BROTHER JUSTINO SÁNCHEZ RETURNS TO MEXICO (30.06.2005)

Date: 4.7.2005
Source: Custody of the Holy Land

Thirty years ago, in 1975, Br. Justino, a humble and affable Franciscan brother, short in stature but well-loved by everybody, arrived from the Province of the Holy Gospel in Mexico to offer his service to the Holy Land Custody. Br. Justino was sent as a sacristan in the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem. He was affectionately known by everybody as the Guardian of the Child Jesus. He was sacristan in the Grotto of the Nativity, working hard day and night, during moments of peace and also during difficult moments of tension.

Br. Justino was always prudent and joyful. This is how the Franciscan brothers, the pilgrims and the guides remember him. Br. Justino had a kind greeting towards all of us, and he gave an example of being a man of prayer. Br. Justino returned to Mexico because his health is now failing him. Without any shadow of doubt he will continue to sing the carols of Bethlehem and his eyes will always continue to shine with the light that spread out from the dark Grott into all the world: Glory to God in the highest heavens and peace to his people on earth.
