REVITALIZATION: Father Prior General shares with the religious of the five South American countries the keys to change PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 30 October 2011 00:42

Fr. Miguel Miró visited between June and October most of the Augustinian Recollects working in Brazil, Guatemala, Colombia, Mexico and United States to explain the process of change being undertaken in the centuries-old Order. "How can we revitalize our charism? How will we approach the process? Why do we have to reorganize? How are we going to cope with the difficulties? Do we want change?" These are some of the questions the prior general had to discuss in his meetings with the religious.

Fr. General with the members of the Province of St. Augustine

 

The General Chapter held towards the end of 2010 challenged all the Augustinian Recollects to make "a daring, oblative and passionate option", i.e., the option to abandon all material guarantees and be open to the initiatives of God by earnestly listening to his Word.

The Tidings: A Family of Equals on Perlita Avenue PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 10 October 2011 16:18

October 7, 2011, Cristo Rey Church, Los Angeles, California - Perlita is Spanish for “little pearl.” And that is exactly what is found along Perlita Avenue in Atwater Village — a small gem in Cristo Rey Church, the pride of the neighborhood for seven decades.

Small and inviting, Cristo Rey Church is always packed for Mass.

The 350-seat church was built by parishioners with their own hands at the height of WWII when materials were difficult to find. One parishioner, Teodoro Estrada guarded the lumber by sleeping with his dog in his car so no one would steal it. That love and devotion continues today, as evidenced in the way the pastor, Augustinian Recollect Father Galo Espinoza, and members of the Guadalupanos meticulously clean the church together — mopping the floors, dusting the statues and caring for their parish.
