Opening of the Fourth OFM Chapter of Mats under ten
How good and beautiful when the brothers are together! (Ps 133, 1). How good and beautiful that we are gathered here at this Chapter, brothers from all the continents and the most diverse countries and cultures! How good and beautiful is that we can call ourselves brothers and show it as such! The Lord gave us brothers (cf. Test 14). As we now raise our eyes and look around us and see so many brothers, our faces becomes radiant and our hearts swell with joy over the abundance of grace the Lord bestows us (cf. Is 60: 1-5).
