We recognize that this is only the beginning, which makes us very pleased and happy, but there is much more to do. There are more incarcerated men to serve. This accompanies and contributes to the valuable processes of the prison authorities in the common search for men to be able to rejoin our Salvadoran Society, in a significant way with changes to each life, family, community, and faith community.
Being there and witnessing the enormous creativity of these brilliant minds, makes me emotional. We can perceive the humanity of each person and see their desire to change, their longings for Freedom. We witness how their ideology of evil is gradually replaced by values and principles that have to do with Transforming Power.
In total, there were 163 men in sector 11 with whom we met, shared, and now remember with a lot of love and joy. All these men recognized that they can do their part to change and move forward in the midst of what they have lived. They will begin to reject all those behaviors that have not allowed them to live in Peace.
