Undergoing Consecration Today
Ps. Fernando Alexis Jimnez For eight years decided to separate from everything and all, and with a last one watched the town of old woman houses, wide streets and ednicos gardens where it grew, it undertook the ascent to the mountain where it resides in a grotto. Julian Alberto Arinoa Montes is one of the few Latin Americans who a day decided to separate from the world that surrounded to him to go in search of God, in the middle of the solitude and with the firm conviction to go beyond a superficial experience. He resides in a hill, near La Paz. His around, tens of peculiar look for opportunity to be with this singular hermit of modernity. Catholic or evangelical Christian? He prefers to be called Christian. In his humble one dwelled in only there are a few wax candles to illuminate itself at night, foods that to him people of near villages give and five books, among them the Bible and a text of meditations. He is the unique thing that accompanies to him.
Good part of to its occupies it day in praying. It is a step to have greater approach with the Creator. In criterion of Julian, she has been one wonderful experience. No longer they need to him the noise of city of La Paz or perhaps the few places of old architecture that delighted to him in Santa Cruz of the Mountain range. Present its body to God in sanctity Why it decides somebody to be distanced of the world and the reality that surrounds to him? Everything depends on the appreciation that each has about which it is the consecration. For the anchoret Julian Alberto Montes, it is not another thing that to go away where nobody can find it. For a today Christian it is to dedicate to God all our being, as the apostle recommends Pablo: ” So, brothers, I request to you by the mercies of God that you present/display your body in alive sacrifice, santo, pleasant to God, that is your cult racional” (Roman 12:1). You do not need to take the way from the hermit.
The easiest footpath of consecration is to give to Mr. Jesus Christ our thoughts, plans, projects and activities. When we feel that it oppresses the downheart to us, to request its strength and, taken from its hand, to advance a step more.
