Email Print PDF

ChileguitarsLuis Ponce is a widower, 73 years of age and lives in Alto Hospicio, Chile. Known as Brother Ponce, he is everywhere serving others, visiting the sick, getting rights for old people, doing liturgies in the drug rehabilitation centre, receiving people at the door of the church of San Columbano. He was brought up in foster homes and as a young worker representative was kept in detention by the military government. Reunited with his wife and family he began driving a taxi. Four years ago he was told he has cancer but it seems to be in remission. He says "I believe the Lord wants me to make Him present".
