As you have probably read in the newspapers or seen on television news, last week the Chilean region of Atacama was struck by terrible flooding which caused much death and destruction.

In the name of the whole order we sent a letter to the National Minister of Chile expressing the affection and support of the whole Order for her, the OFS in her country and all those who were affected by this tragedy.

We would like to share with you her reply to our letter, publishing it here not only because besides giving a brief overview of the tragedy and its aftermath, she expresses the joy that comes from knowing that she is not alone but that the whole OFS fraternity is with her.

We leave it up to you, dear brothers and sisters, to decide how to express your affection and support for these brothers and sisters, a support that can also be expressed in concrete assistance.


Tibor Kauser

Minister General
