Forge 24: With the Pastors

Nov 26, 2019 | The Forge

Madrid, Spain. The 24th edition of The Forge continues advancing at the Claretian Renewal Center in Los Negrales (Madrid). After having lived the second stage “Followers of Jesus in Community“, which along with several dynamics included a week-long pilgrimage to the Holy Land, they are now starting the third and final stage called “Missionaries with Spirit.”

Two Pastors are among them these first few days of the third stage: Msgr. Rubén González Medina, CMF, Bishop of the Diocese of Ponce (Puerto Rico), who will spend few days living with them and know more the dynamics of The Forge; and Aquilino Cardinal Bocos Merino, CMF, who spent an afternoon in The Forge, answering various questions the participants about the Church and the Congregation in a climate of fraternal dialogue.

This is indeed an extraordinary presence within this special moment of their lives, which broadens their ecclesial and congregational horizons “to the ends of the world“, as our Founder liked to feel. All the best!
