Interview of Fr. Martin Trieb O.S.B. with Dr. Peter Martinez

What signal does the Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard give to society?

The signal that the Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard gives to society in South Africa and society in particular is that in an area which is the epicentre of the AIDS epidemic in South Africa the Brotherhood is fulfilling critical needs at a very critical time and the Brotherhood is basically about people helping themselves and we are demonstrating here in Mandeni that South Africans can indeed help themselves to address this terrible new epidemic, this war with on an unseen enemy and we are doing it with the help of our many faithful volunteers and benefactors both locally and around the world. The other signal to South African society is a manifestation of the words of our founder Blessed Gérard, who said 900 years ago that God willing there will always be people in this world who would be willing to work to root out the misery and pain in the world and this is what we are doing here in Mandeni.
