COSTA RICA, Fr. José Luis Correa
University life has a rhythm, sometimes it is very dizzying, many would consider it impossible to think that students would have time to pray. In Costa Rica “Tempranitos del INCAE (INCAE Early- birds) believe that prayer is precisely the best fuel to sustain the different aspects of life during the time at university.
On Friday, 26 May 2017, Alejandro Robles F., the son of a Family Federation couple from Costa Rica, will graduate with honors with a Masters of Business Administration from INCAE (INCAE Business School, Aljuela, Costa Rica).
By the Blessed Mother’s hand and through his own initiative, he was able to found, a group of students called “Tempranitos of INCAE” (INCAE’s Early-birds).
More than thirty participants, the majority from other Latin American countries, some married others single, who lived on the campus for two years, prayed the Rosary weekly on Wednesdays with the picture of the MTA. Attendance increased and during the last semester despite the fact that Alejandro was in Germany as an University exchange student, the Rosary continued.
INACE’s Rosary has now become a tradition.
