media transmission.

In his brief reflection, Fr. Javier, in reference to the passage of the Gospel of Sunday “Jesus made many other signs before the disciples, which are not written” (Jn, 20.30) emphasized the importance of these signs that made and continue on the path of both, at the service of the Church, through the Pious Schools, in dedication to the little ones.

We praise God for the gift of life, for giving them the vocation to the priesthood, and we also appreciate the generous dedication of each one and the dedication of so many years, as Piarist religious.
