Get together of the Home in November and a concert with the musical group 'Salve' in Mostoles, Madrid (Spain).
A few weeks ago, the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother organized a very special event in the parish of Our Lady of the Rosary in Mostoles: an evening led by the musical group 'Salve'.
Salve’s members are Oswaldo and Arce, a Mexican married couple who are a true example of lay missionaries and evangelizers. Oswaldo founded in Mexico, several years ago, the musical group ‘Xaire’, that was like an earthquake at the service of evangelization. They were fifteen people working full-time, traveling non-stop and giving large concerts before thousands of people, doing an enormous good to souls. It seemed that the normal path would be to continue singing… until the Lord changed their plans and, after a series of events, brought Oswaldo and Arce to Spain to do missions. The other members of the group were scattered about in different places and it seemed that our Lord wanted to plant seeds in order to multiply the harvest for the Kingdom of God.
We shared with them a day retreat for adults and families of the Home of the Mother. Their testimony is truly impressive. Arce is an architect and Oswaldo is a businessman. They had a good life and lacked nothing… But they left everything to evangelize with their music, living by Providence, and not as a metaphor but as a reality. After sharing their testimony with us in the church hall, we headed to the church for adoration. We loved that, by their way of singing, of talking, and, above all, their way of “being” in front of the exposed Blessed Sacrament, they were constantly reminding us that the important One was the Lord, that the One who was longing to speak to us was Him, not them.
We would like to give thanks to Oswaldo and Arce for their testimony of life in the service of the Gospel. We're already looking forward to their return to our gatherings!
