La Valla: House of Light

 

Letter of Brother Emili Turú - 25 March 2017

Download:

The letter, titled ‘La Valla: the Lighthouse,’ is the thoughts of Brother Emili on the Institute’s third and final year of preparation for this year’s bicentenary.

The Institute is celebrating the bicentenary on three dates this year: Jan. 2, the anniversary of the founding of the Institute, June 6, coinciding with the feast of Saint Marcellin and Sept. 8, with the opening of the General Chapter.

This marks the eighth and last letter Br Emili has written since being elected as superior general in 2009.

In it, he underscores the need to make space for contemplative prayer, which helps one live life with greater awareness of God’s presence, rather than living it in a superficial way.

Br Emili also describes La Valla as our “lighthouse that shows us the way,” a metaphor he uses to explain God’s presence within and revealed in prayer.
