The Feast of Blessed Edmund Rice

Rarely does Sunday find a place in the OP daily report on the website.  However, the feast of Blessed Edmund Rice makes for a worthy exception.  The main event to mark the occasion was an invitation by the Brothers’ Karen community to a moment of prayer, followed by a meal together.  The Brothers from the OP joined the Karen community as well as Brothers from the Otiende and Embulbul communities.  This was a moment to celebrate the inspiring vision of Edmund Rice who opened his whole heart to Christ, present and appealing to him in the people made poor in his native Waterford at the beginning of the nineteenth century.  The work of Blessed Edmund Rice continues to this day in many parts of the world and especially in the developing world of Africa and India, not to mention South America and Oceania.
